Presidential Meeting at the IOF Office
Shortly after New Year met the outgoing President of CISM CSC Orienteering, Lt Col Harald Østbye (NOR) and the incoming president, Lt Col Lars Gerhardsson (SWE), at the International Orienteering Federation’s office in Karlstad, Sweden. Along with Mr. Tom Hollowell, IOF Secretary General and CEO, they discussed various forms of closer cooperation, not least the question of the future organizers of the World Championships.
The meeting in Karlstad is part of the ongoing handover/takeover between Harald Østbye and Lars Gerhardsson. Harald and Lars will work together in the spring of 2017, where Harald completes his service supporting the organizer of the WMOC 2017 in Finland. Lars will in turn focus on the coming events, such as the MWG in China 2019.
