The Event Advisor, Ramon Pineiro ESP, was in late June on his 3rd visit in the terrain. He is very happy about the preparations. Both the middle and long in the terrain, and the relay in the town of Buzios. The pictures are all from the middle/long area.View full post

My last 4 year period as President CISM Sport Committee Orienteering was 2012-2015. Norway did in 2015 support me for a new period of 4 years, 2016-2019. This was confirmed by mail to CISM HQ. I was re-elected Oct 3rd 2015. This was stated in a letter from CISM. All my plans and co-operation with CISM and future organizers have been based on this fact.
Later Norway withdrew the support of me. I am for this reason out of CISM. The CISM Sport Committee Orienteering and CISM have worked hard to find a replacement for me. So far no success. This will be a topic at the GA in week 17.
I have the archive, history and will continue to run this web page until we have a new solution.

Year 2017 will be the 50th anniversary of CISM orienteering. 2017 competitions will be arranged in June 2017 in Hamina, which is located in the south east corner of Finland, on the coast of Gulf of Finland. 2017 is also the centenary of Finland’s independence so there is a lot of weight to arrange great CISM 2017 orienteering week! After CISM competitions, all orienteers will get together at Jukola Relay in Joensuu.
Fin5 2016 orienteering week, from 10th to 16th of July, is the best opportunity to prepare for the CISM 2017. Competition areas are right next to each other and if competitions aren’t enough, we’ve a lot of high quality training maps.
Fin5 offers a great competition week for the elite classes:

Welcome to Hamina!
CISM Orienteering has organizers. Not all sports in CISM have. This is something we can all be very proud of. We have nations that want to organize. We have also runners and former runners who want to organize championships as a payback to CISM, because CISM has given so much to them. I really appreciate such attitude. South Korea is the very best example of this. Let a picture from the MWG 2015 be an example of this.
I wish you all Happy Holidays and the very best for 2016.
