2017-Hamina, Finland. Best World Military Orienteering Championship ever !


Finland organized our 50th World Military Orienteering Championship in Hamina 10-16 June 2017. The first was organized in 1965 and has been organized annually since then except for three years. Finland asked me years ago to host the 50th Championship. If there is something you really want, you do your very best and the result will be outstanding. In addition to a “normal” WMilOC” they included a number of special activities to celebrate. Finland lived up to her reputation as an organizer and made this Championship a real memory for life. In my final speech I included without any doubts and hesitation:

This has been the best World Military Orienteering Championship ever !
