2017-Handover at the IOF office

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.

2016 – We can all be proud and all the best for 2017


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. Brazil is the very best example of this. Let a picture from the WMOC 2016 be an example of this.

I wish you all Happy Holidays and the very best for 2017 !
