World Schools Championships 2019 - Final Day
Saturday 4th May saw the Friendship Relay take place. Everyone is put into mixed teams of three, all are given a map and then between them decide who is going to visit which controls. As a team they have to have punched them all and have met at three specified controls during the race. Once they have them all they meet up and run into the finish together. This year Sophie Kirk, one of our coaches, took second place in the coaches’ competition.
After a visit to the lake and sauna the teams headed to the team prize giving and Closing Ceremony.
The Older Boys England Team of Jim Bailey, Dom Dakin, Flurry Grierson, Finlay Johnson and Oliver Tonge took Gold ahead of Sweden and Latvia. Thanks to coach Ben Chesters.
The closing ceremony then took place and ISF flag was then handed over to Serbia for the ISF World Schools Championships in Orienteering 2021.
It was then time to party !
