Team USA to Compete in World Trail Orienteering Championships 2022

Orienteering USA is pleased to announce the team competing in World Trail Orienteering Championships in Jelenia Gora, Poland, July 19th-23rd. The team is a mixture of youth and experience. The most experienced members of the team are David Irving (SDO), Sharon Crawford (RMOC), and Clare Durand (LAOC), whereas the newest team member, junior Jarmo Latva-Kokko (Age 16 from NEOC) is participating in his very first WTOC.

David is likely our biggest hope for strong placement in the paralympic category, but Jarmo is looking to turn some heads especially in the timed Temp-O event. He is already ranked 4th in the US in Temp-O and his performance in the Philadelphia training camp this May was impressive. Clare and Sharon bring lots of WTOC experience to the team and are hoping to improve on their personal best. Bob and Karen have less experience in competing in WTOC, but have done well in recent US ranking events. The team is looking to improve from past WTOC performances. Three of the selected team members were unable to go to Poland this year, but hopefully will participate in future.

Selected team:

Open:

  • Clare Durand (LAOC)
  • Sharon Crawford (RMOC)
  • Karen Dennis (SDO)
  • Bob Cooley (BAOC)
  • Jarmo Latva-Kokko (NEOC) Junior

Paralympic:

  • David Irving (SDO)
  • Daniel Heimgartner (CRNA) unable to attend
  • Lee Kuxhaus (CRNA) unable to attend
  • Julius Schram (CRNA) unable to attend
