We welcome all journalists! 

Never before have the counties of Strömstad and Tanum hosted a World Championship in Orienteering. We are getting closer and we want to make this an experience to cherish and remember. As a representative from the world of media we want you to feel welcome!

Here in Sweden Orienteering started out as a competitive sport at the beginning of the 20th century. With slightly inaccurate maps and hand drawn courses the orienteers still found their way. Now more than 100 years later we can make use of technology to make competing fair and just. As Journalists you will be updated instantly and you can follow the runners live whether it is an urban sprint or a race in the forest.

We hope you will find everything you need in order to report back to your followers. You will find logos and photos free to use. The Accreditation is open and you find instructions how to apply in the menu to the left by clicking "Accreditation". 

If you have any questions, please contact Emanuel Winblad by email: press@woc2016.se or phone: +46(0)73-723 97 18.
