The FootO World Championships is in full swing in northern Italy this week. The sprint distance was an epic race in the middle of Venice last Saturday. Have a look at the TV broadcasting at NRK (just working in Norway I guess).
A lot of the athletes did big mistakes in the challenging corridors between the houses. When I had a quick look on the map I found it very similar to how we navigate in SkiO and MTBO, and maybe less normal for the Foot Orienteers. Also the penalty for losing the concentration for a second and running wrong in a junction without being able to “shortcut” back to your original plan makes this very similar to the two faster disciplines. I thought it should be interesting to see what the course would look like the “SkiO way” and made a map of it:
