BJ is back


WorldofO Runners

David Brickhill-Jones has been kept out of competition by a series of injuries in recent years but made a comeback at the British Sprint Champs in early May, qualifying as a heat winner with only Graham Gristwood and Scott Fraser going faster, in other heats. In the final he could only manage 16th place, more than 2 minutes down on British Sprint Champion, Scott Fraser.

This was enough to convince the selectors to give BJ a shot at the World Cup Sprint race being held in conjunction with The Open Nordic Orienteering Championships in Salo, Finland, 10th June.

At the Finnish Champs BJ again qualified as a heat winner (=with former World Champion Jani Lakanen) but went on to back this up with another great race in the final. Nopesport wishes him well for Salo!
