Orienteering World-record!

A Norwegian Orienteer set a new World Record last year - for competing in the most events!

Frode Konst of the Oslo club IL Tyrving ran in 142 races last year, beating Mark Thomson's (FVO) record of 140. He ran in 19 countries en route to his record and even took in a North Gloucester local event in December, just to make sure of his total!

The coutries he visited: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Austria, Hungary, Czech, Slovakia, Serbia and Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal and England.

He thought the most enjoyable race of the year was day-3 of the Czech 5-day, and the toughest was running the super-tough Norwegian Blodslitet then running a race in Goteborg the next day.
