The French Federation criticizes IOF

WOC 2009, Hungary

The French Orienteering Federation published today an official statement about the WOC Relay race. They criticize the IOF, and ask for chosing fairplay and ethics instead of invalid result lists.

"In the minutes following the event, numerous discussions took place between the team managers, the organizers and the IOF" - the French Federation writes on it's official website.

"The IOF should have displayed political courage under such exceptional circumstances" - explain they.

"The race and the orienteering values will be best remembered if the results are overruled and therefore no result appears on the 2009 Relay Prize List" - is France's suggestion.

Read the whole statement on the website of the French Orienteering Federation.
