Council meeting, Day Two

The IOF Council meeting in Edinburgh continued today.

One of the topics discussed at the meeting was the World Ranking review. Mike Dowling, the Council member responsible for the project, says: “In order to understand where the deficiencies lie in the current system, we are doing a detailed analysis of scorings of the last two years. Subject to the analysis, we intend to provide a close to final solution to the World Ranking system at the Presidents’ Conference in July. We look forward to hear the comments from them.”

About the WOC qualification model that was discussed yesterday Dowling says: “We have a General Assembly decision from 2012 that sets boundaries for the new model. For example, the qualification races for middle and long distance must be removed. We read the hearing replies from the national federations, as well as the Foot Orienteering Commission’s input very carefully when amending the WOC qualification document. Seven out of twenty federations suggested that we should hold a qualification race just before the WOC week, but it was not something the Council felt it could support. However, the 500 World Ranking points limit was removed, so now every country can have at least one runner in each final. That is a good improvement!”

The IOF Council meeting concluded on Saturday. The next Council meeting will be held in conjunction with the World Orienteering Championships in Vuokatti, Finland, in July.
