Predictions, Comments & Results
The World Orienteering Championships 2018 are about to get underway with there being some massive races where the winners are far from certain, therefore many predictions are still to be made. For us there is only one event where there is an almost certain winner – such as Tove Alexandersson in the women’s Long Distance race – but most others should be closer contested events.

Alongside this, it will show the most voted for winners and give a real-time overview to who is predicted to be the most likely winners in each discipline.

Men's Forest Relay
My Prediction: SWEDEN vs NORWAY
Here could be a duel between Sweden and Norway. Both have strong and stable runners for all three legs, who will take fastest route choices and manage the race with the least mistakes.
Women's Forest Relay
My Prediction: SWIZERLAND vs SWEDEN
Women’s Forest Relay champions title we consider to be closely decided between Switzerland and Sweden. The decisive factor will be the runner of the last leg, therefore we give Sweden a slight advantage, if Tove will run the last leg.
