IOF's første sportsdirektør er en god ven af dansk orientering...

På IOF's kongres i Århus vedtog medlemslandene et ny vision og handlingsplan for det internationale arbejde i de kommende år.

Som en del af denne plan er der i budget 2007-2008 skabt plads til en ny stilling som IOF "Sports Direktor".

Stillingen er nu besat af en af os meget bekendt person. Björn Persson, Sverige. Björn var vores IOF advisor på WOC 2006 og havde som sådan sin del af æren for det flotte arrangement. Et arrangement der løftede både international og dansk orientering til nye standarder for, hvad der kan lykkes.

Vi ser frem til samarbejdet Björn !
