"29.10.00: Park World Tour - Orienteering: Yes to PWT in 2001

With unanimous support from the world's best orienteers, the Park World Tour Council tonight announced that there will be a PWT series also in
2001.
- All the positive feedback we have got during the last eight days on the Tour proves that we have to move on, says PWT President Anders
Vestergård.The planning for the 2001 Tour has now started, and the goal is to present the programme in January next year.


Continuous development
- We will continue to develop the orienteering arrangements together with runners, media, sponsors and strong local organisers. Park racing is also a great way to spread the sport to new countries and continents, and we want to keep up this work - for the best of orienteering as a whole, says Anders Vestergård.

Last Tuesday, Thailand was added to the international orienteering map,with a PWT stage as the first world class race to be held in Bangkok. On Saturday, the elite runners experienced the most thrilling atmosphere ever
felt at an o-race, with 20,000 spectators seated in the Hongkou Football Stadium in Shanghai - and a very challenging course in the surrounding Lu
Xun Park.

2000 Final ahead
On Tuesday, 31 October, the PWT 2000 Final will be held in the beautiful Horticultural Garden of Kunming, China, where the top-orienteers and the
PWT crew arrived on Sunday night.

The final race will start at 10.00 am local time, to be finished at noon (= 05.00 am CET).
