Olympic Rings at the Olympic Park

There were fantastic performances again from SYO at the British Sprints and Middles last weekend.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park provided an exciting setting for the British Sprint Championships, with most courses visiting the iconic Olympic Rings on their penultimate control in the heats. After successful completion of both heats and finals, 3 SYO members were crowned Sprint champion - Andy Preston M35, Tim Tett M55 and Jenny Peel W45 and there were well deserved podium positions for Robbie Lightfoot M10, Pete Tryner M40, Martin Ward M45 and Freya Tryner W10.

On Saturday 15th May SYO hosted the Yorkshire heat of the Yvette Baker Trophy at Sandall Beat. The YBT is an inter-club competition for juniors named after Britain’s first orienteering world champion. Doncaster Racecourse provided an excellent base and the wood was gloriously runnable, producing some very fast times.
