Five Winning Students have been called up to the senior GB orienteering squad for 2019.

University of Edinburgh scholars, Alex Carcas, Matthew Fellbaum, Sasha Chepelin and graduate, Jennifer Ricketts, have all been selected alongside Heriot-Watt University athlete, Jonathan Crickmore.

Fellbaum has been rewarded for his silver at the Junior World Championships with a place in his first senior squad, whilst Carcas will also make his debut at the top level in the coming season.

With the International calendar seeing some significant changes, moving to a forest-only World Championships in 2019 followed by a sprint World Championships in 2020, there will be opportunities for athletes focussed on both or either discipline to shine in 2019.
