WOC 2006 – photos by Martin Schwarz

The World Orienteering Championships (WOC) 2006 were held from 2006-07-28 through 2006-08-06 in and around Århus, Denmark. Meike and I have had the opportunity of accompanying the event as accredited photographers for the German O federation.

While most of my pictures of the German runners have already been published on orientierungslauf.de, here are some more extensive galleries of athletes from all nations:
