The opening ceremony for O-Ringen was
this afternoon, which means that years of preparations has come to an end. This is the sixth time O-Ringen is in Dalarna, and the second time in Sälen.
O-Ringen 2016 has the theme dream - dream orienteering, dream terrain and dream living. There is reason to believe that many of them who are here also were here in 2008, the first time O-Ringen was held in Sälen. The success in Sälen 2008 lead to a longing for a rerun.
- The organizers are happy that so many competitors will participate in this amazing competition and everything around it. This says Jimmy Birklin, secretary general for O-Ringen 2016.
The expectations for the week are high. Things are going according to the plans and so far it seems like the weather gods are with us this year as well!
The dream orienteering can begin!
