By winning two gold medals, Switzerland was the main figure of the first day of the European Youth Orienteering Championships EYOC 2013 which starts today in Obidos, Portugal. Beatriz Moreira, placed 9th in W16 Class, was the portuguese's best athlete.
Óbidos was the venue chosen for the “kick off” the European Youth Orienteering Championships EYOC 2013. In a town that has in the chocolate one of its ex-libris, the courses were anything but “sweet” for the 361 athletes participating in the four competition classes. Made of streets and alleys, stairs and corners with much unevenness in the between, the map was a huge headache for the participants, requiring maximum concentration and a continuos focus on the map.
