Contest for rogaining fans and spectators! Predict the winners of the 8th World Rogaining Championships and win a prize! Participation in the contest is open to all, the WRC competitors may also take part in this contest.

This is the task - predict the first three teams (gold, silver and bronze medal) in categories MO, XO, WO! To enter the contest, send an e-mail to [email protected] indicating the ID numbers of the best teams in the following order – Class: gold medal, silver medal, bronze medal.

Tragic in sporting terms was coined to describe some fans of the sport of cricket. Australia's imediate past Prime Minister answered to the term cricketing tragic with some joy!?
