What happens when athletes of different clubs living in the same village regularly meet in the bus or by a beer? Orienteering is most obviously the topic of conversation… it’s where the idea was born of inviting the O-family to our own living room. Out of passion, a handful of athletes will turn Bremgarten into the centre of the Swiss orienteering community for a weekend, in collaboration with the local orienteering clubs of Bern and Burgdorf.
The organizing team of the national O-Weekend Bremgarten 2022 is composed of experienced Bremgarten residents and athletes attached to the village in different ways.
According to our principle of “today’s world champions are organizing for tomorrow’s world champions”, current Sprint orienteering world champion and Bremgarten resident Daniel Hubmann (picture) and Simone Niggli, 23-fold world champion and the worlds’ best orienteering runner ever, are significantly involved in the organization.
