BJ to run for UK

Show Profile  A1 Posted: 17 October 2005, 7:30 AM  
BJ has just announced that he won't be running for AUS anymore - as of 1-1-2006 he's going to run for Britain (he has dual citizenship)

What a patriot! Knowing BJ a little the $ involved to help him fulfill his orienteering addiction were prob the deciding factor...

He probably also recognised that the top results achieved by Hanny and Troy at WOC were merly a shiny new facade on the crumbling Australian Elite scene returning to mediocrity.

While BY probably realises that he was, until the announcement, part of this crumble (be it the brown sugar in the topping) he is aware of Great Britains mediocrity, given their resources and opportunities and plans to move in and scoop up the cash.

God Speed BJ. Kia Kaha.

Now with Grant Bluett retired and Shepo returning his regression back into a fat bastard, all we need is Troy to finally decide he needs to do something else with his life and Hanny to discover more glory somewhere else and we have those Aussies nailed.

After a brief 10 year hiatus the rightful scene of things is returned.Only Julian Dent will stand between NZ Orienteering and Australasian dominance.

Funny how it is on the Oz website, but not on the British Website or their Maptalk equivalent.

Careful Jamie. A few Poms read this forum. Suggesting GB are medicore - I suggest you check out the results of the last round of the World Cup.

"BY"? Is that a combination of BJ and KY?

Get Troy on the piss. Find Hanny a boyfriend. Mission accomplished.

Have a look at this

plus BJ has just been named in the GBR squad for 2006
under "BOF 2006 Squad announced" look at

"Medal & top 10 results at the World Championships continue to be our priority. It is important therefore to give our best athletes a ‘clear run’ into major events and we have decided that we will pre select some athletes for the European Championships in Estonia. The following athletes have demonstrated top 10/medal potential and they have been selected for the team:

David Brickhill-Jones, Matt Crane, Jamie Stevenson, Sarah Rollins and Helen Winskill. "
