  • Interview with Roberta Falda, Event Director WTOC 2014
    Star Sporting Merit and the Gold Medal at the Athletic Value Can you explain to us what are the main tasks of the Event Director in an event like the WTOC 2014 In addition to Event Director I am also a member of the CO so some tasks overlap Regarding the WTOC I would say that it substantially consists in supervising the whole organization of the event from the technical part to the logistics through IT and Media The work was carried out and takes place in several stages The initial one four years ago has affected the choice of land choice of technical staff structuring and planning of the work foe the week WTOC Now it is mainly to coordinate the staff the managers of the various sectors to liaise with the offices for the hotel accommodations and with the national teams as well as with the IOF Advisor maintain relationships with local authorities and especially to troubleshoot problems that may occur Basically the Event Director is the tip of the pyramid formed by the many actors who are working with a lot of dedication for the success of the event and then watches them all from high but at the same time has o be a constant and reliable reference for everyone Can you give us a quick overview of the types of areas chosen for the WTOC 2014 The event takes place on different terrains and areas according both to territorial jurisdictions and type of land The areas involve two regions and we have tried to be balanced to ensure the same visibility and importance to both we ll give the athletes different soils experiences and different tracks Valsugana Lavarone Plateau Asiago Plateau Athletes will enjoy a beautiful pine forest and a city park at the TempO scheduled in Alberè of Tenna for the qualification and for the final in Hapsburg Park of Levico The two PreO races will take place at the spectacular flat Millegrobbe in the first day and will end on the complicated terrain of Campomuletto The medals of the two specialties will be awarded one in the Trentino region and one in the Veneto region I believe that in a good World Championships the best athlete wins on lands of different types but also with tracks made with different techniques at the same time with fair play for all participants I think that it will be so in Italy Do you think the WTOC 2014 will be useful to talk about the orienteering culture in a country like Italy where unfortunately it s not very well known yet It s so hard to get attention from the media I believe we will not be able to have sufficient visibility throughout Italy but surely it increases the value of the orienteering sport in Italy will be increased and will gain more dignity The World Championships will be a great way to known the area we have many foreign visitors and there are many viewers
