Hi, my name is Cooper Horley, I'm 16 years old and from Northern Sydney. I have been given the honour to represent Australia at the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Romania in July.


I began orienteering when I was 11 in February 2018 when a local club event was held at my school and I loved the mental and physical aspects that are fused together. I have since competed for NSW as part of the schools team that travelled to the Australian Schools Orienteering Championships in 2019 and 2022 (20' and 21' were cancelled due to COVID-19) and was selected for the Australian Schools Honour Team last year due to my results in the carnival. I have also competed for the NSW Stingers in the National Orienteering League, where I have won 2 individual events in the M20 Elites and placed 3rd in the Oceania Sprint Orienteering Championships for M20E.


The Junior World Orienteering Championships are being held from the 3rd-8th July in Baia Mare, Romania and consist of 5 events; sprint, sprint relay, middle, long and forest relay all of which I will be competing in. Athletes are only eligible if they are born in 2003 or later and I will be one of the youngest competitors in the field. The funds I am raising are to cover the multitude of costs associated with the trip such as flights, accomodation, uniform and equipment.


My goal is to continue representing Australia in the years to come and raise the profile of orienteering in Australia. Orienteering as a sport has minimal government funding and therefore the majority of costs involved in competing at such events need to be covered by the individual athletes and their families. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
