gRaeme Farrand of the Waterloo Warriors is the only athlete to represent Canada at the 2022 FISU World University Championships held in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland August 17-21.

Farrand, originally from Hamilton, Ontario, took great advantage of the trails and forests around Hamilton to fall in love with the sport of orienteering.

As a member of the Waterloo Cross Country Team, Farrand trained for the Canadian National Orienteering Team, competing at two Junior World Orienteering Championships in 2018 in Hungary and 2019 in Denmark.

The maths major is also a member of the Hamilton-based DontGetLost (DGL) orienteering club, where he got his first taste of orienteering at a young age in the youth program.

Farrand also competed at the Canadian Orienteering Championships in July and won bronze in the long distance category.

As the only Canadian athlete to compete at the World University Championships, Farrand will be looking to end the summer season on a high, bringing home the gear on the international stage.
