Report of the Championship

In this championship, there were some surprises. Teams who played the last year for the medals at the Open Nordic Championships for Juniors (ONCJ) this time had nothing to do with the medals. Not surprising was the strong showing of the Colombian Team. They confidently won all the games and have deserved this championship won for the first time.

The Norwegians women put through as expected.

The Championship had been transmitted via Internet. Spectators were registered from many European countries but also from Colombia, Australia and the United States.
The XII. UWR OECJ will be held in 2016. Norway is keen to align this Championship.
