The final race in the 2017 World Schools Orienteering Championships took place at Ficuzza, near Palermo in Sicily, on Thursday with medal winning performances from both the English and Scottish teams.

The Middle Distance race was again very technical, in similarly challenging terrain to the Long race. Both nations had individual medal winners.

Schools M2 - Silver - Felix Lunn - Kenilworth School (England)
Schools M2 - Bronze - Grant Mcmurtrie - Aboyne Academy (Scotland)

Team results are based on the combined results of the Long and Middle races, with three teams making it onto the podium:

Schools W2 - Silver - Ulverston Victoria High School - Jessica Ensoll, Lucy Gibson, Eleanor Simmonds, Merryn Stangroom and Alice Wood, moving up from 4th place to within three minutes of the winners from Spain.

Schools M2 - Bronze - Kenilworth School - Nathan Chapple, Oliver Flippance, Felix Lunn, Oliver Lunn and Cameron Williams-Stein , maintaining their team position from Monday's Long Race behind the winners from the Czech Republic and Silver medallists Italy.
