We study smooth exponentially harmonic maps from a compact, connected, orientable Riemannian manifold M into a sphere S m R m + 1 . Given a codimension two totally geodesic submanifold Σ S m , we show that every nonconstant exponentially harmonic map ϕ : M S m either meets or links Σ . If H 1 ( M , Z ) = 0 then ϕ ( M ) Σ .
