Map from disappointing WOC Sprint
Map from Sprint Final WOC 2007, Ukraine Yesterday’s Sprint Final in the World Orienteering Championships in Ukraine was a disappointment for me. Thierry Gueorgiou won by less than one second down to Matthias Merz, while I came at 14th place, almost one minute behind.

I had problems to find the paths to the 2nd and 3rd control, and got stuck in some nettles. To the 5th control I took a very bad route-choice, and lost 30 seconds compared the route-choice to the right. Not so easy to that I should loose so much time, but the little path at the last part of the leg was really bad. At the 5th control I was already 49 seconds behind Merz, and it did not help that I was running OK for the rest of the course.

I am reserve for tomorrow and will be well prepared for Sunday’s Sprint Final. The team-order is Holger, Anders and Audun for the men and Ingunn Weltzien, Marianne Andersen and Anne Margrethe Hausken for the women.

Map from the Middle Qualification
Map from Middel Qual WOC 2007, Ukraine Today’s Middle Qualification went very bad for me, and I did not qualified for Wednesday’s Final. I did several mistakes at around one minute each, and came on 20th place in my heat, 7 minutes behind the winner Thierry Gueorgiou. Results

The terrain was very diffuse with much vegetation, and I had problems to hold the right direction in to the controls. I had hoped the terrain should be faster with better visibility, like the terrains we have trained in (like Ukraine Champs Middle
Qual and Final from this spring). All the other Norwegians qualified for the Final. Now I am just going to relax, train easy, watch the other Finals and look forward to Sundays Sprint Final.

Qualified for the Sprint Final
Map from Sprint Qual WOC 2007, Ukraine Today’s Sprint Qualification went OK for me, and I qualified for next Sundays final with an 8th place in my heat, 47 seconds behind the outstanding Thierry Gueorgiou. My race was not so good, and I lost around 15 seconds when I first visited a wrong control near my 2nd control and also lost some seconds a few other places. But the most important was that all Norwegians qualified for the final. Tomorrow it is Long Qualification, while I am going to run the Model Event for Mondays Middle Qualification.

2nd place in WC-5 Sprint in O-ringen
 Map WC-5 Sprint Wednesday the last World Cup race during O-ringen took place, with a Sprint in Mjölby. I did a very good race, and came at 2nd place, only 5 seconds behind the WC-leader Thierry Gueorgiou. Emil Wingsted followed only one second behind me.

The race was close to the O-camp, and several thousand spectators made a great atmosphere around the race. It was again a good day for the Norwegian team, with Marianne Andersen at 2nd place. Simone Niggli won with huge margin, as so often before.

This was clearly my best international performance this year, and a nice feedback for the last weeks of training before WOC in Ukraine in August. Now I will have some easy day’s home, before I go to Beitostølen for training in the Norwegian mountains.

 Map WC-4 Middle Today the 2nd race in O-ringen took place, with Middle distance for the World Cup classes. Thierry Gueorgiou, who was not running yesterday, won with huge margin to Anders Nordberg, who also was 2nd yesterday. I did several smaller mistakes, and finished at 19th place, 4 min behind Thierry’s fantastic time.

It was a good day for the Norwegian men, with all 7 runners in the A-final among the 25 best. In the women’s class Tatyana Riabkina won in front of Heli Jukkola and Anne Margrethe Hausken. Tomorrow it is sprint in Mjöly, the last WC-event during O-ringen and the distance that suits me best.

The two next loops went better, and I ran out on the last loop 4 minutes behind Audun and the other runners in the lead. The long last loop went well, and I could finish as the first runner in a big group, at 12th place, 4.50 behind Audun.
