The last weeks have been quite busy with a lot of school work. Last week I finally delivered my master thesis, so now I am a Master of Technology after almost 9 years of studies at NTNU. Geomatics
is the field I have been studying, and the subject of my master work was “Correlation analysis of real time GPS data”.
But I have also spent time on orienteering training and local competitions. Two weeks ago the Norwegian National Team had a Training Camp in Trondheim as preparation for WOC 2010
. We also participated in the 3 days competition Trondheim Open
organized by my club Wing OK.
Fridays Sprint was held on a brand new map around Rosenborg’s football stadium Lerkendal. I thought my race went well, and I finished on the best time. But I was disqualified because I had punched a wrong control before my 7th control, and passed the 7th control on the map with a few meters without punching it. Jon Pedersen won the race. Results
On Saturday’s Middle distance I did a good race, except to the 3rd control where I lost almost 1 minute. My result was a 4th place, 39 seconds behind Anders Nordberg. Results
Even if I was disqualified in the Sprint I was able to run Sunday’s Chasing start. But I lost 3 minutes to the winning time of the sprint, and was starting as 14th runner, 2.34 behind Audun Weltzien. My race went well, and I climbed to a 5th place, 2.28 behind Francois Gonon. My only big mistake was to the 14th control, where I lost 1 minute on a bad route choice. Results
