Following up the post on the mistakes from the NOC Long distance, we could not just ignore this huge mistake from the last leg in todays NOC Relay. Norway 3 and Finland 2 completely lost control on the way to the second last control – getting far off to the south (see above).
This years NOC Relay had short technical legs with a lot of gaffling, and the technical orienteering became very important. It you have not taken a look at the Tracking from the NOC Relay yet, I’d advice you to do so. In addition to the mistake above, you can see a lot of top-class orienteering – and also see how the top-orienteers make mistakes under pressure when pushing each other to high speed.
Using the links below, you can replay the complete last leg from start until finish, and get a feeling for the excitement in the relay:
- Tracking Replay – NOC Relay will be available online using a java-applet in your browser [Link corrected]
- Even better performance is possible by downloading the GPSseuranta2-program, and loading the tracking from there. At 14:00 CET, the Tracking replay in the browser was net yet available, whereas tracking in the GPSseuranta2-program was available.
