WOC 2009 Long: Map and Results

Double for Switzerland in todays long distance! Simone Niggli and Daniel Hubmann both won clear victories in todays though long distance in Hungary. Silver medals went to the two other big profiles of this world championships: Marianne Andersen and Thierry Gueorgiou.

Simone Niggli is back in the absolute top again with her gold medal in the long distance today. She caught Minna Kauppi quite early in the course – just before the butterflies – and after the “spreading” in the butterflies they were together again. They run together for the remainder of the course – and came to the finish as number one and two. Marianne Andersen – who run alone all of the race – came in and won another silver medal for her big collection.

Daniel Hubmann took a medal in all disciplines in this world championships – very impressive. Hubmann looked tired at the relay, and many therefore did not count him among the absolute favourites at this last race in the world championships. Hubmann however showed that he is the strongest orienteer in the world now. – It was a perfect race, a very happy Hubmann said after the race.
