Portugal O-meeting WRE: Maps and Results

pom2

Yet another victory for Thierry Gueorgiou and Simone Niggli in technical Portuguese terrain! This third day of the Portugal O-meeting was the highlight of the races – a fast paced middle distance race with World Ranking status. 6.1 km in 28:41 means that you have to keep full focus all the way.  Gueorgiou and Niggli both won the Portugal O-meeting last year as well.

– Altough some health problems ruining his training week and making him rest on POM’s first day, he started strongly winning yesterday and on today’s WRE he left second place Oleksandr Kratov 1:55 behind. Jonas Gvildys surprisingly took 3rd place leaving behind Adamski in 4th and Fohr in 5th,  the organizers report.

In the womens class, Niggli got a very tough fight for the victory today. Five women within 1 minute – closest to Niggli was Maja Møller Alm, 39 seconds down. Young Tove Alexandersson and Venla Niemi followed one second behind Møller Alm.

Tomorrow is the closing day of Portugal’O’Meeting using the same Arena and a wider map for a closing long distance event.
