WOC 2011 Long Qual: Maps and Results

Gueorgiou

Thierry Gueorgiou and the other French men set the standard with extremely strong races in the long distance qualification today. Three French heat winners among the men of three possible – Gueorgiou, Philippe Adamski and Francois Gonon. In the womens class Dana Brozkova, Minna Kauppi and Signe Søes won their heats.

The runners were met by tricky orienteering – and longer winning times than expected – especially among the men. Gueorgiou was the only one close to the expected time with 63 minutes – winning his heat with 6 minutes.

– One minute lost on one control in a slope…  I was passing a bit too high in the slope. My goal is to run full speed for the final on Wednesday, so I tried today to save some energy, the King of Middle distance said after his great run.

– Being 4 minutes ahead today doesn’t mean much because runners are not pushing maximum speed.

– Which are my biggest opponents for the final? The French runners are ready, but there can be at least 10 other runners fighting for the podium so it will be an exicting battle to come. Tomorrow i’ll try to go faster in the beginning of the Middle qualification, to get a good speed feeling in the forest, and taking it easy in the end if everything goes well.

Olav Lundanes – the reigning world champion – finished second in his heat.

– It went well, but it was a though race,  Lundanes said after his second place – 55 seconds behind Francois Gonon.
