EOC Middle Qualification: Map and Results


[Updated Friday evening: All men into final, only top 17 women] Heat winners were Daniel Hubmann (SUI), Gernot Kerschbaumer (AUT), Timo Sild (EST), Helena Jansson (SWE), Mari Fasting (NOR) and Signe Søes (DEN). [Note! Results are unofficial, and according to @NOF_orientering 6 nations have protested – claim three controls are wrongly placed]

According to @NOF_Orientering the protest will be considered in time for the team leader meeting this evening. Then official results will also be available. No official information from the organizer or from IOF through webpage or Twitter account so far.

Update Friday evening (from the IOF):

After yesterday’s European Orienteering Championships middle distance qualification race there were several complaints about the controls. After checking the controls in the terrain, the organiser concluded that one control indeed was in the wrong place (30 meters from the right place). The other control was in the right place, but the map was not completely accurate there. The organiser therefore decided to let the competitors (men) in the heat that was affected by the misplaced control to go to the final, but then the French team made a protest against this and demanded that all men in all heats should be in the final. The jury has considered this today, and decided that for the sake of fairness, all men from all three qualification heats will be allowed to run the final on Monday. The women’s qualification results stand as they were yesterday, and no extra runners are allowed in the final.

JWOC 2016 Middle: Maps and Results

Another Swiss day at the Junior World Orienteering Championship at the middle distance: Gold for ...

12 comments

  1. I am just happy that Orienteering is not more media sport. In my opinion it is just a shame that there is no official information! Thanks WoO and NOF for at least some information. (And if there where really some wrong placed controls, we should really be happy that orienteering is not much in media, we are starting to make fools out of our sport!). Disappointed..

  2. Vinogradov Mike

    In Valentin Novikovs opinion, controls #9, 14, and probably #20 were not fully correct placed. I have not been in the forest and I dont know the true situation: may be the reason is in bad quality of map?

  3. Vinogradov Mike

    I saw Oleksandr Kratov Tiomila long night, last weekend World Cup event, and many other excellent O-races. He is really good – especially at Portugal terrains. And in situation when such a top-runner is outside of final A I have to ask: may be the reason is in terrain/map?

    And I have another important question: what should we expect from tomorrow race? I guess it would be same terrain, same mapping standard (even worse in 1:15000) and same persons to put out control flags.

    Cross my fingers with hopes for the best.

  4. If it is proven as a fact that Control 101 (or any other) was indeed at the wrong place (and I would certainly consider 30 metres to be a significant distance and meet the definition of ‘wrong’); then the only logical, professional, and fair thing to do is to void the course. If the consequence to that is to have all starters in that heat compete in the final, so be it. There are ways to accommodate that. Is it a perfect solution? Of course not – the only perfect solution would be to use a time machine and go back and correct the control placing.
    If a formal complaint must be made by one athlete to trigger an independent review, so be it, but once the fact of the wrong location is independently verified, no further action by any athlete should be required, and the solution (void the course) is a no-brainer. It could be ridiculous – if there are 97 starters, do 97 people have to make a protest?
    The situation can be described as: For the period of time between when the course was open and when it was closed, there was required to be a control at “Point A”. In the case of the recent race in Spain it was not there because it had been removed. In the case of the race in Portugal it was not there because it was never put there in the first place. But there is no material difference between the two situations.
    If orienteering wants to be taken “seriously” on the world sporting stage, we are doing ourselves a disservice by not making the hard choices that are required (i.e. void the course and deal with the consequences) and are instead scrambling around dreaming up bizarre interpretations or solutions in order to “salvage” a list of results.

    • I’d say that would be very unfair towards the runners in all other heats. So following your lead, my only conclusion would be to let all runners in all heats run the A-final on Monday. So I guess if that is technically feasible, that might very well be the conclusion. That will be the least unfair solution in my opinion (although far from a perfect one).

      • I do not necessarily disagree with you Jan, but as I said I do not think there is a ‘perfect’ solution. I would say to those in other heats: Nothing is being taken away from you, by letting these people in the final, because it is also a fact that you did not qualify in your race which did not have controls in the wrong place. So they are not ‘losing’ anything, it’s just the others might be ‘gaining’ something, but that is justified by the wrong control placement.

        • I think as you Ross, let all A-Heat runners start in the final would be the best solution. (If there would be more days between the races also a repeat of the qualifier for the A-heat would be a possibility. But not now.)

  5. Australia, Canada etc .. non European-Countries are allowed to run?

  6. In my view it is a genious IOF plan for this EOC – to make a mess of all qualifications and thus promote the new WOC programme without long an middle qialification races
