WOC Long 2014 Women: The BIG analysis

Svetlana Mironova decides the race by running a technically good race in the first part of the course – and executing the long legs very well. Wyder makes too many mistakes – Alexandersson does not have her normal speed after stomach problems, and also does some small mistakes.

Mistakes are more decisive for the medals than route choices  – although both Wyder and Alexandersson lose more than the time they are behind Mironova on the long leg to control 12 by taking a non-optimal route choice (going left instead of taking the road around – Mironova has however also not picked the best route here).

Mironova makes a good technical race in the first part of the race – and builds up a lead which is large enough to endure some time losses on the last loop

This analysis is made by Jan Kocbach and Stefano Raus. It is based on a shortened version of the analysis written for the online WOC 2014 magazine.

Summary of decisive points
  • Mironova makes a good technical race in the first part of the race – and builds up a lead which is large enough to endure some time losses on the last loop. Alexandersson however comes closer and closer in the end.
  • Alexandersson is probably not 100% fit after her stomach problems – at least she is not as strong as she usually is in the physical parts of the course. A mistake at control 9 and a mistake at the control after the arena passage along with the non-optimal route choice to control 12 costs Alexandersson too much time to take the gold medal with her current shape.
  • Wyder makes a mistake at the second control and loses nearly 1:30. She also loses nearly a minute on the long leg to the 4th control (partly due to wrong routechoice) and again on the long leg to the 12th control due to non-optimal route choice. The rest of the race she has mostly the speed and technique for gold.
WOMEN: S-1

The women’s course starts with four short legs with middle distance characteristics.  The first control is a short, technical control. Wyder starts well – Alexandersson is 14 seconds behind and Mironova  15 seconds behind.  The two Norwegians Rønning Sund and Fasting have slow starts – Fasting losing 17 seconds and Rønning Sund 23 seconds.

Another short, technical control. All medalists do well – but Fasting has an inaccurate direction at the middle of the leg and loses time – 23 seconds to Mironova here. Bobach and Hajanen also lose more than 30 seconds here – tricky start!

42. Haajanen Sofia 9:27 +2:04
WOMEN: 4-5

The long leg to control 5 is very similar to the men’s 4th leg. For the men Fasting’s route was fastest (run by Gueorgiou and Hertner) – whereas Mironova/Alexandersson’s route (run by Lundanes) was similar in time when disregarding the difference in execution of the route by Lundanes versus Gueorgiou. A similar trend is seen for the women. The two different variants are within 8 seconds.

Wyder and Rønning use more road (similar to Jerker Lysell in the men’s class), and Wyder loses nearly a minute while Rønning loses nearly 2 minutes (see illustration for Rønning Sund).  The reason for Wyder’s choice might be the big mistake on the control before – to gain some security again. Some of Wyder’s time loss is  out of the control – it looks like she first wants to run the alternative of Fasting; it could however also be due to a wrong direction out of the control.

At this point in the course Rønning Sund is 2:08 behind Mironova – after 11.0 km at the end of the race this is only 46 seconds more. Thus a bad start for the Norwegian. Note that  Bobach loses 3 minutes with a more direct route which has far too much climb.

This is again a quite short, easy leg – but many women do mistakes here. Mironova loses 42 seconds to Alexandersson and 35 seconds to Wyder – her second biggest time loss. Now Alexandersson is in the lead for the first and last time in the competition.

Several other women who finish top 10 lose 30 seconds or more.

WOMEN: 8-9

A medium long route choice leg where you can either go direct or use the road to the right. Note that 6 runners are faster than the ones shown here – Ida Bobach being the fastest at 5:23 (20 seconds ahead of Mironova). All these 6 runners run direct with better execution than Mironova. Thus direct is the fastest option – but note how Alexandersson makes a one minute mistake when going direct, losing 1:22 to Bobach.

Fasting chooses a hybrid between direct and right and loses 50 seconds to Mironova and more than a minute to Bobach. Billstam runs direct and makes  a mistake into the control – losing 1:50 on this leg.  Before this control Billstam was in third position – now she falls down to 9th. This was a tricky leg for many runners.

The medalists are now Top 3 in correct order – Mironova ahead of Alexandersson and Wyder (Wigemyr however shares the third place with Wyder at this point in the course).

A short leg which does not give big problems for the top runners – note however how Rønning Sund loses 21 seconds. The GPS of Alexandersson does not work well just here. Tove Alexandersson is now at +34 seconds and still very much in contact with Mironova.

The long leg from 11 to 12 is similar to the men’s long leg to the 15th control, but going the opposite way. This leg however has bigger differences than the men’s, and is in this regard more interesting. The fastest option here is to start following the road and then going straight to the control like Kadan/Jurenikova do. Mironova takes an even safer route – going around to the right – losing only a few seconds to Kadan/Jurenikova. The last climb into the control is very steep and slow on Mironova’s route – and Rønning taking the same route loses 50 seconds on this route.

Alexandersson and Wyder both chose routes to the left which have more climb – this was the course setters favourite. Note however how both Alexandersson and Wyder lose significant time here – 42 seconds and 1:13 respectively. The main reason for the time loss is that it is slow in the middle of the leg (see illustration comparing Wyder and Mironova below) – both due to stones and due to climb.

With this long leg, Mironova is starting to build up a safe gap down to Alexandersson – now at 1:09. Wyder is now at +2:42. Jenzer runs this leg well (following Mironova’s route) and is up in third position overall.

On the way down to the spectator control, there is a leg with some micro routechoice options. The right variant seems faster – Jenzer and Wigemyr both losing 25-40 seconds by going left. However Fasting runs a good time left, so it is only the execution of Wigemyr/Jenzer which is not good enough. With this leg both Jenzer and Wigemyr are on the way out of the fight for medals.

Most runners run around the road here – but Fasting runs straight over the top. Olav Lundanes lost time here in the fight for medals against Hubmann and Gueorgiou – Fasting however has second best split time and beats all the competitors in the top.

Both Alexandersson and Wyder lose time to Mironova here. Both do a mistake into the control – and Mironova is also very strong in the uphill (see illustrations below).

Today’s leg in Route to Christmas is a long leg from the largest individual orienteering ...

  1. Interesting to see how tight it is for posotions 5 through 8 at the end with only seconds between the runners. Gøril Rønning Sund is 8th the 21st control but with a strong finsh ends up in 5th place, even gaining a place from tha last control to finish.

  2. Most of the minute that Rønning Sund loses to Wyder on the 5th (the both run to the left) leg is comes from the difference in route choise at the end of the leg where Wyder runs up to the road while Rønning Sund takes a small path further below.

    Another issue worth mentioning in this respect is the energy saved by running more on road/path. The route to the left may be a minute slower, but saves more energy. Both Rønning Sund and Wyder seem to have strong finishes.
