Long_JWOC2014_MEN

[Including full medal overview] 5 nations won gold medals at JWOC 2014 – Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland and New Zealand – Sweden dominating the championships with 5 gold medals and 4 further medals. Another four nations won medals – Czech Republic, Italy, Poland and Denmark.

The men’s individual races were won by runners from three different nation

Sweden showed again that they have very strong junior orienteers – capable of performing on top level in very different terrain and in all disciplines. The most dominant athlete of the Junior World Championships in Bulgaria in 2014 was Swedish Sara Hagström with medals in all disciplines – of these all were gold except for the long distance which Hagström lost with 3 seconds to Gunvor Hov Høydal (Norway).

The men’s individual races were won by runners from three different nations; New Zealand (Tim Robertson, sprint), Finland (Miika Kirmula, middle) and Sweden (Anton Johansson, long). Sweden won the relay just as for the women.

See the complete medal overview below – and top 10 results for each discipline below the medal overview. Links to full results are included at the bottom of the article.

Terrain and courses

The terrain chosen for JWOC 2014 was very varied – and each well suited for the discipline (the exception might have been the sprint which was on the easy side). The long distance offered some very interesting route choice legs – along with some other technical challenges for the athletes. The middle distance was very technical in a terrain dominated by many contour details. The relay was easier technical – well suited for a relay. Maps for each discipline are included below in the discipline-wise results/maps overviews.

Sprint

Sprint_JWOC2014_MEN

This shows how important the mental part of the equation is in a JWOC race

Although the JWOC sprint can be said to be one of the most open races in the Junior World Orienteering Championships – with all JWOC participants competing in one race without qualification race – all medalists in JWOC 2014 sprint were medalists from JWOC races in earlier years. This shows how important the mental part of the equation is in a JWOC race.

The men’s title was taken by Tim Robertson, New Zealand, bronze medallist in the corresponding race last year, and the women’s went to Sara Hagström, Sweden who beat last year’s champion Heidi Mårtensson (Norway) by 5 seconds. All three women’s medallists are previous medal-winners at JWOC; Sara Hagström took silver in last year’s Long race whilst bronze medallist in this race, Miri Thrane Ødum, Denmark was Middle distance champion last year. Sweden finished with three runners in the top six in the results. In the men’s race Tim Robertson was victorious by 6 seconds, with Piotr Parfianowicz, Poland, Long Distance champion at JWOC last year, in second place. Third was yet another name already well-known in JWOC circles: Anton Johansson, Sweden who was silver medallist in last year’s Middle race. [Read full story at orienteering.org]

    That’s part of the game. There is qualification to decide startlist and if you miss 6 minutes in the first 2 control i will not hang trusting 100%

  3. dude says:

    Scalet just realized every followers dream: caught faster runner after mistake and hung on for dear life :) He might be the next Mamlejev! Props for Niemi for running it to the max despite of big mistakes.
