Easter Orienteering: Maps and Results

jkstart

[Updated with NZ champs maps] JK in Great Britain, Kolmårdsmedeln in Sweden and New Zealand Championships are some of the events which have been held these Easter holidays. Read on for results and courses. Above a snapshot of the first part of the JK long distance is shown.

With the World Championships in Scotland this year, the participation at the traditional JK Easter races in Great Britain was larger than usually this year.

Kyburz and Gueorgiou on top again

In the men’s class Matthias Kyburz shows that he is in excellent spring form – winning both the sprint (together with Fraser) and middle distance – and finishing 3rd in the long distance. Thierry Gueorgiou used the opportunity to show that he is back after his January injury with a clear victory on Sunday’s long distance – but more than a minute mistake on the middle distance is not up to the French runner’s usual standard – only 6th on the middle distance for Gueorgiou. The British athletes showed that they have prepared well for 2015 with Scott Fraser winning the sprint (together with Kyburz) and Graham Gristwood in 2nd at the middle distance.

Cat Taylor showing World Championships shape already

In the women’s class British Cat Taylor shows great shape – winning the long distance with more than 3 minutes – and finishing 5th on the middle and 2nd on the sprint. The Danish women again show strong team results; Emma Klingenberg wins the sprint and Ida Bobach wins the middle distance. Swiss Julia Gross also impressed with all three races within Top 4 – with the best results in the long distance with a 2nd place. Judith Wyder (Switzerland) did not deliver her best results this weekend – losing time both running and orienteering wise.

Bergman going strong

Another notable individual race this weekend is Kolmårdsmedeln (with many of the Kolmårdskavlen runners present) – won by Gustav Bergman and Helena Jansson – both show great form this weekend. Finally there has been some nice racing in New Zealand with the NZ championships sprint, middle and long.

    Looks like that was written by a bot…

    • :) Testing some automatic split analysis stuff, but not really a bot… The interesting thing is to get out key info which you don’t see directly from the results, i.e. who had potential to win and where/how the race was decided. Not sure I’ll ever get there, but I’ve got some stuff going which is beyond that simple intro there…

  3. Vinogradov Mike

    I am really shocked that IOF-ranking is still missing for these races. Thats something wrong! Definitely, IOF have to learn how to work without delays.

    • Results are in Eventor, so it looks like this is some technical issue with getting results from Eventor to ranking.orienteering.org?

      • Vinogradov Mike

        I have no idea. But for me it is clear sign of low professional level. I saw in 2015 that sometimes delays with IOF ranking points was more then 2 weeks after completion of competitions!!

        • Mike, why are you so concerned? It is just an insignificant technical problem. Really, there is no media or others who are desperately waiting to see WR points. They will fix it sooner or later but don’t expect better WR system in near feature. It seems that more than this is not an option because WR is not very high on a priority list. The whole value of competition system (WR points) has almost no value today. Do you know anyone within the system who is keen to make a push for WR? Only a better support and timely results IT processes are not enough.

          When you mentioned “low professional level” this suggests that someone must be responsible for whole WR and for each part of the system. I read in FOC minutes that within the IOF the person in charge for WR is Vincent Frey FRA. It is not clear who is responsible for what par of processes but I believe that for daily technical/operational tasks (IOF office), IT tasks and bugs (Eventor/contractor) and for rules and importance of WR (Vincent).

          • Vinogradov Mike

            In Russian O-team your high position in IOF World Ranking is a main criteria for WOC-selection (both for sprint and for long/middle). Also good starting position at WOC gives this year a really good advantage. All things together push runners to hunting for IOF ranking points. But right now it is really tricky to understand your current position (and ranking level of competitions) with such a huge delay problem.

          • But you can get high points only at few events per year. Most of the WRE events are local event where points are very low and have no meaning. From IOF perspective forcing runners to hunt WR points should not be the main objective of WR or the only one advantage left within the system. In my opinion it is also wrong that WR points has so big importance on WOC starting list if we all know that WCup and WR events are not a priority events among the majority of best athletes. WOC starting list could be based also on coutry quotas based on previous WOCs. It would be more fair to all who cant participate at these high points events through the year and the system would be align with the WOC qualification system. WR should be about better promotion of sport and athletes.

          • Vinogradov Mike

            Samo! Actually it is possible to improve your position in strong WRE. In fact most tricky thing is that it is impossible to identify strong WRE. Sometimes runners earn 1400 for victory, sometimes even with huge margin winner gets just 1200-1300. Runners got small points this year from Portuguse WRE. In my opinion it is necessary to have on-line table with potential WRE points in IOF eventor: when some strong runner is making entry then every one can see new estimations about WRE-points. Then runners can prioritize limited resources for strong WRE. Otherwise it is not clear about any competitions: are Silva League-2015 (Danish Spring/POM/JK/etc.) gonna be strong enough to earn 1400 points or not?..

          • Exactly! You are talking about levels. In tennis you know exactly how many points each event is worth. WR failed here. There is a fixed winner points for WOC, WC and ROC no matter who enter the event and a scale from 800-1400 for all other events. This is a main problem because no one can predict the outcome. A good system has a fixed table for all levels or statistical formula for all levels as we had in old system. As it stands today we have two different system. The easy solution would be to have also fixed winner points for all local WR events. Like in tennis.

            Let’s say a basic local WR event is worth 1300 points and if organizer has a prize money up to 1000 eur for best six runners this local event would be worth 1350 and with even better prize money this local event could rise its points up to WOC level 1500 points. This would be transparent system for organizer and also for runners and good for promotion of sport.

          • Vinogradov Mike

            @Samo: I agree with you. I did not know about such system in tennis. But it sounds rational! Can you right a few words about possible solution in Orienteering, please? I will published in http://vinogradovcoach.blogspot.ru/ or may be Jan will published in World of O.

            @Jan: What do you think?

            If we start discussion then we will have a chance to promote this idea to IOF. I think it is not so difficult to implement some-kind of online score system inot Eventor. And I think that it should be helpful for Orienteering’s promotion.

  4. Scott Fraser was equal first in the JK Sprint

    • Thanks! Fixed that now.

      • Still there at the top …
        “The British athletes showed that they have prepared well for 2015 with Scott Fraser in 2nd at the sprint and Graham Gristwood in 2nd at the middle distance.”

        Semi-automated is a great idea though, particularly if it means more detailed coverage/analysis of more events :-)
