BIG GPS & Splits Analysis of WOC 2015 Sprint Men

WOC2015SprintM_03_img_C

Yannick Michiels, Daniel Hubmann, Kris Jones and Martin Hubmann were all only control away from beating the eventual winner Jonas Leandersson. A sprint is however all about keeping concentration from start to finish.

The World Championships Sprint in Forres offered courses with few complex routechoice legs – the main challenge was to navigate safely through the narrow alleys of the small Scottish town – and to avoid doing any mistakes on the relatively easy legs. Compared to what many athletes had prepared themselves for – a complex sprint with artificial boundaries producing interesting routechoices – this sprint must be said to be quite uninteresting with very small time differences between the different alternatives. Therefore we also got a very tight sprint with small timegaps.

The man who mastered this best was double European Champion sprint Jonas Leandersson (Sweden, photo below). Yannick Michiels (Belgium) had a clear lead and was seemingly on the way to victory before he lost concentration for a moment and ran into a blind alley.

Martin Hubmann (silver) had a steady race without mistakes – enough for silver, but not really in the fight for gold. Jerker Lysell (Sweden) had a similar technical race to Martin Hubmann’s, but was a bit too slow.

Daniel Hubmann and Kris Jones were the two other runners who had the speed and technique to beat Leandersson in the sprint in Forres, but both made crucial routechoice mistakes on one leg, losing 11 and 16 seconds, respectly. For both this was more than they were behind the winner Leandersson in the end.

Results and course/GPS-tracking

Looking at the results, this was a very tight sprint with Top 10 within 14 seconds. The small time gaps are due to the easy routechoices – you could not lose a lot of time here. As you will see in the analysis below, there were three runners with the speed to win today: Jonas Leandersson, Yannick Michiels and Daniel Hubmann.

1. Jonas Leandersson Sweden 13:12 (+0:00)
2. Martin Hubmann Switzerland 13:14 (+0:02)
3. Jerker Lysell Sweden 13:17 (+0:05)
4. Marten B Bostrom Finland 13:20 (+0:08)
4. Yannick Michiels Belgium 13:20 (+0:08)
6. Daniel Hubmann Switzerland 13:21 (+0:09)
6. Andreu Blanes Spain 13:21 (+0:09)
8. Kristian Jones Great Britain 13:25 (+0:13)
8. Soren Bobach Denmark 13:25 (+0:13)
10. Jonas Vytautas Gvildys Lithuania 13:26 (+0:14)

From the start: Michiels on a different level

As expected, Belgian Yannick Michiels, who set an impressive sub 8 minute personal record on 3000 meter last Friday, had another speed than his competitors from the start. Looking at the split time browser for the first part of the race, Michiels has a gap to the rest of the field which increases control by control – meanwhile it is quite tight between the rest of the favourites until Jonas Leandersson speeds up in the middle of the course.

Decision point: Michiels into wrong alley

But then Michiels made a crucial mistake which cost him the victory. Running into a wrong alley on the way to control 14 costs him 13 seconds to the best split time and 12 seconds to Leandersson. After a bitter 4th place with less than 10 seconds up to Jonas Leandersson in the end, this is surely where the race was lost.

Michiels also lost some time to the next control – partly due to falling over a fence; shown spectacularly live on TV – and he had not the same impressive speed in the last part of the course like in the first part. Instead of being faster than his competitors he had approximately the same speed.

Decision point: Daniel Hubmann loses victory chance due to wrong routechoice

The second decision point is where Daniel Hubmann takes the wrong routechoice to the 8th control. Before this happened, Daniel Hubmann was well ahead of Jonas Leandersson. But the leftmost route (with more climb and worse running suface) was 11 seconds longer than Leandersson’s time on this leg. With the gap between Hubmann and Leandersson being 9 seconds in the end, this was definitely where Hubmann lost the victory chances.

Hubmann actually also lost 7 seconds due to wrong route (or actually more a mistake, taking the wrong alley; thanks for comment below to point that out) to control 6 as well – costing him 7 seconds.

Decision point: Kris Jones misses an alley

Kris Jones lost 16 seconds to the bes split time of Yannick Michiels and 14 seconds to Leandersson on he 5 leg. The reason for the time loss is Jones missing an alley – having to turn down he speed.

Martin Hubmann vs Leandersson and Lysell

Looking at the fight between the medalists Jonas Leandersson, Martin Hubmann and Jerker Lysell, there was never more than 11 seconds behind the three runners. Leandersson lost some time to the other two in the start and end of the race, but was very strong in the middle part of the race. There is no single leg where Hubmann and Lysell lose time, Leandersson is simply faster and better today. Leandersson notably loses some time at the very end of the course, but not enough to threaten his gold medal.

  1. Actually, Daniel Hubmann lost 7 seconds on the way to the 6th (TV) control. And it looked more like a mistake than a route choice, as he took – on live TV – one alley too far right and thus had a longer way to run.

    • Yes, of course number 6 and not number 5, I corrected it in the text. And I agree; although it is a wrong route choice, it is probably not a planned routechoice but rather a mistake. I added a comment about that in the text as well.

  2. You tease! You omitted the run-in!

    • Oops, sorry, my analysis software cuts some corners. Thanks for letting me know, though.

    I supported (mentally) Yannick Michiels, I thought it would be really great have somebody from a “new” country win the WOC…
    I think the mistake on 13-14 leg doesn’t explain everything: regarding leg times he was already suffering after a very strong first part of the run. Seems like he was running 3 km run and forgot about last kilometer. Or maybe some kind of injury I’m not aware of?
    I think it’s a pity.

    • @Zbigniew: I think the reason for the mistake might have been that he was too tired at that point in the course – but that is typical. I am sure we will soon hear Yannick’s own analysis. And I am sure we’ll see more of Yannick later on – he is truly a fantastic athlete, and it is good for international orienteering to have a man like him fighting for the medals.

  4. The GPS doesn’t make sense. I summed Jonas Leanderssons GPS distances for all the legs and it summed up to 3611m but they said that the course was 4.1km. Wtf?

    • @adsads: The GPS in an urban environment is not accurate at all, as you can see from the GPS-tracks. Thus the time for each leg is not taken from the GPS, but from the official split times. And I would not expect the lengths to be correct, no.

  5. From the TV – broadcast we can see that Y. Michels didn’t quite manage to jump the crossable fence to the 15th control, had a crash, and lost about 5sek laying on the ground and I guess much more due to that, for the rest of the course. Looked painful..

    • @Petter: Yannick had already done his mistake before this crash, but yes, I think he would have been more powerful in the last part without this crash.

  6. Thanks for the great analysis, I initially thought after watching the race on TV that Michiels lost the race because he fell over the fence and was feeling sad for him, but I’m happy to see that it was because of a legitimate mistake in the alley on the split before. And the small mistakes by Daniel Hubmann also cost him the victory – so all in all good for the orientering part of the sprint.

    I know that some teams had prepared for a challenging sprint and they simply did not get it today and could not compete on speed, so overall it was a bit weak on the orienteering but the winner was justified in being both a high caliber sprinter as well as a good routepicker.
