  1. Since recently there have been a lot of comments about not good sprint courses or other issues happening in official IOF sprint orienteering: As it looks now the sprint final (unfortunatly only the final) seems like a very good course and organisation. Hope the athlets will tell the same later. Thumbs up!

    • I agree, looks like nice courses with many interesting routechoice challenges. We’ll see what the runners say later.

  2. Thanks for this great analysis Jan.

    Is there anywhere one can view the video replays of the race?

    Thanks

  3. Sprint qualification. Does anyone runs throught swamp? Was it possible?
