Tove Alexandersson (Sweden) won the women’s class after a thrilling finish at the European Championships Long distance in Czech Republic today – nearly giving a way the gold medal at the last controls. Daniel Hubmann (Swizerland) won a clear victory in the men’s class.

In the women’s class Tove Alexandersson had higher speed than the competitors, and even with some slower routechoices in the first part of the course she was still ahead when approaching the last controls. A big mistake here nearly cost her the gold medal, but in the end the gap to Anne Margrethe Hausken Nordberg (Norway) in silver was 41 seconds and more than 2 and a half minute to Svetlana Mironova (Russia) in third.

Hubmann in his own class

In the men’s class it looked like a Swiss day from the start, with Daniel Hubmann, Matthias Kyburz and Baptiste Rollier being in a clear lead in the first part of the course. Only Hubmann could keep up the speed all the way to the finish though – choosing good route choices and executing well all the way – running to a clear victory. The two other Swiss had to give way for the Scandinavians toward the end. After a thrilling finish Magne Dæhlie (Norway) took the silver medal – 1:22 behind Hubmann. Martin Regborn (Sweden) took bronze another 46 seconds down, beating Carl Godager Kaas (Norway) with 2 seconds after a tight battle all the way to the finish.
