leg_00

Switzerland and Norway with 12 runners to the A-final. Best ever JWOC middle qualification for Germany with 8 runners in the A-final. Turkey with their first ever runner in the A-final. These were some of the positive highlights in today’s Junior World Championships Middle Qualification in Ftan, Switzerland.

Heat winners today were Olli Ojanaho (Finland, reigning champion), Joey Hadorn (Switzerland, Gold medalist from Sprint and Long), Isac von Krusenstierna (Sweden, Bronze medalist from Sprint and Long), Valerie Aebischer (Switzerland, Silver medalist from Long), Johanna Öberg (Sweden, Silver medalist from last year’s JWOC Middle) and Simona Aebersold (Switzerland, Gold medalist from Long  Sprint).

Who qualified and who didn’t?

The JWOC Live Blog (which World of O contributes to),  took a look at who qualified from each country. Here are the highlights:

  • Only Norway and Switzerland have all their runners in the A-final. It was getting close for Norway, but now they managed the second year in a row to bring all their runners into the A-final. Last year, they were the only nation, 2016 in Ftan they are accompanied by the host nation Switzerland.
  • Historic: Orhan Kutlu (TUR) finished in 9th spot and takes the first time EVER a spot for Turkey in an A-final. Really strong!
  • Germany has 4 men and 4 women in the A-final! Best ever for Germany – last year’s 2+4 was the previous best.
  • Hungary with 3 men and 3 women in the A-final – of these two were in the lucky 20th spot. On the other hand, Hungary did also have two in the unlucky 21st spot. Still, this is the best results for Hungary in the Middle Qualification the last 10 years!
  • Sweden has 5 men and 4 women in the A-final. Two of the women were outside the top 20 qualifiers – in addition Oskar Leinonen did not start today due to illness. Sweden is statistically the strongest federation in the middle qualification, this was their worst results since 2012. On the bright side Sweden had two heat winners and one second place.
  • Just one danish man in the A-final, this is the worst result for the Scandinavian country since 2001! Three danish girls into the A-final, which is also under the 15-year-average. Amanda Falck Weber performed best of them with a second place in Heat 2.
  • Poland had only three women at the start, and all three finished Top 8 in their heats – strong performance! In addition on man to the A-final, making a total of 4 to the A-final for Poland.
  • Three Finnish runners missed the cut for the A-finals. Maybe a small disappointment for the well-known orienteering nation, because this result is as bad as in 2012 latest.
  • 5 girls and 5 boys from Czech Republic in the A-final tomorrow. Better than their average of 4.6 in the last 15 years.
  • Anatoly Fomiciov (MDA) qualified himself for the A-final in M20. This means, Moldova is back in A-final after two years of absence!
  • Australia will have two men and no women in the A-final. Doyle and McNulty both had excellent races and finished 6th in their heats.
  • Italy will have two men and no women in the A-final tomorrow – an average year for Italy. Note however that the two Italian men ran very well; Scalet in 4th and Debertolis in 8th.
  • Three Austrian boys are qualified for the A-finals, clearly more than their average of 1.4 (over the last 15 years). Matthias Peter did very well with his 2nd place in Heat 2. But just one Austrian girl made it into A-final, what is lower than the 15-year-average.
  • 2 men and 4 women to the A-final for Great Britain. 3 women more than last year for the Great Britain team, but one woman less than in 2014.
  • France will have 3 men and 2 women in the A-final, all of these finishing in the Top 11 today.
  • Lithuania has nobody in the A-final tomorrow. It is only the second time this happens the last 15 years, only 2009 the A-final went without Lithuanian colors at the start.
  • Slovakia has only one man in the A-final – just like the three last years. Dusan Slama is the man running the A-final for Slovakia.

    Thank you for great coverage of JWOC – again. A small correction to your middle qual text, Simona has won sprint, not long!

    • Thanks for good words! And yes, of course I know that Simona won the sprint. Correcting now!

  2. Unfortunately no one word about Russian Team:((
    Dvoryanskaya Anna (2place at sprint) had problem with SI but she could come to the final!

    • @Natalia: Yes, Russia and several other countries who had “normal” results are not included in this overview – Russia’s results are also in the LiveBlog which is linked to :)
