Matthias Kyburz (SUI) and Marika Teini (FIN) took the gold medals on tricky courses in today’s European Orienteering Championships (EOC) Middle in Tessin, Switzerland.

On another strong Swiss day Switzerland took the two first places in the men’s class. Matthias Kyburz took his second gold medal of two possible – winning 1:10 ahead of his team-mate Florian Howald. Olav Lundanes (NOR) finished third. Sunday’s other gold medalist in the Sprint – Daniel Hubmann – was on the way towards a medal until he did a big miss at the short leg to the 10th control (see graphical splitsgraph below).

Dramatic women’s race

In the women’s class it looked like it could be “the double” for Switzerland with Julia Gross finishing with the best time as last starter. Unfortunately Gross had missed a punch and was disqualified – and thus Marika Teini could celebrate a somethat surprising gold medal ahead of big favourite Tove Alexandersson (SWE). Young Simona Aebersold (SUI) took the bronze medal. Alexandersson was in the lead when approaching the second last control, but missed towards the end of the course.

The below graphical splitsgraph shows how Alexandersson had it all in the hands on the 14th control – but then lost more than 2 minutes on the second last control. A strong finish secured the Swede the silver medal. Simona Aebersold did also have a quite large mistake of nearly 2 minutes on the 9th control – Marika Teini’s victory was due to a stable technical performance while keeping good speed.
