WC Middle PostFinance: Maps and Results


A great day for Switzerland in the World Cup middle distance #4 in Appencell: Matthias Kyburz won the mens class 4 seconds ahead of Olav Lundanes while  Simone Niggli won the womens class ahead of Judith Wyder and Minna Kauppi in a shared 2nd place.

The comments about the course from the runners after the race were not too positive – few real route choices and a lot of running. But still the best orienteers were in the top of the results.

Below you see a comparison of Simone Niggli and Minna Kauppi for the first part of the course – where Kauppi was faster. Niggli used her “Turbo” to get away from Kauppi in the second part of the course.
