Sweden won the World Orienteering Championships (WOC) Relay in both the men’s and women’s class in very interesting and technical terrain in Czech Republic earlier today.

In the women’s class Sweden (Lisa Risby, Sara Hagström, Tove Alexandersson) took a clear victory, 2:33 ahead of Switzerland (Elena Roos, Sabine Hauswirth, Simona Aebersold) with Norway (Marie Olaussen, Kamilla Steiwer, Andrine Benjaminsen) at 7:01. In the men’s class the battle for gold was open throughout the last leg, with Albin Ridefelt, William Lind and Gustav Bergman running Sweden in to victory 51 seconds ahead of Norway (Gaute Steiwer, Kasper Fosser, Eskil Kinneberg) with Switzerland (Martin Hubmann, Florian Howald, Matthias Kyburz) in 3rd at 2:00.

Women: Hagström decided at leg 2

Sweden decided the relay already at the second leg through a very strong leg by Sara Hagström, giving anchor Tove Alexandersson a 3:40 lead. Alexandersson took it easy towards the end to save som energy for tomorrow’s long distance – Tove Alexandersson’s 8th WOC gold medal in a row. In the end the gap from Sweden down to Switzerland in silver position was 2:33. Behind Switzerland there was a very tight battle for bronze. Czech Republic looked like a clear medalist until control 4, but a big mistake by Jana Knapova at control 5 let Russia’s Svetlana Mironova and Norway’s Andrine Benjaminsen get into the medal battle. Benjaminsen got into the lead, then lost contact with Russia and Czech Republic after a one minute mistake at control 7, but was simply physically stronger and managed to run Norway into bronze.

Men: Strong last leg by Bergman

In the men’s  class Norway’s Kasper Fosser ran a very strong second leg, giving the Norwegian anchor Kinneberg a one minute lead ahead of Finland and Sweden with Switzerland nearly 3 minutes behind. Bergman continued his good flow from the middle distance, and passed Kinneberg halfways in the relay. In the end Bergman could run Sweden in to victory nearly a minute ahead of Norway. Behind Norway, Switzerland’s Matthias Kyburz passed Finand and got closer and closer to Norway, reducing Norway’s lead to half a minute at the arena passage.
