World Orienteering Champs 2008 Czech Republic

Khramov on TV... wish I could understand more Czech than "Khramov" and "cechas"...

I think the little dot that just finished was Khramov, and he was flying!

Managed to get the video up to 34% buffering once - think I'll give it a miss. Chris 27th, Ross 31st to date, Emil Wingstedt DQ

have results now 32 and 36

Show Profile  John Marshall Posted: 14 July 2008, 4:01 AM  
Very exciting watching the Hubmann-dot on the run-in... but not quite enough, 2.4 seconds down from Khramov. And now they're showing a final scoreboard sort of graphic...

Show Profile  onemanfanclub Posted: 14 July 2008, 4:05 AM  
All in now, Chris 36th, Ross 40th, top 2 non-euros with the Aussies and Patrick from Canada the last 3 apart from DQs

Looks like Khramov won it on two 1 minute legs right near the end, 3 & 5 sec ahead of Hubmann, and up to twice that on all the other contenders

Hey, there's Christina (who was over from US for Waitangi) on the TV. ...and now I can see Chris and Emily on Czech TV!

...

Khramov on what looks like the podium, here comes Hubmann... no, we've given up on the live sport and gone to a 5 minute ad for something called the Olympics. Sheesh...

In addition to non-functioning text, prelim results that flick back to first every 15sec when I'm studying 40th, I can't find the TV link. Had it before, what's the link? Not that I'm expecting anything great.

But your offer to tell us about where Mikael Mamleev got in heat B was very droll. The broadcast links have fallen off the first news page, but are still on the second:

Hopefully for the next race "online audio from arenas" will be more than just "to be specified".

Hopefully archived TV will eventually appear at http://www.ct24.cz/sport/ but it's not there yet. See previous page of this thread for where the live streaming was.

yes, where's Per?

Show Profile  Greg Posted: 14 July 2008, 8:54 AM  
Looks like Ross and Chris were exact opposites by the splits, Chris started slow and picked it up, while Ross was gong well, 18th place before what looks like running out of puff, will have to wait and see what they say?

what a killer first leg!

Show Profile  Michael Posted: 14 July 2008, 6:05 PM  
Looks like a challenging course, specially with that long first leg. A traditional old city centre with its random shapes is ideal, the modern rectangular landscape is nowhere near as good. The river with limited crossing points also helps. If you weren't wet by #2 then you would be by #3...

Hi Guys,

Sprint Final was excellent course, very challenging. I believe I picked the good route choices, but poor execution over first half of course. Ran across wrong bridge going to first control and lost about 30sec, then a bit hesitant around the next 5, with 10s mistake to no5. After that not too bad, a little hesitant, and slower running than the top guys. All and all a fun race.

Interesting facial expression.
Also quite a bit of coverage of Chris on the archived footage from this morning. And it plays okay now too.
