World University Orienteering Champs 2008 - Estonia

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 31 July 2008, 9:05 PM  
...in the meantime Junior world champion Markus Puusepp (EST)
is geting Estonian hopes up, he passes spectator control in 2nd place

...and Una Arama (LAT) the current leader in the womens finish was ineloquent. Not very happy about her race, but still - leading.

Yay, Martin in 7th, ahhhh crap it's Martin Hammarberg of Sweden

At 4th Radio best of the Aussies, Murray Scown is still running ok and in top 30, but times behind the leaders are starting to spread on this 12.2 km course

Oh what happened. Now at 3rd Radio Martin lost 2 1/2 min on Barr who is now 1 place ahead of him 1 min up, and lost 8 min on Scown (11 1/2 min up)

... and a few snippets at the mo
In men's spectator control
Michael Smola is the leader, still running with Edgar Bertuks, but only 18 sec ahead of Yury Masnyy (RUS)

Martin Grotle Soukup (NOR)
comes in walking. His comment to fans: bad day at work.

Yesterdays winner Seline Stalder (SUI)
says she made a big mistake together with Dana Brozkova with the 13th control. It was a compass mistake and they got really lost. The terrain must be demanding!

Vesa Taanila (FIN)
finishes in 2nd position so far. He says he lost about 10 minutes alltogether, unhappy with map.

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 31 July 2008, 9:46 PM  
As expected Michal Smola (CZE) has lead at each radio, but at 3rd
Edgars Bertuks (LAT) is only 40 sec behind


Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 31 July 2008, 9:51 PM  
Smola and Bertuks should be at 4th any second now, then a few minutes to the finish......

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 31 July 2008, 9:53 PM  
oh yeah good timing, somethings happened to the 4th radio results, with nothing showing!!!!!!!!! Nice

Michal Smola (CZE)
finishes world university champion 3 times in a row. He says he had a good race, some mistakes in the marshes, course was technical and he enjoyed it.

Men's preliminary results

1 Michal Smola (CZE) 81:17 2 Fabian Hertner (SUI) +1:59 3 Yury Masnyy (RUS) +3:56 4 Edgars Bertuks (LAT) +7:08 5 Johan Bäckman (FIN) +9:12 6 Markus Puusepp (EST) +9:48
