Its on my screen with Martin 57. Some slow runners coming in. Martin could be in the low 60s yet.

Oh yeah.. now it's good, a bit L8 now - it's business time, good night.
Hopefully see you tomorrow night.

the maps and courses are up on the WUOC website, on Route Gadget, http://www.easl.ee/wuoc2008/index.php?sisu=results

Dane Cavanagh Australia 11:15 (8:15pm)our time
Evan Barr Australia 11:33 (8:33)
Murray Scown Australia 12:35 (9:35)

Jasmine Neve Australia 11:22 (8:22)
Ineka Booth Australia 12:34 (9:34)
Martin Peat New Zealand 11:35 (8:35)

The competition terrain is very similar to yesterday. Varying runnability, lot of vegetation and undergrowth. There's also a lot of small marshes. Overall - technical orienteering.

Weather conditions are yet again very good. Quite clear skies, temperature more than 20c. Lucky them!

Looks fast. Early finishers in with 6min k rate.


Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:17 PM  
Yeah, I'm sure some will be feeling pretty sore after yesterdays mission tho

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:22 PM  
Checked out the route gadget, it always amazes me how some people can go so quick no matter what's in front of them.

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:25 PM  
Rachel Effeney has had some big problems up to the first radio

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:31 PM  
Hmmmm ... whats the weather like down your way robbie. It wouldn't be raining by any chance would it?

Show Profile  robbie Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:31 PM  
97 starters in the mens field tonight. Will be a long wait for results. Yeah,they will be stuffed after the long.

Show Profile  Paul I Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:35 PM  
I know there ain't much happening but did you really count them all, well done.

Show Profile  robbie Posted: 1 August 2008, 8:39 PM  
Rain--rain and more rain. The all blacks are in for a wet one tomorrow. 30mins before Martin gets to first radio control. He should be pleased with his efforts. 2hrs 05 is a long time in the heat.And 2.29 behind in the sprint was a good run.
