although Matthias Mueller and Fabian Hertner are Swiss not Norwegian, are Norway that desperate to win on home solid that they are sending out reports of such to countries that dont know any better

Looks like we are in for another broken nights sleep. How long do you think our boys will take for the Long course

Are we putting a wager on this? Chris 61.10 Winner 56.50. Go well all you Kiwis. And you too Matt.

Lara and Chris through, both had me nervously calculating who could still slip in ahead for a while!

Thomas ran well too but heck those times are so close.
Young Lundanes is really coming of age now, taking on the maestro Tero.

Brrr... its cold this early morning

Well done kiwis, Lara and Chris make the Finals of the long

Is it early morning, or late night in NZ? Good work there by Lara, and Chris got his act together after a slow start

Great report on your Long Qualification Tom. http://thomasreynolds.wordpress.com/. Really appreciate the time you put into your reporting. Sounds like a good run, and shows just how tough it is at the top.

Hear hear. Another good comparison to play against Tom is ozzie Rob Preston. He is quite experienced, you did well to beat him Tom. You can tell him to eat more apples...

I am absolutely in awe of the fantastic maps, huge areas with no man-made features, and if its like what I've seen very runnable and readable.

Hard-luck story: Sandy Hott (was Sandy Smith, CAN) 16th in both mid and long qualifications. In spite of being married to a Norwegian.

I'm looking forward to seeing the finals maps, just looking at some of the older stuff they look to be a bit different, a few more tracks, less rock, more physical looking. The Qual maps will be hard to beat, I'm wondering whether they would have preferred the other way around but due to better satillite coverage in the final area the decision was made for them. In future events maybe it will become essential for good coverage for tracking etc..

Can we claim any medalist wearing black as a kiwi?
Thought for the day... when will we see more camOsuits on the market? Neil started the trend years ago but unfortunately for him there hasn't seemed to be many orienteering events amongst the zebras on the african savannah
