Kiwis in Europe

Tommy was the only one of the kiwi 3 to get through to the middle distance final, in which he eventually finished 50th (~40th 'WOC equivalent'). Pretty good achievement for someone still just stepping up to senior elite level. Biggest news of the day is probably Marika Teini's win over Tove - she's been getting more and more consistently good results lately but wouldn't have featured on the favourites list.

Tim & Laura no doubt feeling frustrated to not qualify, but they're in good company - the seemingly innocuous courses (where height control on cross-slope legs seemed to be the main technical challenge) knocked out quite a few competitors with strong reputations - including most of the Swedish men's team (although there's rumours of illness in the Swedish camp which could be a factor)

Sprint relay today, NZ is one woman short of a team, so not sure if they're able to make an unofficial team with a spare runner or if they'll be resting up for the long race.

Quickly catching up on the EOC long distance race (final event of the EOC) on Sunday:
Tim 27th, Tommy 49th. Good results on what looks to have been a suitably brutal course, c low 20s and 40s World Champs equivalent. Didn't see Laura in the results, not even as a DNS, so I assume she was always planning to sit this one out.

Tim was the only one of the 3 to earn World Cup points, now sitting 27th with 38 points.
