Kiwis in Europe

Show Profile  Michael Posted: 9 July 2018, 9:56 AM  
Gillian Ingham Gold in W60 Sprint! (Talking Foot-O now, 4000 participants in Denmark, just 7 kiwis made the A finals.) Anne Scott 8th W80, Marquita 11th W50. Across the ditch, Tash Key won W45 by an unbelievable 1:42, Herman Wehner 2nd M90. Think there was a M100 entered but he didn't start, perhaps resting for the long.

If NZ is ever involved in a big war again, call up the MTB-orienteers. They fly under the radar. See first sentence of the ONZ news item on Gillian's win:-))

Marquita top kiwi in the Middle final: 5th and 3min after. Ross 13th although only 4min down. Tash Key not running (perhaps off to support Aston - or prepare for WOC!) Hermann soldiering on. The middle final is a qualifier for the long on Friday, with a complex, and some say unfair, chance for promotion/relegation between A and B etc.

And in the long Marquita 8th, Ross 9th and Jenni 12th. What's the name of that surgeon who did your knee Marquita? Are they any good at heads?

Haha! Middle distance felt a bit like home. Long was a bit scrappier on the ground with lots of vegetation change. Quite a lot of track running (if you didn’t have a strained calf muscle!) so suited the speedy runners but still tricky in places so was a good challenge. Tash Key is managing Uni Champs team so was never going to run the forest events. Weather is fantastic, best summer in years apparently.
