Kiwis in Europe

Show Profile  Michael Posted: 9 July 2018, 11:56 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.

And in the Open classes at the WMOC Sprint (much smaller numbers): M21 - Jonty 4th, Kieran 7th; Open2 - Lizzie 3rd, Jula 6th; W20 - Heidi 7th, Tegan 9th, Hayley 10th, Marina mp; W16 - Kaia 13th.

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.

Sprint Scotland over the weekend consisted of 3 sprint WREs in 2 days. In a very classy women's field (led by Maja Alm and including the Danish, Norwegian and British WOC sprint squads) Laura Robertson picked up 2 x 11th and a 6th place

O-Ringen this week, just a small one with 16,000 people. They have MTBO as well as foot, Marquita is dominating W40, and Rob is just outside the placings in M60.

Pretty hard finding kiwis as we enter under various club names, who else is there? http://www.oringen.se/213/english/hoga-kusten-2018.html

Two junior girls and one senior man in the MTBO WOC/JWOC in Austria this week. (Who allowed this to double up?) Georgia Skelton (16yo) has finished 4th in W20 middle distance. http://www.wmtboc2018.at/ Look also for Tegan Knightbridge and Conal Boland-Bristow. And Rob and Marquita in the public races.

Malcolm now reporting on ONZ, thanks Malcolm. Must find a correct pic of Georgia, you're gonna need it I'd say:-))

Show Profile  Michael Posted: 13 August 2018, 1:54 PM  
Georgia Skelton on the podium again in the MTBO/JWOC sprint - 6th. Conal-Boland-Bristow wasn't last after running most of the course:-)) Aus rider Ricky Thackray ran a scoring system on the side for non-European countries, NZ 3rd.

Is Yukon anywhere near Europe? 9 kiwis at Nth Am and Canadian Champs. Martin Peat won M21S on first day, Marquita 2nd W45, Pip Poole 3rd W55. http://yukonorienteering.ca/naoc2018/

The Cerkno Cup is currently being held in Slovenia. Also the South East European Champs. Large NZ elite field. Tim Robertson has won the elite men's Long and Sprint. Laura the Sprint. Matt Ogden on podium in Long. Consistently good results from Toby Scott. Tough looking
terrain physically and navigation wise.
