Simon cruised through his 800 m heat and into the semis this morning. Then in his semi final he ran a PB of 2.00.87 and qualified for the final as one of the 2 next fastest times finishing 3rd in his heat by 5 hundreths of a second (top 2 automatically qualify). Final is tomorrow.

How did Scott do?

Scott is in the final for the 1500m tomorrow and has an 800m semi in the morning too.

Simon finished 8th (last) in the senior boys 800m final. He ran a 1.59ish something and the winner ran 1.52ish. Scott finished 3rd in the junior boys 800m final in 2.01ish.

Well done Simon and Scott. Got me scared for the sprint race in Aussie.

Just to add to the fear factor...

Not if he plans his date at the Hunua Falls so he can shower

Ben Rattray and Andy Hill won the inaugural World City Chase in Chicago. The City Chase is claimed to be the largest of a new breed of adventure race, taking part in the urban environment. Starting in Canada, this year it extended to other countries, and Rattray and Hill won the Sydney race in March and their tickets to the final. Activities are eclectic - 'twalk aficionados would love the problem-solving element - and you can phone up your mates for answers and use public transport to get about. The 2007 series starts with the Sydney event on 17 Mar.

See latest Australian Orienteer pp16-17, or The significance of this is the move of an essentially rural sport into the city for variety and not least exposure. PS Rattray is Director of Development for Orienteering Australia...

Coast 2 Coast 2-day - go Pat and Kate Bodger, Dave and Catherine Crofts, Martin Peat, Sara and Sia, Pete Squires, and the winner of the first one Joe Sherriff. Also there's Joe's son James. And a guy who astounded us when he did one of our steepest MTBO courses, Ken Looi. Ken rides a unicycle.

In the longest day tomorrow, go ACW, GCW, Brent, Stu Lynch, Don Paterson, Aaron. And any other orienteers I missed. Special wish for rogainer Glen Warner, I hope its not as hot as the Warrumbungles:-))

So what is the website for live coverage ??

Show Profile  Keith Posted: 9 February 2007, 11:51 PM

Aaron Prince is in the leading bunch....

Just cheered for Martin down on Brougham St so he should be finished soon if not by now. We went down to cheer for him and Sara in particular, and any of the 2-dayers that we know and were there about half an hour without seeing anyone we knew. We thought we must have missed them so were about to head home and nearly walked straight into Martin.

We'll go down and cheer for Aaron, Brent, Stu, ACW in a bit - the updates are a bit hard to work out. Anyone know when they should be due. They must be off the river now?
