Scott had a superb run finishing in 9th place 15 seconds down. Unfortunately he ran past a control on gamlebybrua and was dsq'd. So close to a top ten! We look forward to following him in the Long.
I was guarding a control for 5 hours today and got to witness the fitness of not only Minna Kauppi (pictured below) but also the porno kit being sported by the Finnish men. (couldnt force myself to take a photo).
I was impressed by the level of orienteering not only from the Scandis but also from the Chinese (Shuangyan Hao) and the Italian stallion (Marco Seppi).
Expect more deep insights in the week to come. After a very impressive woc debut, Rocky has been ejected from his accommodation (now living in a school) so hopefully he will contribute to the coverage. As always if you would like to write something, please submit an article!
