busa :: Strain & Elder win

The big rivals in BUSA took one victory each.

EUOC's Murray Strain grabbed a superb victory over the in form Sheffield duo of Oli Johnson and Matt Crane. Murray has been prducing some impressive performances on the Fell racing and cross country circuits but today was the test to see if he could convert it into Orienteering results - and he passed with flying colours, despite one of his shoes falling apart leaving him to do the remaining 3km with a sole missing!
