Euro Champs sprint qualification: Nick and Roz to the A final!
The European Champs sprint qualification was held in Falun today. Ireland had four runners and both Nick and Roz made it into the A final. Nick qualified in 14th place in heat B with a good race and is happy to be in Saturday’s final. Roz took the last qualification place in heat C and was happy with a clean race. Niamh missed out in heat A by 16 seconds, and Dave was 29th in heat A.
Tomorrow sees the first final of the European Championships – the middle distance at Skattungbyn. There will be a lot of coverage of the A finals: GPS tracking, live results and even live TV coverage on the Swedish channel SVT. We are a little unsure if you can see the live TV broadcast outside Sweden but this is the link:http://svtplay.se/v/2798781/em_i_orientering_17_5_13_10
See the EOC website for more details (www.eoc2012.se). The first start in the men’s A final is 11:15 and the women’s at 13:00 (Irish times). Before that, the Irish trio of Hugh, Roz and Niamh will be competing in the B finals at 8:40 (no GPS).
