Mixed weekend at World Cup in Switzerland for Nick

Two very contrasting courses faced the world’s top orienteers in Switzerland. The middle distance on Saturday (a mixture of both orienteering and much taped route!) saw Nick finish in a disappointing 83rd position behind Swiss winner Matthias Kyburz. In Sunday, a sprint around the St. Gallen old town gave a great result, finishing in 17th in a competitive B final (results). Nick has been competing well in sprint races this year and is a good prospect for his second WOC sprint final.

You can re-watch GPS tracking from the top runners at the World Cup PostFinance homepage.

Next up for the Irish team: WOC! :)
