Nicolas Simonin makes Long Final

After his success in the Sprint Final, Nicolas Simonin today qualified for the Long Final which is being held on Thursday. He finished 15th in his heat, getting in by the hair of his moustache. He says that he felt tired in the forest after his races the day before.

The Long Qualification area turned out to be nicer than the nearby training area and model area which had a lot more (biting) insects and undergrowth than the area used today. This was welcomed by the team who were expecting a rough time of it.

The other Irish in action (Darren, Hugh & Ciara) all finished outside of the top 15..

Live results from the races can be followed here,

Middle Distance Qualification races are on tomorrow with 5 of the team in action. Darren, Ruairi and Colm in the Mens with Rosalind and Ciara running the Womens race. They start as follows,

Good luck to them tomorrow.
