Middle Qualification

The three middle distance qualification races were held at Änggårdsbergen. Alex ran in heat A and finished the 3.9km course in 37:36 and 38th place. The top 20 from each heat go into the A final, the following 20 into the B final and the remaining 20 into the C final. Alex just made the B final, which he is very happy about. He had a decent run, with no major mistakes. His route is below. He says that although he didn't mess up too much it is a bit disconcerting when the Scandinavian girls run faster through the forest.
Dylan ran in heat B. He finished in 44:56 in 48th place. He will be in the C final tomorrow. He says he had a bad day, with plenty of mistakes. His course and route is below.

Here is a picture of our Swedish Taxi Driver friend Karl (as requested from SA). He is coordinating the photos and videos for the host club. The video we watched last night will be on Youtube soon.
The B and C finals start at 12:00 tomorrow and the A final is later in the afternoon.
Apparently the live commentary and results worked well today. The splits are already on Winsplits
