Other teams to watch are the two US teams: Cambridge (team 230) and the US Junior Team (team 1701).
Earlier today, the all-woman Venla relay ran with 1345 4-person teams. Some well-known Canadians were running for European teams: Emily Kemp ran the anchor for Angelniemen Ankkuri (team 46) which placed 20th (she will also be running for the Ottawa team!) and Louise Oram ran anchor for Bäkkelagets SK 2 (team 365) which placed 60th. Amazing performances!
Go Canada! Go USA!

Next up for Team Canada is the Middle distance, which goes down tomorrow (Thursday, May 26). The starts are in the afternoon, and Emily will be wearing a GPS, so you can watch her dot at http://www.eoc2016.cz/en/ . You can simulate Will's dot by taking a lazer pointer and shining it against a wall in a random pattern. Pretty accurate.
