JWOC Middle Distance

JWOC 2010: Middle Distance Final

After an exciting qualifier yesterday in which Colin and Graeme squeaked into the B final by a single placing each, Damian missed the A final by one second, Lee missed the B final by seconds, and Emily Kemp qualified convincingly for the A final, it was time to lay it all on the line in the last individual race of the week, the Middle finals.

Typical Danish sand-dune terrain, fast, flat and tricky navigation.

All in all, it was a good day for the Canadians. Damian and Colin finished 75th and 81st respectively, Graeme was 95th, Lee was 132nd, Emily Kemp was 13th and Emily Ross was 111th.

Stay tuned for an update after the Relay! Emily Kemp and Emily Ross are running with a Japanese girl. The men's team will consist of Damian, Colin and Graeme and Lee will be running with two Germans.
