This was Louise's first ultra-distance trail race. She finished in 5:41:19, 5 seconds ahead of #2. Here's a video of the sprint to the finish. You can read her race report on her training log.
And a shout out to orienteer, Brian May, of Salmon Arm who was 6th overall in the race - in a time of 5:39:11. Not bad for an old guy :-) Brian told me that he was very happy not to get run down by Louise as he was fading fast towards the end.

The orienteering three concept as applied to our Canadian juniors is that we had three competitors in the same classes. Three men in the C final and three women in the B final. Overall the Canadians had a better day and you can see details on this elsewhere in the blog. Emily Kemp # 523 came in 22 in the A final!
If anything we can all say "we were there" on the day orienteering history was made.

It was a surprise win by France’s Lucus Basset in the men’s sprint with a time of 15:07 on the 2.9 km course. Exceptionally, a Norwegian was the only Scandinavian to finish in the top ten in tenth place.
Ida Bobach of Denmark is a repeat gold medalist on the women’s 2.5 km course with a time of 14:29 with fellow teammate Emma Klingenberg just 2 seconds behind her. It is expected that Bobach will deliver strong performances at the long and middle events as well.
For Team Canada, Emily K. had her best sprint finishing at JWOC with at time of 16:37 to put her in 38th place out of 130 women.Graeme had an excellent race and finished 106th out of 157. He was unfortunately caught in the trap set between controls 13 and 14 on the men’s course. It cost him about 25 seconds.
