Engström and Tunis head World Cup standings

Posted on | March 5, 2012 | Category: News

With 9 of the 12 individual races now completed, leaders in the Ski Orienteering World Cup standings are Josefine  Engström, Sweden, and Staffan Tunis, Finland, with Russia’s Polina Malchikova and Andrey Grigoriev in second place.

Josefine Engström enjoyed very good results in the European Championships in Ukraine and the just-finished round in Kazakhstan. Engström has built up a lead of 58 points over Malchikova, but both will be looking over their shoulders at third-placed Tove Alexandersson, Sweden, who has completed in three fewer races because she chose to compete in the Junior World Championships in Ukraine. In the six World Cup races she has taken part in, she has won four and been second-placed twice.

Both Staffan Tunis and Andrey Grigoriev have performed consistently well in the two recent rounds. Grigoriev is only 22 points behind Tunis, so has a strong chance of catching him in the final round in Sweden. There is then a gap of 47 points down to Sweden’s Erik Rost in third place, whilst fourth-placed Hans Jørgen Kvåle, Norway, 10 points further down, has taken part in one race fewer than the others.

In the final individual standings it is a competitor’s ten best scores out of the twelve races which will count; the Final, an ultra-long distance race, counts double points.

In the Sprint standings, compiled from individual Sprint and Mixed Sprint Relay results, it is the same top three in the women’s class, whilst Peter Arnesson, Sweden is in third place in the men’s. In the Relay standings the order is the same in both women’s and men’s classes: Russia, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Norway and Kazakhstan are the leading six teams.
