New World Cup standings after WOC

Posted on | August 30, 2016 | Category: News, Newsletter, WOC news

Tove Alexandersson and Matthias Kyburz received the World Cup leader jerseys, and can wear them until the World Cup finals in Switzerland in October. 

Tove Alexandersson and Matthias Kyburz were in front of the overall World Cup before WOC and with good performances from both runners, the very top is unchanged.

Looking at the overall World Cup standings, it seems good for Tove Alexandersson in the women’s and Matthias Kyburz in the men’s. With only one World Cup round left, they both have a lead of more than 100 World Cup points.

The three individual events in the Nokian Tyres World Orienteering Championships in Strömstad-Tanum counted in the overall World Cup.

For the women, the top three remains as before WOC with Tove Alexandersson, Judith Wyder and Maja Alm at the top.

Just outside the top three, WOC had an impact. Natalia Gemperle from Russia, with bronze at Middle and silver at Long, jumps from a 16th position to being 4th overall.

Anastasia Denisova did three stable races, with a bronze medal on the Sprint as particular highlights, and gains 36 positions in the World Cup standing and is currently in 15th position.

Just as for the women, so the men’s top three remain as before WOC with Matthias Kyburz, Daniel Hubmann and Gustav Bergman as the top three. The following positions are characterized by a good WOC for the Norwegians. Olav Lundanes goes from 12th to 4th position by winning the Long and coming second in the Middle. His fellow compatriot Magne Daehli climbs two position into 5th.

Other notable jumps in the standings include Lucas Basset from France going from 21st position to 9th by making the podium twice, and Vojtech Kral from the Czech Republic gaining nine positions into 11th.

Besides the individual World Cup, the third round of the Sprint Relay World Cup was decided at WOC. Denmark and Switzerland are battling for the overall victory with Russia and Sweden as outsiders. Denmark won the Sprint Relay in Strömstad, with Switzerland in second position, which puts the World Cup standing to a tie between the two nations, with a comfortable gap down to Russia in third position and Sweden in fourth.

The Sprint Relay World Cup consists of four rounds with the three best counting towards the final result. Sweden and Russia have to win the last round to win overall, and at the same time hope neither Denmark nor Switzerland come second. If Sweden or Russia do not win, the best placed of Denmark and Switzerland will take the victory.

The World Cup finals take place in Switzerland 14-16 October with Sprint Relay, Long and Sprint.

Below is the top ten in both women’s and men’s individual World Cup standings. See the full list here and for Sprint Relay here.
