Ski Orienteering World Cup: Lamov continues in winning form

Posted on | January 22, 2014 | Category: News

Andrey Lamov on the way to the first control.

It was a Russian double in the first World Cup race over Middle distance at Orsa Grönklitt, Sweden today. Tatyana Rvacheva got the better of home athlete Tove Alexandersson with a 56-second victory in the women’s race, whilst in the men’s it was another win for Andrey Lamov, this time by 30 seconds over Hans Jørgen Kvåle, Norway.

Rvacheva was fastest almost from the start. At a little under half-way she led by 44 seconds, with Finland’s Sonja Mörsky second and Tove Alexandersson 4 seconds slower in third place. At the finish these placings were reversed, with Mörsky having dropped 49 seconds on Alexandersson after the radio control.

Lamov was fastest overall after control 4. At the radio point he was 24 seconds ahead, with Hans Jørgen Kvåle second and Staffan Tunis, Finland third, 27 seconds down. Home athlete Peter Arnesson came through strongly in the second half of the course to finish third.

Tomorrow (Thursday) there are two races: a Sprint prologue (estimated winning times 14 minutes, on a 1:5,000 scale map) followed later by a chasing start shortened Middle distance (35 minutes, 1:10,000). Only the chasing start race results count for World Cup points.
