Tight at the top in TrailO Championships

Posted on | April 14, 2014 | Category: News

Full points and just 1 second difference at the timed controls; that was the situation at the top of the results board for the Open class after the first day of PreO today. Jari Turto, Finland has the smallest of advantages overnight over his fellow countryman Antti Rusanen. Michael Johansson, Sweden, leads the Paralympic class by a slightly bigger margin: 3 seconds!

Turto and Rusanen were the only two to get full points in today’s competition, but the scores are very close well down the field. And the two timed controls were being answered correctly by the fastest in only 7 seconds! Several of the controls were on a steep hillside with gullies and other detail, which required very accurate height and distance estimation.

Today’s scores are added to tomorrow’s to give the overall results for the PreO competition, and the TempO final is on Wednesday.
