A superior victory for Tove Alexandersson, Stora Tuna and a brilliant fight in the men's class where William Lind, OK Skogsmårdarna went to goal as a winner.
With strong public support, the two senior elites could end the target at Westombanan in Arvika. William Lind, 10 seconds before 2nd Eskil Kinneberg, IFK Göteborg.
The two winners are extremely happy over a nice week of orientation in the west of Värmland.
- Courses and terrain have been great, with great opportunities for road selections says Tove Alexandersson, the world's best orienteer.
Tove crushed the veteran from Norway Anne M Hausken Nordberg. The win margin became ten minutes. Swiss Simone Niggli became number three, more than twenty minutes after Tove Alexandersson.
Otherwise it was in the men's class where there became mug´s game in the woods. William Lind and Eskil Kinneberg kept a close eye on each other and stamped simultaneously at the last check. On the other hand, they didn´t know where Olav Lundanes who went out first in the pursuit.
- For a while I thought he was before us, but he was not," said William Lind.
Olav Lundanes was barely two minutes after the winner.
The 5-day O-ring in the west of Värmland received a lovely final in the woods northeast of Arvika. For the elite, it was really tough with an increase of 200 meters to the first controls. Long paths went from forest to wilderness and ended in the slalom slope.
