Great blogging about the junior trip!

But no indication as to who wrote the blog entries...

I exchanged some messages with Isabel. The team left right after the Swiss relays to head to Pontresina for a few days of pre-JWOC training, so Isabel didn't hear much about how it went for the men's teams. They were to take it easy, as they have JWOC starting in a week. She reported that the girls did really well, mostly running around 70 min for 6.8k with 270m of climb.

Thank you for posting the links to all the information about the juniors' adventures, Barb. It looks like they've been having lots of fun out in Europe this summer and that they are totally ready for this year's JWOC!

Amanda and Aasne will comfortably make the Middle A final - awesome! Julia looks like she may as well, super! The US women are doing very well so far in the Middle Qual. Wish I could see Erin right now.

Pia and Leif Blake both finishing well for Canada.

Top 20 make the final?

10 Aasne (Heat 3)
9 Amanda (Heat 1)
Michael is 17th! Awesome! Looks like he is in!
Oo, Martin currently 20th in his heat... slipped to 22, so B final

USA will have quite a few in the B final with solid races:
Isabel, Tyra, Julia (just a few places out of A), Evalin
Anton, Martin

Really strong results, all the women in A or B, that's great. Compared to a few years ago when we had few women, or just starting exposing more women to JWOC, but still hitting the C final a lot.

Congrats also to the first time juniors who got some great experience out there today! Years ahead of them to train and improve; I'm looking forward to watching their progress.
