The usual questions: what happened to Amanda and Austin?
Jul 14, 2016 12:58 PM # 
Austin injured his ankle before the middle quali and decided to rest up today for the relay. Amanda is a little sick and we're not sure yet how that will turn out.

Way to go Asne!

Results show Michael with a mispunch. Something to learn from...but he made the A final!

Hope Amanda's health situation resolves soon.

Watching the GPS, it appears that Michael skipped a control. In a high pressure situation, such things can happen (TGIF at WOC, for example).

Wishing him and the rest of the team the best for the relay! Go USA!

So many great performances from Team USA so far this week! Julia's 8th place in the B final today would be good enough for the top half of the A final field with the same per km time.

And Martin's time would put him in the middle of the men's A final field.

Great racing all, and good luck in the relay! I hope Austin and Amanda are able to recover.

Great to hear the results, good luck all for the relay!!

Anton appears to be saving himself for the Relay.

No doubt teamed with Michael & Martin...

For the ladies: Amanda, Asne & Julia or Izzy

It appears that in the Official Results, "Disqualified" = did not start (DNS).

But what does "result ok" (without a time) mean? (these are only in "C" finals) Runners with that designation are not listed in the Eventor Results or Winsplits, so is it a different kind of DNS?
Jul 15, 2016 4:59 AM # 
Probably means they finished the C final course fine, but were unofficial due to DNS/DNF/DQ in the heats.
Jul 15, 2016 5:52 AM # 
Yes, like Emma Sherwood, who did not run in the quali
Jul 15, 2016 8:20 AM # 
So it's as if they didn't exist...
Jul 15, 2016 8:25 AM # 
It'd be like playing in the US Open (tennis) final without playing any of the games leading up to it or as a better example, settling for a semi-final loser's cheque without turning up to any matches because you figure that's as far as you'd get anyway.
