I like that we have co-opted Emma W onto our USA team :)
Good luck everyone! Enjoy!
Canadians (DGL) leading off both US teams tomorrow.
Nor-Am O friendships at their best!
Looking at their team numbers they must be starting pretty close to the back row.
What fun! I'll be watching the results.
Super fun seeing Emma come through at first control, having gained over 1000 places from the start. :-)
She was in 154th place at the changeover! Great job Emma!
Amanda for OUSA+Emma team, through the first checkpoint in 116th place. Julia did great too! team link
Now it is Izzy's turn. This must be so exciting for them.
Finished in 132nd! Yeah Team Can-Am!!
Katie and Sarah's
What a fabulous result for Can-Am!! Congrats!
David was in at 417th and Thomas is on the course. Go Can-Am!
Thomas is in at 474. Go team!
....she made up 122 places and Erin another 78 to get in just after the leg 7 restart. Great run by Dylan too for a final team placing of 628.
Congratulations Team Can-Am!
Anton Salmenkylä running leg 6 for Helsingin Suunnistajat 2 had the 87th fastest time on the leg.
Sweco 1, the team the Petersens ran on, finished at 473 in the Venla relay.
Thomas just added a handy schedule to our blog! You can track where we are and what we're doing.
Jukola was an awesomeeee race! I hope to do it again soon :)
If you would like to read my write up about it go to: https://naessjanerik.wordpress.com
The Jukola results page shows Emma instead of Sarah; according to the Juniors' blog, Sarah ran the leg .
Origami is correct. Emma was originally scheduled to run the leg but was replaced by Sarah.
While some of the juniors are taking a well-deserved rest before next week's intensive pre-JWOC training and others (Julia, Izzy, and Tyra) are traveling to Estonia to compete in WOC, here are local media stories about JWOC team members Caroline Sandbo
and Katie Petersen
Just a note Julia, Emma, and Tyra are off to WOC.
(Correction: Izzy is not competing in WOC - just Julia and Tyra.)
Looking forward to spectating WOC online starting Friday!
Trying to get ready and bookmark live results of the JWOC races - but can't find any link. Is it too early?
Possibly, since they don't start racing until the 10th...maybe tomorrow?
Looks like the start list for Middle Qualification is up, but still no live results links: http://www.jwoc2017.fi/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/...

The expression on the kid holding the Canada sign though. Caption contest?
"Anybody who wants to mess with these Canadians will have to get past me first."
"Why did I have to wear this banana jacket, when Canada looks so cool in their maple leaf motif?"
"They forgot to bring me a double-double."
"I dont think they were really sorry..."
"Timi gets USA and I'm stuck with this?"
"Sunny ways eh?...sad!"
"My name is Jyrki, why are they calling me little Bieber?"
JWOC Middle Qualifier results
Is it top 15 or top 20 that move on? In any case, it looks like Anton Salmenkyla qualified for the USA. David Runde was 21st in his heat. Go Team USA!
Top 20 qualify for a-final, next 20 in b-final, everyone else in c.
That's how you look when you have plenty of sisu. Why would you smile and look ridiculous if you can look cool and grim?
I don't understand, isn't the child Finnish and therefore isn't that a smile?
No, his face is too smooth. Proper smile looks more like this:
Some of TeamUSA juniors are travelling on to Hungary, for 5 days of JWOC 2018 training.
The JWOC 2018 training camp in Hungary is wrapping up today with a Middle Final simulation on the juniper maze map at Bosca. The six athletes (David Runde, Thomas Laraia, Caroline Sandbo, Julia Doubson, Katie Petersen, and Aidan Minto) have learned a lot about running in the terrain and how to handle the heat of Southern Europe from Coach Greg Ahlswede.
Awesome. Thanks, Greg! Thanks, organizers, logistics people, funders, and juniors!
looking forward to hearing more about the upcoming juniors!
