As many of you know, the European Orienteering Championships, which are also Round 1 of the 2018 World Cup*, begin in Ticino Switzerland today with the sprint qualifier.

Team USA is represented by Giacomo Barbone, Morten Jorgensen, and Anton Salmenkyla. Anton had the best result in the sprint qualifier, finished 29th, just over a minute from qualifying for the finals.

After competition 11 the sum of the best 8 scores out of the first 9 competitions plus the scores from competitions 10 and 11 defines the World Cup winner 2018, the best orienteer for the season! Reigning Champs are Tove Alexandersson (SWE) and Matthias Kyburz (SUI).

is anyone else having trouble with the IOF Live coverage? The GPS tracking is working, but not the video coverage.

This seems to happen every single year on the first race.

Giac>>How come you didn't run?
May 8, 2018 12:53 PM # 
Yes, a very disappointing day for the Swedish men. A couple of big mistakes (3-5 min) for a few of them + one DNF (Albin) and one DNS? (Gustav).
I havenĀ“t heard what happened yet and if there is more injury/sickness in the team since already two of the original runners had to step back due to sickness...

Great run by Anton!

Rumors are flying around that both Albin and Gustav had to go to the hospital...
