I'm guessing that comment isn't serious, but very happy to be proved wrong. As far as I know the fastest would be Martin Dent at 13:41, surely. Would be great to see someone beat that. https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/australia/martin-den...
We are talking current TT time. I would agree Marty is probably the fastest at the moment, not sure he is hitting 13:41 nowadays though!
Patrick Jaffe thoughts?
OK, you are right - Pat is the quickest Aussie on AP currently with15:22https://www.attackpoint.org/runperfs.jsp?distkm=5....
I guess technically my full nickname is 'Australia's fastest orienteer at 5km TT's recorded in the past 12 months' but that's a bit long for dropping into casual conversation so that's why I tend to just simplify it to 'Australia's fastest orienteer'
In all seriousness though, those times from Marty are very impressive so I think it's awesome that there's an athlete of his calibre involved in the sport at the moment
Is it really a nickname if no one else calls you it?
Here's the full list of AP recorded (as "race") 5k times sub-20 in 2018/2019:

Would have thought quite a few of the people on that list would have the potential to go quite a bit faster than the listed times. (By way of comparison, during my peak years I was doing mid-16s, and most of the others in the Australian top 10 of the time would have been somewhat faster than that).
I guess the peak years are pre-Attackpoint? [blairtrewin 7/03/2007 17:54]
Yes - most of my running PBs were in 1996 or 1997.
If we are going to dig up ancient history there is this 15:10 from Terry Farrell.https://www.attackpoint.org/viewlog.jsp/user_2756/...
I think he said his best was just under 15.
You also missed Ezra's 15:25 on 1/02/2019
and Bruce had a best of 17:25 on 29/12/2018
Well I knew Terry as "HeyU", so that one is news to me. I thought I was the only one that logged my 1985 training!
I fixed Bruce's time above.
Is "Ezra" fenry's new anonymous AP name where he doesn't log anything? I don't see any AP training under that name.
fenry has a 16:29 from 29/5/2014, but he would surely have gone a lot quicker than that since then, but probably not on AP.
Congrats Brodie. You have made it to the top of noisy logs!
Marty dent should have been selected for the sprint WoC team last year.... discuss.
Old orienteers don’t understand sprint rules and should be banned from sprint o...discuss
Well, Kris Jones (GBR) was 10th in the Sprint WOC last year and has the top ranked 5km on Attackpoint currently with 13:45 (and all years also if you discount one bogus time). https://www.attackpoint.org/viewlog.jsp/user_3207/...
So not quite as quick as Marty in his hey-day but still pretty quick.
Orienteering requires navigation.
That's a bit unfair. When you run really fast you have less time to think. Marty does OK e.g all the 2019 NOLs and if you really want an "untainted" example Day 2 of Easter 2018 - Long Distance: Marty finished 5th off the first start (and first finisher).
That comment wasn't about Marty.. but orienteering in general.
Orienteers who over take other orienteers while driving to the event, deserve to be head butted... discuss
Hahaha. I miss Shep's presence on AP.
Carsten Jorgensen has run a 13.40 according to this
