I love relay

Long distance wasn't so good for me as I planed. Of course I'm still very satisfied with 5th place, but my race could be better. Good that Thierry caught me on the 14th control and help to speed up my race. results

On the relay I was in excellent shape. It's a nice feeling when see someone before you, than you are with him, before him and after 2' you are looking for next plunder.I love relay:) results

Big congratulation for Polish Ladies Team for great bronze medal iiiiihhhhaaaaa...

Still second

After not so good relay on the WOC (men and women 14th), Polish Team went straight to Kongsberg to take part in World Military Orienteering Championship. Yesterday was a middle distance. I had an excellent race and was 2nd! (24'31”).Terrain here is easier than in Trondheim, you can run with higher speed, so it fit me well. The winner was Thierry Gueorgiou FRA (23'29”), third Andreas Kyburz SUI(25'03”). more results
My last important medal was on JWOC 2002: silver. Eigth years in elit class, five in military...

Pessimism race

From the second control everything went a little bit bad. Missing controls 2,3,6 made me angry. Than Marcus Maillegard caught me and helped me in making a good race (8-12th control; I ran after him with average distance of 21 meters?!). On the butterfly I did a next boom (50”): I lost Marcus and Pavlo Ushkvarok. I've reached spectator control alone. I was tired and angry. I thought my place is approximately 35th. I was 12th (still didn't know about it), so it was the race of my life! The last loop was really slow and I did a 3' mistake on 25th. My mind was broken.

I finished on the 18th place. It is my best place in the long distance.

Today during the breakfast I met an organizer, a guy who was staying at the 25th control during the long distance final. He remembered me. At first he heard a loud “ K...wa”, than twice I was close to the control, but still to far to see it. I spent there 3' -grrrr...

Here is one of the greatest analyzes of a gps race.

Still in the long game

The race was nice. I feel terrain good, but I still can't find my best flow.

Around the second control I could see many white papers from emit. I try to punch and don't lose my paper. Of course I lost it. For 20" I was trying to find my paper. I check at least 15, but not my. Grrr... emit emit...

I can't wait the final match.

I have new PB. In today's race I lost on the finish line 57” to the winner on World Champs (21place). Last year on WOC sprint it was 1'18” (14place), two years ago 1'26” (26place). I don't know what give me that, but I just trying to find some good thing in my little place disappointing.

Technical my race was good. I took mostly better route choices (except first two controls, where I lost 20”). But where was the afternoon flow? Left me so easy after morning race....

Congratulation for Hania (19place), Monika (39), and … OK, for Wojtas also (42).

See you on long
