Ozzie


Well struggling to get my mojo up to post in the wake of the Aussie trip...mainly cause I have spent a fair bit of time in the last two days sorting out the endurance sport articles. This photo sort of sums things up for a me a bit. Scott McDonald making sure of his bearing at the start of the schools relay....6 of 9 pinestars went on to make a hash of this control in the later public event. As elites we need to pull our heads in and take care of business. Watching someone like Julian Dent orienteer its so simple...straight and hard, picking up the relevant features...but we have to remember this is built off a solid base of physical conditioning, good compass work and disciplined focussed navigation.
