Forne amazes in World Games

I am hopeful that the team will send us another update today, but from a brief look at the results it looks like Chris Forne has had a great run in the Middle Distance overnight finishing 20th. For so many years now Chris has been coming out of the orienteering wopwops to be right up there with the best in the world. It should no longer surprise us that he sandwiches his name between the likes of Kramov and Nordberg on the results board, but what an achievement! Solid results from the rest of the team as well.

And to acknowledge the winners; Minna Kaupi and Matthis Kyburz proved once again they are two of the brightest stars in the spot beating home Alexandersson and Hubman respectively. While in a coup for the lesser orienteering powers Ukraine (courtesy of Volynska) and Lithuania (courtesy of Aleliunas) filled the bronze medal positions. What a year the Ukrainians are having.Смачного!

The Fornicator, where he belongs, among the best in the world.
