WOC Middle – mixed fortunes for the Israeli team   Leave a comment

Yesterday's middle distance at WOC held mixed fortunes for Pavel and Alexey. In qualification, Pavel ran a fast and solid race, even though he started next to last and was virtually alone in the forest, and qualified for the final from 11th place (as in the long distance). This was a great achievement, as the middle distance is in my opinion his weaker discipline.
Alexey, who was expected to be strongest in this race (and even then needed a perfect race for a chance of making the final), had a bad day, finally losing concentration at control 12 and making an 8-9 minute mistake, which put him next to last in his heat.
In Israel's first ever middle distance final, Pavel ran well and finished 25th – setting a target which we hope he can beat in the long final tomorrow. On current form, maybe a top 20 place?
