22 Australians through to WMOC sprint finals

22 Australians have reached the sprint finals, to be held tomorrow, at the World Masters Orienteering Championships in Hungary.

The Australian highlight of qualification day, held in the old town of Pecs, was Jim Russell’s win in heat 1 of M50. He will have a good medal chance tomorrow, as will Hermann Wehner, who qualified second in M85.

Other Australians who look to be in with a good chance of a final result in the top ten, or perhaps better, include Susanne and Jenny Casanova (4th and 6th in W35), Ann Ingwersen (third in W65-2), Debbie Davey (5th in W50-1) and Grant McDonald (fifth in M50-2).
