Long Final Wrap up La Croix du Nivolet – La Feclaz, Savoie Grand Revard

The Long Final is decided for both the Men and the Women.

Julian Dent has finished in 24th position in his first Long Distance Finals race for the World Orienteering Championships. Dent has always had an ambition to compete in the Long Final at WOC and this is his first attempt. A top 25 finish is to be congratulated and can now be built on. He has recently moved to live and train in Sweden to continue to improve his Orienteering and hopefully produce even better results in the future.

For Thierry Gueorgiou this has been a long time ambition to win the Long Distance race and great to see him win on his home turf.

In the womens race Sweden continues to dominate in 1st and 3rd places and the Czech Republic an ever strengthening team.
