Vanessa Round (SA) and Julian Dent (NSW) did well to finish about a minute down in their respective sprint races in Switzerland yesterday.  As only the 40 top ranked runners got a start in the World Cup sprint held on the same day, these fields were quite strong and full of runners from a variety of countries.

Some of our team members will join in the Swiss and Finnish middle and long WOC selection races mid week.
