Ingwersen and Davey Australia’s best in the World Masters Sprint finals

World Masters Orienteering Championships Sprint Final
5 August 2013

The most outstanding performers in the A sprint finals at the World Masters Orienteering Championships overnight were Ann Ingwersen of Parawanga in the ACT who was 4th in W70, only 4 seconds behind the bronze medal winner, and Debbie Davey of Waggaroos in NSW who was 12th in W55A. A big disappointment in W80A was former WMOC champion Maureen Ogilvie who clocked the 3rd fastest time on the day but was ineligible as she miss-punched in the previous day’s qualifying sprint. The best of the men were Ross Barr (Garingal), 28th in M65A, and Ron Junghans (Garingal) 29th in M70A.
In the B finals there were brilliant performances by James Lithgow (Garingal) who won M55B, with Alex Davey (Waggaroos) 16th, and by Bert Elson (Australopers), 11th in M60B.
