Silva Medal 201

Progressive Scores After Australian Medium Championships

The Silva Medal competition for 2017 is based on points for participating and placing in the Australian Championships ( Sprint, Medium and Long), and the Australian 3-Days Championships (each day considered as a separate event), (Elite and A classes in M/W16 and above).

Points are scored for completing a course as follows: 1st4; 2nd3; 3rd2 and 1 for finishing, 1 point if there are less than 4 starters.

Progressive scores after the Australian 3-Days, Sprint and Medium Championships are published below.

The Statistician normally publishes runners who have amassed 20 points and above, so for this progressive list runners who have 16 points are included. These runners can theoretically achieve 20 points.

In recent years there has usually been a number of runners who have scored maximum points (this year 24 points) in 6 events. So as it stands, only the two following runners can obtain maximum points:

  • Ann Ingwersen

  • Tara Melhuish.

Of course if both these runners fail to win the Australian Long Championships, then the Silva Medal will be won by someone reasonably high in the list below.
