Silva Medal 2019

Progress Scores after Australian Easter Carnival in Perth

After the five events in Western Australia that contribute to the determination of the winner of the Silva Medal the list of orienteers below (but not all of them) can theoretically achieve six victories with four more events to be conducted in September/October at the Oceania Championships. That is, they have already achieved two or more victories.

Three orienteers have achieved five victories. They only need to achieve one victory from the remaining four events to achieve six victories and score the maximum points. Other orienteers on the list will need to achieve a greater number of victories to achieve the maximum points.

It is highly likely that there will be more than one orienteer who will achieve maximum points and it is therefore expected that that the countback process based on average winning margins will apply.

The average winning margin for the leading three orienteers are:

  • Stephen Craig 23%

  • Bruce Arthur 16%

  • Robin Uppill 1%

Robin has had some narrow wins. Both Stephen and Bruce have had some good wins.
