Silva Medal 2019

Progress Scores after Australian Long

After seven events that contribute to the determination of the winner of the Silva Medal 3 orienteers have achieved the maximum points (24) with at least 6 wins. They are Robin Uppill and Bruce Arthur with 7 wins and Stephen Craig with 6 wins. 6 other orienteers can achieve 6 wins with 1 or 2 wins from the remaining 2 events.

Therefore the Silva Medal winner will be determined on a countback.

With 9 events used to calculate the Silva Medal this year the maximum points can be achieved with less that 6 victories provided significant points are achieved in events other than those won. Theoretically, 22 other orienteers can reach maximum points at this time. These orienteers will have less than 6 wins and therefore will have to carry at least one negative winning margin, making their chances of a win possible but slim.

The average winning margin for the current leading three orienteers are:

  • Stephen Craig 28%

  • Bruce Arthur 19%

  • Robin Uppill 3%

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

Progressive scores will be announced at the presentation for each event providing time allows between finalisation of the event and the presentation to carry out the calculations.
