13.07.2013  Awesome week finished

The goal of the organiser was to organise an alltime WOC. On Saturday evening it was time to ponder how they succeeded.

13.07.2013  Victorious day for Norwegian women

At last Norway got a medal in Vuokatti, when women did a top performance and won the relay. The start of the relay was very promising for the home audience when Venla Niemi finished the first leg on the top position followed by Great Britain and Switzerland.

13.07.2013  Men’s Relay gold went for Russia

Within 24 hours, Leonid Novikov gained two World Championships as Russia won men’s Relay. Yesterday’s Middle Distance Champion was changed as the starter of the team at the last minute. The second leg was run by Valentin Novikov and the victory was anchored by Dmitriy Tsvetkov.

13.07.2013  At Vuokatti Bowling Centre also a pool table

Right before the holiday centre Katinkulta’s gate on the right in Vuokatti, there is the popular bowling centre called BowlCircus Vuokatti. It is more than a bowling hall.

12.07.2013  Pinja Mäkinen the most precise and fast

TempO, which requires reasoning speed, seems to agree with the Finns. First ever gold medal was won by Pinja Mäkinen. Also the bronze medal was won by a Finn, Lauri Kontkanen. Silver medal went to young Swede Marit Wiksell, who climbed to the podium after a fifth place in the qualification.

12.07.2013  Leonid Novikov surprised all

Russian Leonid Novikov became suddenly the men’s Middle Distance World Champion. He surprised the audience, his team, himself – and the great favourite Thierry Gueorgiou by 9 seconds. Gueorgiou did a mistake when going to the second control as he didn’t notice the trail on the terrain that was on the map.
