Last weekend were the last selection races for the World Orienteering Championships held close to Halden. I got sick 8 days before the competitions and sadly I was still sick in the weekend and had to skip the long distance race. I felt a bit better, and had noting to lose on giving the middle distance a try on Sunday, and gave all I had. My orienteering was good mostly all the way, but half way through the race (15-20min into it) I physically hit the wall and my power was out. Ended 7th by the Norwegians with 3min up to the winner. It was not enough for a WOC-ticket: when the WOC selections came on Tuesday I was selected as reserve for the middle distance and 2nd reserve for the relay.
