In this years Norwegian FootO champs relay Hadeland O-lag had a “SkiO” team at the start line. Our goal was to get in the top 1/3 and thereby get a diploma. With 115 teams at the start line this would mean top 37. That should be possible, even though we probably were the team with the least number of foot-O races or specific training sessions this year.
Ove Sætra ran a good first leg and handed over to Øyvind Watterdal at 18th place. Øyvind started his leg very well and at first intermediate control he was 16. Unfortunately he made a major mistake and lost some time to the finish, and sent me out on the last leg on 33rd place. I made also a big mistake to the second control and was down at 41st place at he intermediate control. Luckily I had a good finish and after a sprint with 6-7 other teams we ended on 34th place. So we reach the top 1/3. Sadly we realised that it was only the top 30 that received prizes.
Anyway we made a quite good result with more than 10 minutes time loss for me and Øyvind. Next year should top 20 be possible.
