In M21E Ruslan Glebov started almost 4 minutes ahead of Emil Svensk. Both made a few mistakes in the forest but they still ran good enough to keep their positions as number 1 and 2. Ruslan was very happy at the finish, almost like a child celebrating his birthday.

In W21E there was no question about who the winner would be. Tove Alexandersson had a big lead at the start and in the end, she won with over 30 minutes. In second spot was Sara Hagström IFK Göteborg. At one of the controls out in the forest she made a big jump from cliff, more than 3 meters, right in front of our photographer. Unfortunately, he wasn’t quick enough to catch her.

Both Tove and Ruslan seems to be in great shape and they are excited for WOC in Norway.

–I’m in quite good shape, said Ruslan Glebov in his post-run interview.

–It’s a big difference between running for one week straight compared to just one race. My legs are a bit tired and now I’m going to enjoy some easy running on paths the coming weeks before WOC, said Tove.

The elder juniors were a bit more confused than necessary. Axel Granqvist OK Ravinen made a lot of mistakes and got a bit worried about the boys chasing him. It was a nice feeling for him to finally cross the finish line. Fastest on today’s stage was August Mollén who was over 7 minutes faster than Axel and advanced from 5th to 2nd position during the final stage.

In W20E Isa Envall IK Hakarpspojkarna didn’t have her best technical performance today. Still Anine Lome Hamar OK wasn’t able to take advantage of the situation and the girl from IKHP could take her first ever victory at O-Ringen.
