4th day POM: Maps + pictures

There were no big surprises expected for the last day of the Portugal O-meeting. Thierry Gueorgiou and Dana Brozkova had a big lead after three days and they won their race easily.

In this Portugal O-meeting there were about 1500 competitors. A lot of Scandinavian runners were looking for some sun in Portugal. They were a bit unfortunate this year. Next year they have a bit more chance because POM 2008 will be in Algarve (South of Portugal - near Africa :-))

One of these scandinavians was Jörgen Martenson. It was nice to see this big champion in action in the stones. The first day he became 4th. About 2 minutes after Frans Laenen (De Wiet). This was a bit of a surprise however Frans is dominating in M45 class in Belgium.

Today however it was a battle between Jörgen Martenson and a portugese runner José Fernandes. It seemed that Jörgen would win with all his experience. But he mad a mistake at the second last control and lost the race.

Something maybe even more exciting was the Mass start. About a 1000 runners would have to start at the same time. Maybe this is why the organiser called it the rabbit day because I didn't see any rabbits out there (probably too cold). The start was at a nice location, just at the foot of a stony hill. It was a bit like a Jukola-start. The map itself was like the 2 first days. A lot of stones and not a single tree.
