Also H/D20 was WRE.

An other favourit in the women-class was the German junior runner Esther Doetsch. She told on her website that she was very motivated to run the Sprint champ in Bottrop. She started very fast, but her race also finished very fast. When she was running for 40'', she wanted to pass a biker. But the biker changed her direction. Esther Doetsch fell down on the ground and stayed there for 3min to recover. Finally she still finished her qualification run. But her foot was too painfull to start in the final and in the long distance race on sunday. But participating at jwoc will be no problem. (source)

On the first picture we see the young (nearly 18years old) German runner Marie Winkler, who won the longdistance competition.

On the second picture: Stephanie Killmann from Austria. She is also selected for jwoc in australia.
