    Een woordje over de finale die binnen de Mil is gelopen. Het kampioenschap lag open daar de twee militaire toppers Geert Simkens (2/4L) en Bart Delobel (6de groep CIS) niet van de partij waren. Veteraan, maar nog altijd scherp als een mes, Yvan Vis, bleek na twee dagen met 1" sterker te zijn dan Gunther Deferme. Met als derde Jo Linten. 4 en 5 werden aangevuld met respectievelijk Polleke Goossens en Nico Schrans. Bij de vrouwen won ook een veterane, Sonia Genten. Dag 1 werd betwist omgeving Elsenborn en dag 2 op Weerterbergen. Resultaten beschikbaar op mil ol.
    Ondergetekende hoopt volgend jaar zelf een resultaat te kunnen neerzetten in de finale Mil Ol.

    we houden ook vooral het nieuwe talent bij Hamok in de gaten: Benjamin Anciaux. Hij werd al mooi 7e in deze wedstrijd.

    weet er iemand waarom Heli Jukola en Maria Rantala niet gestart zijn in de finale?

    Op de Finse website was alleszins na de qualificatie al aangekondigd dat beiden de finale niet gingen lopen.
    Heli Jukola had nog last van griep en kiest ervoor om op de middle distance te focussen.
    Ook Rantala verkoos om de finale van de lange afstand niet te lopen. Haar conditie is op dit moment niet goed genoeg voor deze lange afstand. De qualificatie (die iets korter was) was een goede kennismaking met het terrein en een goed contact met competitie. Ook zij zal wel aantreden op de middle distance.

    Hieronder de website waar dit geschreven stond, maar translate.google.com is wel aan te raden om het zelf eens te lezen.

    Jukola en Rantala
