Belgian runners @ World cup (NOC)
With this result, he was worth a 61th position. But in the resultslist he's disqualified. After checking his splittimes and tracktrack-route, we can't find any mispunched control. So probably he took the butterfly in the wrong direction?
On the gps tracking, you can review the whole race from Thomas again and analyse every little mistake that he made. When he arrived at the butterfly, we can see that he started in the wrong direction. He ran from control 11 immediately towards 24, but we also can see that he realized his mistake and turned back (changed his direction before punching). But maybe this was again the wrong direction?

Today the runners participated in the NOC relay competition. Sweden was outstanding and won 3 (H21, D21 and H20) out of 4 relay competitions. For Belgium only Thomas was present, so obviously there was no relay team.
