Metro League 2018 concludes

Some of these people are taller than others

The Big Foot Div 2 were narrowly defeated at Boggabilla Reserve on Sunday despite being minor premiers, whilst Div 1 concluded an unbeaten season and collected the trophy. Outside the team, good runs from promising youngsters Jock Davis and Ben Hanley had Mark Shingler and Andy Simpson checking out their Div 2 options.

In Div 4, the team also kept its record for the season and didn't trouble the scorer. Div 5 beckons.

Big Feet kids rock Sydney North Schools O

Another fine winter day in Sydney and three Big Foot kids were out representing their schools at the Sydney North Schools Orienteering champs and they ran brilliantly.

Jamie Marsh came second on the boys course, beaten by one of his Mowbray PS year-mates but also providing a great target for a third Mowbray competitor. After that Mowbray School trifecta Big Foot Oliver McFarlane took out 4th and also helped a fellow Epping Heights PS mate into 5th.

On the girls course Lyra Simpson was the clear winner, but starting first did little to help her Lane Cove PS team mates.

Finns and fresh powder dominate Ski-O 2018

The powerful Russian combo of Fedor Ishakov and Marina Ishakova produced another great Ski-O event this weekend with perfect weather on Sunday morning after an overnight storm had dumped 20cm of fresh powder on the trails. This meant that the option to cut across the trail network was definitely in play and was used by the more successful skiers.

Bart Badges !

Bart finally cracked orienteering today and placed 3rd in M21 at the NSW Champs, marking the most significant achievement of his life. Chris Froome commented  “It’s an amazing position for us,” Froome said. “Bart’s in the form of his life and fully deserves it."

“I don’t think we quite expected that going into today’s stage. I think everyone probably expected Alpe d’Huez to be the more decisive stage, and it might very well still be, but it puts us in a fantastic position ahead of tomorrow’s stage [to Alpe d’Huez].” he continued.
