Post here if you know of runners from English-speaking countries who are running. List team/leg, if possible. Obviously, there are a lot of Brits, so I am especially interested in North Americans, Irish, Australians, New Zealanders, South Africans, etc. Extra interested if they are running in the youth relay.

Robbie Anderson is running the second leg for GMOK 3. Bet you can’t get him to do an interview.

We'll get Robbie. :-)

Perhaps a burrito-related competition is in order? You could give the compass to whoever ate the most burritos in 2011, say.
Apr 27, 2019 6:54 PM # 
iansmith:
Wow, Linne 1 looks to be really strong if David Lingfors runs for Linne 2.
Apr 27, 2019 6:57 PM # 
iansmith:
Idea for competition: pick three teams by leg 3, winner is submission with smallest sum of places of those 3.
Apr 27, 2019 7:01 PM # 
iansmith:
Question for Boris and Cristina: what fraction of runners in 10mila are Swedish? To Cristina's point, do most runners for top teams compete for their local clubs, or do they form uberteams and sell their services to the highest bidder (e.g. Koovee). Do top orienteers change clubs many times over their careers?

It's also not clear to me how competitive Norwegian and Finnish teams are (or even which teams are from which nations, if they don't have "uu" in their team name). Do many non-Swedish teams have Swedish runners?
Apr 27, 2019 7:06 PM # 
iansmith:
Thanks for the question! Do you think the rain will affect the race very much? I suppose visibility might be reduced from headlamps a bit. Will this encourage people to change their tactics?

Win a Str8 Evo compass: send us your prediction for the first non-Nordic finisher of the Long Night (leg 4). Tiebreaker: leg time for that runner. Get your prediction in before the first runner finishes leg 3!

Q: If you put together a completely stacked team of the best 10 orienteers in the world, how much faster would they be than the winning team?
Apr 27, 2019 7:39 PM #

Duncan Coombs IL Tyrving for first non nordic long night finisher
Apr 27, 2019 7:40 PM # 
iansmith:
@wooders, @benmitchell - don't forget to submit finishing times in case of tie breaker.
Apr 27, 2019 7:42 PM # 
MChub:
Prediction: Kratov, 107 minutes

By the way, since you mentioned Maxim Omelchenko, I wonder if you know any other father-son pairs running in this relay? (Yuri is running leg 9 for Orion's 2nd team.)
Apr 27, 2019 7:45 PM #

I'm too tired to do research into the fastest 4th leg competition...
But do you have an update for us on your meatball count Cristina?

Bad start with Tampereen Pyrinto 4:20 down just after Boris profiled how great they were. What top teams will get Boris'd next??
Apr 27, 2019 7:52 PM #

Can’t believe it will be a dead heat between two non-Nordic runners... but if so; 108:53 - Alasdair McLeod (Lillomarka 1).
Apr 27, 2019 7:55 PM #

Nice moon by Emil Granqvist - looks like his battery was too heavy. What's up with the prewarning punches? I see Ravinen 1:33 behind Jarla.

Jarla sneakily winning the 2nd leg by 2 minutes, lol.

Still, Kratov's gonna have to gain 5 minutes on Järla... I think it's gonna depend on the Leg 4 for Järla, Timon Schweizer, and whether or not he can run consistently.

Interesting to see how the front mega pack of almost 20 people got broken up; now there are only about 6 runners very close to each other in the lead.

Apr 28, 2019 12:50 AM # 
iansmith:
Maybe Tiomila is like the WWE - completely staged. You generate some synthetic GPS tracks, put one illuminated TV control in the woods, and have hired runners in the appropriate shirts run by at particular times.

Cristina spilled the beans by joking that we're definitely not seeing the same illuminated TV control in the dark night.

I am curious what greasy food options are available in the arena at almost 4am. I see there are at least a few spectators awake, surely they are demanding korv?
Apr 28, 2019 2:23 AM # 
jSh:
@ken - the few spectators not sleeping in front of the big screen in the ice rink would not be let down. There are korv, hamburgare, sup och kanelbullar on offer, plus apples if you'd like something healthy.
I'll whisper that the offer in the live-production house is running slightly low on chocolate.
Greetings from the shepard of 26 radios controls...

Apr 28, 2019 5:07 AM #

So Boris is saying that if you're in a race against Matthias Kyburz, make a move on him earlier in the woods, because otherwise he'll burn you at the end.

Having followed 10mila on site I'm reading this on the way home in a minibus (not driving). Had a brief sighting of Cristina about to get busy with the Emily interview so no words exchanged.
Have to watch some of the English coverage when it's available on the web after coming home.
Apr 29, 2019 6:18 AM # 
BorisGr:
Thanks for following us during the night! Doing the web commentary for Tiomila is always a blast, but it's made way better by audience participation. Seems like the compass giveaway was a hit. Any more feedback for us? Positive or negative, feel free to post here or dm.

Also, a nice recap of tiomila from On the Red Line, from the British perspective: https://www.ontheredline.org.uk/news/tiomila2019-r...
