Discussion: Emily Kemp racing well at JWOC long
in: Orienteering; News;
currently in 2nd pace at First radio
Looks like tough racing out there... Go Emily!
dropped to 7th but podium and medal still in reach. hope that knee holds out Kempster
Looks like 15 min error from Tove. Wow!
what's happening? gaaaaah
the suspense!! no result for Lucy from GBR either so if we go off of Barb's tweet then maybe just maybe Emily is in a bronze at the moment.
I am far too sleep deprived to handle this tension. I am positively giddy!
Tears of Joy! Maddening to be unable to get updates online!!!!!
whoa, staying tuned, really super exciting!!
We have an emergency phone number for Meg. Maybe we should use it. :)
In the age of tweets, can someone confirm something....
Mary Jo, as the person paying Meg's phone bill, feel free to call her and let us know!
I am going to wear out the refresh button on my browser
Anyone know the top North American finish at JWOC in the past?
Samantha Saeger was 8th in the long in 1999...as far as I know that is the best.
From Barb @MeghanRance @orienteeringusa Emily kemp number three woman. Final.
Woohooooo! Congratulations Emily! Way to fight in training through a sore knee the last few weeks. Well deserved! A great day for Canadian orienteering!
FANTASTIC!!!!! Way to go Emily!!! I am so proud and excited for you!!!!
Wahoo!! So exciting, congrats Emily!! Podium!!!
We believed in you, Emily. Savor every moment. Congratulations.
Congratulations! Wow--this is an incredible results! Way to go Emily!
Congrats and felicitations!
Congratulations Emily, years of hard work paid off!!!
Also, does anybody know if the Kirsi Nurmi that won is the same one that did a high school exchange year in Edmonton in 2009/2010 because if so it would be cool to say that a former EOOC member is a world champ.
Congratulations Emily!!!! That is Fantastic!!!!! so proud!
Wow, wicked news to start the day! Congrats to Emily and the rest of the Kemps!
Congratulations. After hours and hours of training, no-one deserved it more.
@El Chucko - well spotted. The winner indeed is a former EOOC member (according to my source, Marilyn Edmunds, who knows everything about EOOC ;-)
(I notice you could actually beat her back in those days ;-)
Wow - huge congratulations!!!
From Emily's profile..
"What are your 2012 orienteering goals?
To go all out for the top 6 finish at JWOC in Slovakia this year…"
Pretty perfect day then, a former EOOC member and a Canadian in the top 3. Congratulations to all!
Also AZ you are right I have stayed the same speed while Kirsi and Emily keep getting faster
Hard to understand. So cool. Congratulations Emily!
Go ahead and bask in the glory you've earned today. Then, look at the splits and realize that you beat the winner on several of your legs, so set your sights high in the days ahead. You've got what it takes.
" Hard to understand. So cool. Congratulations Emily! "
as someone said: "Training hard, win easy"
Awesome Emily, just awesome.
Fantastic! Way to go Emily!
Thanks for the links to the maps and analysis.
The terrain is so reminiscent of Kettle Moraine in Southern Wisconsin. It offers so many big holes to read - which also makes relocation SO hard. The 3 distinct vegetation types only added to the challenge. The men had a fork, the women did not - interesting.
Some comments from Emily are on the Team Canada Blog
Any word on the medal ceremony?
CONGRATS Emily! Great job!!
Listen to Emily on CBC Ottawa
(the archived interview should be on the right).
No word on the medal ceremony. I'm assuming they'll put it with the middle one?
Congratulations to Emily and to Canada!
The medal ceremonies are all held on Thursday in Kosice. No word yet on the flower ceremony.
Emily Ross said they needed to buy lipstick and learn how to make wreaths ;)
Need to get Ross Smith there with his vuvuzela
See if you can find some maple leaves for Emily's wreath. So awesome.
Awesome!!!! Congrats Emily!!!
This is really exciting! Way to go, Emily.
Good to see this getting press, and enjoyed the CBC Ottawa radio interview. I know the OOC has done a good job of getting coverage in the past, glad to see it continue.
Read an interview with World Champion Thierry Gueorgiou about his reaction to Emily Kemp's JWOC bronze medal on the Team Canada Blog
Thanks to Hammer for the great interview!
What a great interview! Everyone should go like it over at World of O because with the time zones our articles seem to get a bit buried.
emily down 10 sec at first radio
another fine result though I suspect she will have had higher goals. will be curious to see the splits and maps as it doesnt appear anybody ran clean either that or Tove started slowly to get her confidence back. well done Emily and Molly.
Emily...I cannot imagine the pressure you felt today. Congratulations on putting a solid run in! Be proud!
Two Canadians in the A final. A great day for Canada. Congrats! I'm looking forward to seeing the splits and maps too...looked like a lot of people were fumbling out there.
Possibily a 3 minute miss between 1.3 km and 2.8 km.
Another non-European medal though in the mens'. Gold at that.
I can imagine all the Swedish women breathing a huge sigh of relief when Emily crossed the finish line today. Emily has made her mark on international orienteering and she will be a contender for the podium from now on. Looks like a good run today except for a possible mistake on one control. Will be interested in seeing the splits and hearing from the Kempster about her race--two sisters in the A final. Must have been a thrill. Thanks for making all of us so proud, Miss Emily. And Molly, congratulations on making the A final. Your time is respectable and shows that the Kemps are a force to be reckoned with.
Great relay by the Cdn girls! Congratulations!!!
New Zealand currently in 4th in the men's!
