Australian Champs Wind Up


Aidan teamed up with Toby Wilson and Daniel Hill for the Senior Boys Relay and the trio representing NSW brought the team home in first place (behind the visiting New Zealand team but they do not qualify as a State for the purposes of the carnival - or at all for that matter...).  The carnival was the first representative outing for Duncan Currie and Hugh Gingell who joined Melissa Annetts, Alex Kennedy, Aidan, Toby and Daniel and the remainder of the team in representing the State with distinction.  Well done juniors!

The weekend action was the Australian Middle Distance and the Australian Relays.  The three amigos, travelling as a pack, were in action with the 40 plus other Garingal members.  There were some great results and some interesting stories.  One Garingal member, who shall remain nameless, completed the course but omitted to punch the finish control and registered as an mp.  A very large and healthy looking Kangaroo bounded straight through a mass of competitors heading for the spectator control and seemed to navigate the granite boulders with ease by just jumping over them.  There was also a go pro model helicopter to capture the mass start of the relay from the air. Paul Savolainen, on a return visit from Finland, cleaned up the W45A to finish first in the division. Dean Gingell had a great run to finish 2nd in the MOpenB, Huon Wilson posted a strong 2nd in the M21A and treasurer Istvan Kertesz mixed it with the elites in M21E.  

Check out the full results for the middle distance and the relays.  Best of all was that it was an enjoyable carnival and we thank the ACT Orienteering Association for organising the week long event.
