Bronze in World Uni Champs middle

Today I took a bronze medal in the World University Orienteering Championships middle distance in Sweden. I was really disappointed with my performance in the sprint (12th place), so I was eager to do well today. I actually had the worst possible start, losing almost 90 seconds on the 2nd control, but I ran well after that and climbed back up to 3rd place, about 1 minute behind Matthias Merz. Now I am looking forward to the relay competition tomorrow.
