Map Sample WOC2018 Relay
Stable WOC Relay (Gene Beveridge Blog)
By ONZ Online Coordinator - Roger Woodroofe - Thu 16 Aug 2018

Stable runs from the New Zealand men’s relay team got us a 17th, 1 place down from the our good result in Scotland 3 years ago. We were very happy with the 16th at that World Champs because it was much better than previous years. This year felt somewhat different though, maybe because the expectations were higher. However, 17th is good, looking at the incredible strength of the competition, and reflects 3 stable runs, far different to last year’s disaster. Our Women’s team placed similarly, 19th.
