JWOC Selection Event – Long Distance

After the technical navigation amid the gorges of Smedley Station in yesterday’s middle distance, today’s long distance was much more about route choice around and across the gorges. In the women’s race, however, the result was the same – a nearly 10 minute win for Danielle Goodall. Sonia Hollands, after a disappointing middle came through strongly for 2nd place 5 minutes ahead of Alice Tilley. In the men, Shamus Morrison followed up yesterday’s 3rd place with a 2 and a half minute margin over Matt Goodall, with Tommy Hayes in 3rd place. A feature of the men’s course was a 3km leg from 4 to 5, and it is argueable that this is where Shamus won it as he recorded the fastest split by spurning the obvious track route along the ridge to drop into the flat valley to the north.
