Tommy Hayes is the only one of the three strong Kiwi contingent to make the final of the middle distance at the European Orienteering Championships. In steep and rocky terrain near Ticino, Tommy ran a steady qualification to finish in 8th place in Heat 2, 2 minutes 20 s down on heat winner Florian Howald of Switzerland. In Womens Heat 1 Laura Robertson missed out by 44 seconds, finishing in 20th place, while Tim Robertson dropped major time at controls 6 and 7 to finish well off the pace in Mens Heat 1. However, Tim was not alone as many of the more fancied athletes also missed the cut, including only 1 of the 6 Swedish men qualifying for the final.
