Sestrierre, Thursday 8th August (By GO correspondent, Chris)
Two qualifiers now completed for the long distance final on Saturday. Such great orienteering. Forests relatively runnable but it is strange seeing the paraphernalia of skiing in the summer together with running up and down ski pistes (no snow). Access to the Final assembly area on Saturday is by chairlift only. James is 7th overall in his heat, and I am 4th overall in my heat, so there is everything to play for.
