The last update to the blog was right before the relay, where Ali Crocker had an amazing opening leg, handing off to Sandra in 3rd (!) place. Sandra and Sam finished off, holding the team to an outstanding 15th place finish. This is the best relay performance by the US in modern orienteering times, and we're all quite proud of them.
The men (Eric, Boris, Giacomo) also had a solid race, with the lead switching several times in the battle against Canada. In the end, Canada got the best of us, but the men pulled off a 29th place finish, achieving their goal for the day.
