Sprint sprint sprint!

The World Orienteering Champs kick off tomorrow with the Sprint Qualification and Sprint Final races.

Up for Team USA in tomorrow morning's qual races:
9:10 Hannah
9:18 Hillary
9:27 Alex
10:07 Ross
10:18 Will
10:32 Giacomo
(Times are Swedish local, six hours ahead of Boston)

The runners will be divided into three heats and the top fifteen from each heat will move on to the afternoon's final. The races are short (13-15 minutes for the winners) and take place in the urban area of Strömstad itself. Take a look at an old, 1:15000 map (pdf) covering the city.
