Today the Australians bounced back with Belinda qualifying for the finals and better results all round for the rest. This meant that the squad headed back to barracks with more positive and cheerful attitude. "Today I felt like I could orienteer again" was a quote that reflected the attitude of all.
Most enjoyed the courses and the more open terrain than they experienced in the long. Obviously there was an element of disappointment with Ian and Kurt missing the final by 40 and 44 seconds respectively and errors by the others adding to their frustration of not making the final.
Frustrations aside it was impressive how the whole squad bounced back after the disappointment of the long day and dug in and had a real go at their respective courses. Well done team. No squibs and quitters in this squad.
