World Cup Sprint declared void because of punching problem

Today’s Sprint race in the World Cup, held in Lysekil, Sweden, has been declared void after problems with the touch-free punching system being used. There were problems at several controls due – it is reported – to them being programmed in the wrong mode, leading to a number of competitors either losing several seconds in re-visiting the controls or failing to have their punch recorded.

On the basis of the provisional results, this outcome was particularly disappointing for Yannick Michiels, Belgium who would have recorded the first World Cup win ever by a Belgian athlete. Tove Alexandersson, Sweden would have taken her fourth World Cup win of the season.

The World Cup continues tomorrow with a Middle Distance race at Munkedal in Sweden, in the region where next year’s World Championships will be held.
