I wanted to write the summary of competition a few days ago, but I was waiting official results. Firstly I will start as hard as I missed to participate in a orienteering competition: half year has passed since I finished my last orienteering race: Moldavian Orienteering Championship Relay, where me with Roma Ciobanu and Fala Sergiu took the second place. In this half year three months I was in USA, after that I came back in Moldova but sometimes I was referee, sometimes I was busy with other projects. So do you can see my desire to participate was extremely high.
Behold, November 22 Chisinau hosted the first stage of the Winter Cup. Date of competition was selected perfectly, because the day before I landed in Moldova after a nice trip to Russia, Georgia and Armenia. I had only one day available to regain my powers. The evening before the race I read whole information and chose equipment for next day. I don't know why but in competion's day I was in a good mood, probably because I was happy to meet my friends! Certainly, meeting with my main competitors in this Cup, Roma and Sergiu (don't displease other participants from this category)! Probably were more sources of happiness like: Harry's participation (athlete from Sweden), television, good mood of participants, Sergiu's GoPro, Garmin SmartWatches. I saw a different face of orienteering in Moldova!
Now, let's retail about race: we from Masters' category, so we Masters (how we love to say), we had mission to find 25 checkpoints from 30. First 3 checkpoints almost from us chose same. After that our variants begun be different. From all competitors I saw near me just Roma, Sergiu, and Victor! Yeaahh, I forgot to say - finding the image was the same drama as a year before: ten athletes sitting near control point, looking around and try to find where they are, even on building is written Trandafirilor Street :D. Another process which irritated me was turning of map, after drawing letter! Over two checkpoints I met Sergiu, he found faster the picture and go next, at the next checkpoint I was faster, because the lamp which was under roof gave much hassle for Sergiu! Sergiu is truth? Besides, I ran alone, sometimes I crossed with participants from other categories. The job was going more easy because remained fewer picture. However, how I can finish my race without an amazing moment: I don't remember which checkpoint was: there were many children and reporters from JurnalTV. I noticed that those who passed the control point were interviewed by reporters. In my mind I said - please, don't ask me, because I knew 5 seconds can be important. And only I draw letter on my card, that I woke up with the microphone. I gave the microphone aside and said loudly I can't answer because I hurry up. Sorry for this, but I really was hurry up at last 100m I didn't see someone in finish area and I wonder is this possible? Yes, it's possible from Masters I was the first at finish. I took 140 points and I'm very happy for this result.
After race, I had the second change to give an interview. So this time I approached to microphone and answered at all questions!
Below is attached interview and track map of Roma, Sergiu and me. Also I attached the video from Sergiu's GoPro Camera. Who would watch how Sergiu ran through Chisinau.
