foliforovWMTBOC 2016: Foliforov and Vinogradova got the gold in the Middle Distance

Anton Foliforov and Olga Shipilova Vinogradova, both from Russia, were the winners of the Middle Distance final, in the second day of the World MTB Orienteering Championships 2016. In the younger categories, France deserves to be highlighted for its two gold medals achieved in M20 and W17 classes.
The Middle Distance of the World MTB Orienteering Championship WMTBOC 2016, held this morning in Valongo do Vouga, hardly won't be erased from Vojtech Ludvik's memory. The Czech was the first to start, and also the first to finish his course; and with a time that would prove to be amazing, standing at 47:18 for a distance of 19.3 km. The truth is that he had to have nerves of steel to withstand the pressure of leading almost until the very end, just beaten by the Russian Anton Foliforov, the penultimate to start, and that would record a new best time by 43 seconds. Placed 3rd was another Russian athlete, Ruslan Gritsan, 47 seconds slower than his teammate. With this result, Foliforov kept the Middle Distance's world title, reaching his second gold medal in these World Championships after winning the Sprint that opened the competition last Monday.
