Four Medals for Switzerland on the Long Distance Race

No new names on the podium for the men at their title races over the long distance: both Swiss, Joey Hadorn and Thomas Curiger won gold and silver. As on the previous day, bronze went to the Swede Isac von Krusenstierna. On the junior women’s side, the Finn Anna Haataja won her first gold medal ever in front of the two Swiss, Valérie Aebischer and Sophie Bachmann. The Swiss dominated both first days at the Junior World Orienteering Championships in their own country.
