Did anyone see yesterday's farcical mixed relay? South Africa, Greece, South Korea and Spain started with a man, followed by a woman, so they had quite a lead after the first leg. However, the four women then went into the wrong direction, got pulled out of the water by a jury boat and disqualified some minutes later :facepalm:

Nope, the women got the DSQ (jury need some time to take a decision), but the 4 man went in the wrong direction

That would make the whole thing seem more logical. The four men did of course reach the finish/exchange zone, so they cut a part of the course somewhere?

They cut around the middle of the leg, not rounding the turn mark

Wellbrock vs Paltrinieri for the 5k world title. Together for a large part of the race and in the end Wellbrock was simply too fast for Paltrinieri. Bronze for Romanchuk, it's basically like we're still in the pool :d

Finally the WC break for Sharon van Rouwendaal. As per usual, :NED salvaging what little is left in the marathon tournament. Happy to see her on top form on the Olympic distance again.

 

She was a bit helped by Cunha and Beck battling it out together, but that's what can happen in a three-way race to the finish.

Yeah, the finish was very exciting. The first 3 women finished within 1 second from each other after 10k. :hyper: 

 

My meeting at work was about to start at 10:00 and meetings with Dutch and German colleagues always start right on time., but I saw how tight the race was and the finish was at 10:03 or something like that, so I made ten people in the meeting wait for me with some stupid excuse, just so I could watch the finish. :zip:
