Australian Championships Perisher – Results


2013_AUS_Championship_Distance_Freestyle-UPDATEDThe 2013 Australian Open and Junior Championships finished up on the weekend at Perisher with the Classic Sprint and Distance Freestyle events. The weather held off until the finals of Saturday’s sprints, then it was a wild and woolly day for Sunday’s distance races. International skiers topped the podium in all events, with Victor Gustafsson from Sweden winning both the Sprint A-Final and the 10km Freestyle for the men, while on the women’s side USA cleaned up with Lauren Fritz in the Sprint and Jessica Yeaton in the 5km Freestyle. The distance races were shortened because of the wind and drifting snow on the tracks.

For the Australians Anna Trnka had a great weekend, winning both the junior and open category Australian titles on both days. Callum Watson was the first Australian in the Sprint and Alex Almoukov took the title in the 10km. Damon Morton won the junior sprint title, and Hamish Roberts the junior 10km. The Sprint time trial results and most of the Distance results are posted below in PDF format. There were some minor anomalies with the final Sprint results, and also the U12 and U14 categories in the Distance events are missing, and these will be posted later.
