Fiordland College entered the NZ Schools Cross Country Skiing Champs again this year. A good team of nine entered, including Douglas (though one entrant had to pull out at the last minute due to illness) The event consisted of an individual classic race, an individual freestyle sprint (freestyle means you can "classic" or "skate" ski). These two events were on Saturday. Sunday there was a 3 x 3km freestyle relay, though the first leg had to be classic skiing. A clever points system decided the overall result. I only went up on Sunday.
