Finally medal from elite relay! Bronze! But first things first...

We decided to change our tactics this year and our team's set-up looked like: Pasza, me, Preziu. Pasza did a really good job and came to the changeover as 5th just behind 2 other runners. I started fast and was alone already to the 1st control. I didn't understand the area close to the 2nd one and got caught by K. Wołowczyk. I was leading, but towards the 4th control I got into some heavy bushes and he overhauled me. Then, I just followed him and was sure there were no forkings there (judging from my control descriptions: 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42). How shocked I was when at the 8th control he got to control no. 50, punched it and ran away! I lost some precious seconds and couldn't see him anymore. Then, I overtook the Czech runner from Arkady Raszków and missed the 10th control (shitty area...). The last loop of the course was OK for me (technically very easy) and I finished on the 3rd place, 2'40 ahead of the 4th place. Unfortunately, I twisted my right ankle again at the second last control (despite having put tight Leukoplasts on it) and couldn't even do the post-race cooldown. My season is over and I have to heal it properly... But come back to the exciting relay! After my race I was really disappointed, cause I knew that if we would not get a medal, it would have been my biggest fault. Fortunately, we had Łukasz as our anchorman and even though he was caught by Rino two times, he was still able to run away from him - impressive! And this way he secured the first ever men's elite relay medal for our home club!!!

Team: 3rd, 5'32 behind WKS Śląsk Wrocław.
Individually: 13th (of all the legs), 3'08 behind Kowal.
