The knockout sprint at the European Orienteering Championships in Italy takes place in the old town of Vicenza. The course consists of narrow alleys and many runners moving at the same time.

In the quarter-finals, there was also an accident on the men's side where Norwegian star Kasper Fosser collided with Swiss Joey Hadorn and was forced to retire from the competition.

"I think it's unpleasant. There are a lot of people out there, it's quite a big risk for us runners. It feels very uncomfortable what happened in the quarter, says Swedish star Tove Alexandersson to SVT Sport after the semi-final and continues:

"I think it's a bit too messy. It's hard to run and there's a lot to keep track of but it's the same for everyone.

Tove Alexandersson easily made it to the final together with Hanna Lundberg and Sara Hagström.
