bludenz_2014_f_mayr2.jpgAlmost 200 runners form 12 countries took part on the first race of the 16 WMRA World Cup running an excellent and challenging course at Bludenz (AUT).
The running conditions were good for the runners, maybe just too hot for this part of the year when the runners are not used to the summer heath yet.

Austrian doctor Andrea Mayr dominated at the first stage of the Mountain Running World Cup. Andrea left her opponents behind soon after the start and joined the second group of the men. Her advantage was growing from kilometre to kilometre and was at the finish 2 minutes before the second and unbelievable 5 minutes before the third. Her success is not a surprise - in her long and reach sport career she got 6 gold medals at World and European Championships (mostly in uphill events; also ECh 2013), she was also the WMRA Grand Prix winner in 2010. Besides she is an excellent steeple chess and marathon runner. With this convincing victory she announced her attack to the next gold world’s medal.
