During last morning of WMMTBOC2013, Czech Republic was the big winner of Mixed Relay full of emotion. With Olga Vinogradova in top form now, the Russian team got the lead on the first leg, but Jiri Hradil, first and finally Krystof Bogar, were stronger than Ruslan Gritsan and Anton Foliforov, recovering from the initial disadvantage of three and a half minutes to get the victory in 2:15:52, against 2:19:46 of their direct rivals. Great sensation of the season, the Finns - with Susanna Laurila , Tuomo Lahtinen and Pekka Niemi - ended on the third place, ten seconds behind the Russians.
