He was better.

My mental state and physical shape were really good. I wanted to win the competition and I did my best! However, I lost the battle by 15 seconds. It's not that little. Obviously, I could have avoided making a huge mistake to the 12th control (1min), I could have avoided hesitations to the controls no. 14, 19, I could have kept the direction to the 21st control more precisely, I could have taken a better route choice to the 25th control, I could....... but I didn't!

And in sport (orienteering, especially) the winner is not the one who could, but the one who did!

All in all, I am very satisfied:
that I didn't hesitate to run fast,
that I took the challenge,
that I wasn't afraid of losing,
that I proved myself I'm able to compete on such a high level as he is.
