THE GREAT SURVIVOR

After seeing off a challenge by Alex Villa (COL) when the Axeman visited on Sunday, Chikyong Ha (KOR) again found himself facing elimination when yesterday's all day battle saw him slip 2km behind Kinga Masztalerz (NZL2). But then fortune smiled on him.This morning, Masztalerz set off at pace – and took a wrong turn. She realised her mistake too late and at 6am this morning, was 700m behind. Ha lives to fight another day. Ha is now fixing his harness, after a rough, cross wind take-off yesterday. His team said: 'He is going well and his feet are slowly healing. He was quite mad when he went behind yesterday, but we told him about Kinga's mistake this morning and he was kind of happy. It's very unfortunate for her, though.'
