It was the easiest round for teams and judges so far since only the Russian Sky Panthers Barkli lost one point due to an incomplete formation. It could have been different though, as the judges were apparently more lenient with the interpretation of "grip visibility" this time. Especially several of the inside grips at Block 12 (Lego - Eye), the Donuts and Cats were simply not visible due to the camera angle. There is no doubt that those grips were on the legs, however, the standards and interpretations had been different in other situations.
The Barkli Sky Panthers were also unlucky that their first Donut of Block 10 did not count as a scoring formation. A few frames of a complete Donut were not good enough for the Russian team, while the Golden Knights did not need a longer holding time to get their 21st point as a scoring formation, which was a Cat that lasted for a frame or two.

She did a great job in 4way and filled the open 8way slot just as well. ISB Air training and competition had prepared her for the Paratec-Saar challenge in 4way. However, she really did not have much 8way experience, especially not on a performance level that won the 4th place at the World Cup.
EADS did not match the 14.8 average of the World Cup, but the 13.0 average at the national championships was still an impressive result. In fact, after the first six "warmup rounds" for Petra van Overveld, EADS was right on World Cup pace in the last four rounds (15 - 17 - 16 - 14). World Cup team Südwest finished in 2nd place with a 10.5 average, after the 7th place at the World Cup with a 10.7 average.
