Nothing has changed in the Open Class. Hayabusa Defence and France Maubeuge decided to leave the final decision for a real showdown in Round 10 and tied their scores once again in Round 9 with 30-pointers each. Hayabusa is still up by one point.
The Sky Panthers added another highscore for a single round to their account with the 32-pointer. This makes it a total of four sole highscores for the Russian team. Hayabusa has only two sole highscores and France not even one at all. It is still too late for the Sky Panthers, the gold medal position seems to be out of reach. On the other hand, it is quite interesting to see that France is still only one single point behind the first place without any sole highscores at all. France Maubeuge tied the highest score for a single round in Rounds 6, 7 and 8.
The final showdown is next. Solly Williams witnessed the semifinals in Stupino for the NSL audience.
The women's semifinals are done, and we're waiting for Round 10 to get a call. France has been quite calm here and never looked under pressure. To hang in with the British female team next year might mean kicking it up a notch. However, I'm not sure this is the designated 4-way for next year. With this performance out of their less preferred jump plane we still hope so.
The semifinals of the 4-way Open class are complete. Judging is about to commence. Belgium told me they got in the region of 30 points. I know the Germans had their best so far and will post 27 points. The Norwegians are happy too. We await scores.
Other snips are that Irish Spirit is complete and happy with their performance. As is the team from Denmark that missed some training jumps here on site and didn't generate enough good rounds. This is the first world event for many teams here, and I'm sure the learning curve is steep.
We await the scores of the top guns in the Open class. I'm predicting the Russian camp, that has nothing to lose, now light one up, too. Germany just received their 27 points. We await more...
