The crowd knew instantly what another tied round would mean for the World Championship. Russia had successfully defended the 8-way Excalibur. The rule book says that the highest score of the competition determines the winner if a jump-off does not break the tied situation. And Russia had the highest score of the meet with their 26 points in round five. (more)

And the most experienced 8-way competitor in the field, Craig Girard, can't wait to go up for the first jump-off of his career. Can it get more exciting? (more)
