2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 8 Impressions

Subdivision 1 // Subdivision 2 // Subdivision 3 // Subdivision 4 // Subdivision 5 // Subdivision 6 // Subdivision 7 WE MADE IT!!!!! Goodness gracious that was a long 2 days. In this subdivision Switzerland secured not only a place in Tokyo, but also in the team final, ending up in 6th place with 251.400.

2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 6 Impressions

Subdivision 1 // Subdivision 2 // Subdivision 3 // Subdivision 4 // Subdivision 5 Hello everyone, I'm writing to you from the twilight zone, at least I must be because nothing makes sense anymore. Here's the thing- Zou Jingyuan (you know, the greatest pbars worker of all time, undefeated since 2017, all that good stuff) … Continue reading 2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 6 Impressions

2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 4 Impressions

Subdivision 1 // Subdivision 2 // Subdivision 3 With three significant teams in this subdivision hoping to qualify, it was always going to be a dramatic subdivision and boy did it deliver. We'll start with Brazil who had a very rough start despite starting on HB, one of their best events usually. Depite Arthur Nory flying … Continue reading 2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 4 Impressions

2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 3 Impressions

Subdivision 1 // Subdivision 2 A LOT happened just now. Most significantly- Russia happened. They were impressive but not perfect. They now lead the team standings by nearly 10 whole points- though this has no implications for Olympic qualification as they already qualified a full team last year. Individually, Nagornyy leads the AA with 87.333 … Continue reading 2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 3 Impressions

2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 2 Impressions

After the excitement of Subdivision 1, this subdivision was a bit less historical. The main team in contention here was France, who had a less that ideal day. With 245.127 they've slotted in behind the benchmark that Italy set and behing two teams they finished ahead of last year (when they ended up 12th). HB in particular … Continue reading 2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 2 Impressions

2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 1 Impressions

WELL WELL WELL we already have our first plot twist of the Championships. Chinese Taipei- a team I'd mentally filed under "probably won't qualify but keep an eye on them" -absolutely crushed it. They put up an enormous 250.093 team total. The cutoff for the team final last year was 245.186. Admittedly, I expect totals … Continue reading 2019 World Championships- Quals Subdivision 1 Impressions
