Welcome to Omnibits for Saturday, 17 August (Day 5)
morgen everyone, it's a quiet, beautiful morning in Banja Luka. There
was a nice private BBQ for the judges at the DZ last night. I went to
town with two-thirds of the jury and we found a nice pizzaria right
across from the hotel after walking all around old town for half an
hour. Banja Luka is a happenin' place on Friday nights. Lots of locals
out and about.
VFS 4-way is on call....
09:30[T2] VFS 4-way is jumping round 8....
8-way is completed, and FRA Aerodyne Maubeuge finished wrapping up
their gold medal with a 21.3 average, 40 points ahead of RUS
Barkli. The French federation should be quite proud of their showing at
these competitions. Two events yet to be completed: VFS 4-way and FS
Female 4-way. All eyes will be on the latter as two great teams are
tied with two jumps to go.
11:15[T2] Mouse very
sick. Fed mouse new battery. Mouse much happier now. The 4-way FS
Female round 9 is half done. Stay tuned. The Eastern seaboard of North
America should be waking up shortly...
....and 20 minutes later,
the high drama in 4-way FS Female continues. Both teams put up a great
25 on the board, and both teams were busted down to a 24. Still a tie
game with one round left. Do I smell a jump-off? I hope not. So it's
FRA Aerodyne French and USA GKF 4 tied a 183 going into the final
Competitors anticipating round 10 of 4-way FS Female.
Judging for round 10 of 4-way FS Female is beginning. I will be
grabbing the camera to watch from where the picture above was taken.
Good luck ladies!
45 minutes later, both teams perform a
flawless 20 right on the freeze-frames, so the girls are going to have
a jump-off. And if it's a tie, the gold medal will go to France because
they have the high-round score of 27. The drama continues. I have video
I hope to post later.
4-way Open is all done, getting the results posted. BEL Hayabusa
finished with a 27 average on what I would not call a fast draw.
France and USA both score a clean 17, so FRA Aerodyne French wins
the gold medal based on their highest score of the meet.
Congratulations to them as well as the French delegation for a
dominating performance at these championships. Well done, France!
is an open FS meeting for all competitors at Hotel Bosna tomorrow at
15:00. Closing ceremonies and the banquet are tomorrow night at 18:00.
I would try to post pictures but we'll probably be all packed up by
then. Thanks for visiting and see you all next time!
