And yet everyone is telling how Norway is going to have a private party. :p

Still got every chance for that, although Germany did start with Germany's famous efficiency :p

Of course it's the 4th place for :NZL.

 

It's pretty worrying how few nations we could have at the final medal table...

I was thinking that today with Poland, Hungary, New Zealand, Belgium, Belarus and Slovakia missing good chances already, we could end up with about 22/23 nations with medals at the end, that would be a huge shame.

Even Australia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan finishing without medals is not impossible at all...

Happy about silver and bronze!  :clap:

 

I predicted this result for the Canadians, but with Kleveland on top.  Again a relatively unknown American taking home gold instead.  Congrats to him.

At least this won’t be as controvertial as Kostenburg’s win, but still seems a bit generous.

 

That being said Red is a good rider, he won’t be another one hit wonder.

Poland still has a very decent medal chance, and I think there's a rather good chance those other nations will combine for more than one medal as well. Or at least one.

I think it’s a pretty disappointing result for Canada. Parot in particular underperformed, and neither Toutant nor Nicholson could get a run together.

 

Honestly any of the four Canadians could have done a better run than Gerard on this course, but they failed to do so. I don’t think having silver and bronze is disappointing, but losing gold to anyone but Kleveland is a big disapointment.

I don’t see Australia failing to medal.

 

New Zealand’s best chances haven’t come yet.

Ya, Red isn’t some unknown. He’s done very well over the last year.

I don't want to come off as a sore loser, but yeah "generous" might be a good word.

I mean, if the stars aligned Canada could have potentially swept this event.  But in this type of sport and with judges, it's a bit of a crapshoot.  Two medals is good, although would have obviously preferred gold.  Parrot put down probably the best run in the final position in 2014 and finished 5th, so I'm just glad the judges were a bit more, uh, real, this time around.
