What a disasterous WC Final for the French hosts so far. Surely they expected at least one podium, and yet their best jumper yesterday was 17th.

 

They'll need to win today's class to have any chance. Let's see...

Into today's jump-off go...

:USA Barge

:FRA Delestre

:NED Smolders

:BEL Philippaerts

:USA Ward

:SWE Lindelow

:SWE von Eckermann

Great chance for Beezie to build a big advantage for the final day... 2nd, 3rd and 4th from day one all failed to jump clear.

So, according to Longines, average of 69.25 and 71.80 in one row is 70.225, but in the other row it's 70.525 (which is correct).

 

I wonder if we can actually trust anything from Longines after seeing this. :p

Dear Lord, I was feeling bad because he came rather close but fell back after that last fence...and then that sprint :yikes::( 

 

That was like 5 centimeters away from €200

Meanwhile over in Paris, Werth went to turn the tables and grab second consecutive victory, briliant competition. :bowdown:

 

 

And a nice opportunity to get those judges wet. :p
