I like how Gatesman is a 4 seed in routine and a 1 seed in circle.
The shred 30 results are fantastic.
I hope someone is taping because there are a lot of players that haven't had much current video, like Olaf and Felix, that I would love to see where there game is at, and I can never get enough footage of the Airi­nens.
The competition looks intense 8O

Is that how they finished or who made the final? Just looked at the worlds website and it looks like those are the final 4 contestants.. not necessarily the winner? maybe I'm wrong.. Either way great job Evan!! Not to be USA biased or anything :P All 4 players are amazing, footage would be very nice indeed.

Word, huge congrats to honza! I caught his and milan's routines on the live stream. But how is he going to bitch about the judging this year? That's a worlds tradition, that is! :P :lol:

Jay's BAp name is Jay Boychuk ''Norris''
Olaf's BAP name is Olaf ''Anaconda'' Piwowar

I don't think there will be so many issue about the judging. Most of the people over there were fine with the results we have. Like every year some argue that kthis or this person should have a higher or lower rank, but overall, most of the people i talked to had the feeling that those results makes sens.

Damian told me he had suggested an "Isn't he in BAP?" nickname for Olaf ;-).

Only to say that after some discussion, Jay's BAP name has been changed to :
Jay ''The Creator'' Boychuk!

That's really funny. I am sure that baby Moses is very happy about that.

I think "The Creator" is so fitting considering Jorden is "The Destroyer."


And Ian, your post count is so leet!

that's it for bravos, wows, curiosity, inside info, speculation, pics, stories and vids ?
world's only gets 3 pages of discussion this year ? daaam,
shit has definitly changed over here...

i am so happy for honza finally attaining world
champion status, that is so well deserved, considering
he has been on a constant killing spree for what, 9, 10 years?!?!

true ripper.

plus i'm mad stoked for Jana winning women's finals,
and for the two accomplished gentlemen Jay and Olaf
for being bap-tized.

great stuff...time to go to some tourneys again, i guess :)
