Saturday started off with the completion of the practice round and the first round of speed. The old Florida state speed record was broken three times that morning. Greg Windmiller followed by Warren Cleary during the practice round, and then again during the first round by Greg again posting the fastest time of the meet with 2.584 seconds. The weather forecast for the day was for severe winds and boy were they!! We went on a weather hold and around 2:30pm the competitors were released for the day.
Sunday morning the competitors were walking the course before the sunrise with the first round of Zone Accuracy to begin at 7:00am. There were battles for placing all over the score board. Places 7-10 were separated by only 23 points at the end. Fifth and Sixth by three points, and the Gold and Silver were only three points apart after the final round. The top spot on the leaderboard switched between Greg and Nick after each Round!! The judges ability to get scores up after each round added to the excitement of the meet allowing competitors to know where they stand before going up for each jump. After the final round was complete, Warren Cleary had clinched the Bronze, Nick Batsch had the silver, and US Army Golden Knight Greg Windmiller had the Gold.
See you all there!!!
