As the ISWC European Championships reaches the half way point its no surprise to see who is heading the rankings. What is particularly impressive is the speeds.
Yesterday saw extremely strong winds up to force 9 at times. 3 rounds were completed and not only did Antione take the lead, but he also set a new season record of 43.68 knots. Hot on his heals was the newly inspired Bjorn after his win in Turkey. He place 2nd in the first 2 before taking the last leg victory in the 3rd.
Valerie dominated in the womens were straight bullets, meaning she now has a substantial lead. Behind her is Anja Kruse in 2nd and Elke Schill in 3rd.
Overall in the mens Antoine leads with 3 firsts and a 2nd. Bjorn has 2 firsts* and 2 seconds, whilst Cyril takes the final podium position, counting 3 third places.
With 3 more days o run it is still all to play for. To check the live report check out www.speedwordcup.com
(*round 1 was split into 2 parts, and therefore both Bjorn and Antoine share a first place, as each won their particular part.)
