I went beck to my work because I didn’t get day free. Now I watch results very nervous to see if I come to B finals.
I see my brains don’t work good after STA max. They are not ready for intellectual work.

PRELIMINARY05/07/2007 ob 18:38 #17543
We have a protest regarding Henning Larsens performance.
Winrams coach claiming Henning dipped his mouth and had Post Bo movements.
Judging Henning was one of the least experinced judges Melita CRO.
Standing beside her seeing Henning I knew it was going to be a agonizing task.
In my opinion she should have given RED and let Henning protest in order to see the video.
Winrams coach means Winram did a STRONG dive of 203 and think he deserves a third place. Does not want to see the bronze medal go because of a judge error.
The judges are meeting as we speak. And it all comes down to the video. If the video is good I think Protest will be accepted, if the video is bad he will get benefit of doubt.
Hopefully this will not come down to the competence of the videographer.
Sebastian05/07/2007 ob 19:18 #17544
RED card henning.
Henning is protesting.
I guess he wants to see the video, which is good.
I think he should see it and be able to judge for himself.
Thats probably worth 50 euro as evaluation.06/07/2007 ob 07:10 #17546
Half the competition is done. Three events out of six.
The finals last night was probably the most Competitionlike thing our community has delivered when it comes to audience appeal.
Lots of people in the audience stand: full screen video, music, journalists (mostly slovenian, russian and japaneese), interviews with winners on the screen, speakers in several langaguages.
And the actual organization functioned close to perfect: impressive seeing 16 safetydivers all on standby in neat lines in the water as the persentation of the athletes in the finals was out in the loudspeakers.
Judging 8 lanes is tricky – but it works. Its all about the athletes “making it easy for the judges to judge them”.
Great performances by the athletes, many NR. Of course some athletes are missed, and some of our favourites dissapeared in the qualifications:
STA misses Natalie, maldame and Timo in the finals.
Of course Tom is missed, but the quality of the results are good, and the drama is here.
For a moment I thought Natalja made a misstake with 5.32 in STA qual, but I guess she knew exactly what she was doing.
The big question today is if Stig can do something about a well rested herbert (mostly walking around smiling). The mens third place is the most interesting today, as is the females second place: can Lotta deliver again (earpain) or will our new star Elizabeth make yet another great leap in PB. And what can Karal do?
Dont forget to check out:
from the very busy administraton centre06/07/2007 ob 08:30 #17547
Old Deron still going strong 7.02 winner of B finals. 9th postion.
repeating his achievement from renens, more or less.
He waited out the greek Alexis at 7 min
William bailing out saving himself for DNF
Carlos was still doing warm up breathhold on the other side of the pool at start of countdown. bailed out at about 3 min.
Women as expected Claudia Rollero SUI winner of B finals.
Liv Philips a GB record around 5.30.06/07/2007 ob 09:27 #17548
ooh my god.
This was a thriller.
Women poping up before 6 minutes.
Jessica Wilson USA at 6 sharp finishing third.
Natalia fighting hands on ledge,feet down.
But Lotta E still lying cool, not moving.
Lotta set her mind to do minimum 3 min contractions.
Ending up adding 20 secs to her old WR PB coming up at 6.49
Natalia fooling us all, just contuning fighting like another day at the office.
8 minutes WR.
She has set Wr everytime she enters water in all championships.06/07/2007 ob 09:32 #17549
So the men.
I had been (as a speaker) favourizing herbert and Stig and expecting a good performance from Ryouza.
I was way of target.
The well rested Herbert did not find the feelgoodfactor. 7.03
Stig feeling weak on purpose failing SP
Then heads poping up everywhere Ales SLO at 7 Ryozo at 7.03.
Left in the pool NEW NAMES.
Peter Boivie sweden adding to NR and PB 7.10 3rd
Tomek finishing 2nd 7.15
and at the end of the pool Nicolas Guerry 7.34.
Freediving and most of all static is a mystery today solved by three very surprised athletes.06/07/2007 ob 18:08 #17550
Last year 114 was needed for the A finals. This year 132. Alexey took the last position. Biggest surprise Nazoki JP 143.
Three Slovenians nearly made it to the A final (JUrex2 and Mitja BO or close).
Stig looked strong at 153. Henning and William around 140. Henning pushing himself, somewhat easier for William. Yajac and Swedish Larsson at 134 both.
William and Stig the strongest.
Women have improved immensly, while men are BOing right and left ‘ women usuallz come up on the right side (same as in DYN).
112 needed for finals this year.
Junko improving alot setting PB NR with 112. Johanna shaping up in the last discipline ready to defend her 2nd position from last year. Alena (DyN BO 195) now 116 DNF joining Karla and Jarmilla in the A final. Lidijc 119 and Eva 116 makes up the eight. Oh and of course Natalja with an easy 117.
Who will take second tomorrow.
I have no idea.
Sebastian06/07/2007 ob 18:35 #17551
Danes protest Lidija Lijic 119 meters. Claims it was post BO.
If won she is out of finals and Maria Livberg 110 meters is in.
My guess – the protest will go through.
This is quite a new thing with athletes protesting each other. They feel very bad about it, both William and Maria but they claim they do not want to be beaten by another athlete with a “bad” dive.
I think its a good thing sometimes judges are very unsure and give benefit of doubt – with a protest they (and the whole judge group) gets a second chance to correct a misstake – or not.06/07/2007 ob 19:54 #17552
Looking at the startlist for tomorrow and trying to predict anything is very hard.
Of course there is Stig and Natalja, but then who. It could go any way in places 2-8.
And the B finals aswell is going to be a thriller. Most people having done PB yesterday so we do not know where their limit is.07/07/2007 ob 09:17 #17553
Yesterday we saw too many BO’s. I newer saw so many in one competition. I think the reason was too many competitors tried to reach the finals. All new that +125m is needed and it was obviously too much for some of us.
Impressive is Danish team 8 competitors in the finals. Slovenian team was also good all 4 competitor did at least 125m but with 2 BO, which is not good. If Štampfer wouldn’t had BO Mulchanov wouldn’t make it to the finals,…
Waiting for new world champion and new WR from Nataly.
