As predicted, my prediction failed...
It was a splendid final however, only spoiled somewhat by Cedric's spectacular performance, which left his fellow competitors with a snowball's chance in hell really. 4 tops in 5 tries. Magnificent! His victory was secured after 3 problems.
Among the women, it was a little bit closer, with Jule Wurm having a tiny chance of stealing Anna's title if she were to top the last problem. As it were, she wasn't even close though, and Anna could make her last minutes on the wall part of the celebration.
Thanks for a great show, and congrats to both competitors and organisers for a job well done!
