[RCSE] Team USA F3B Update


The F3B WC have finished 7 rounds now, with one more round to go.

Team USA is currently in 6th place. Its a tight race for 5th place with Belgium about 100 pts ahead, and Russia 100 pts behind (out of 55,000)

The Swiss are in 1st with a 500 pt lead. Sweden, Germany, and Austria are all within 500 pts of each other in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place.

Doesn't look good for a USA WC. My spreadsheet says DP isn't looking good to repeat as WC for a 5th straight time.

In Raw numbers, at the end of 7 rounds I have:

Darrel Zaballos - 14th
Gavin Botha - 23th
Michael Lachowski - 31rd
Daryl Perkins - 37

By dropping the worst events, we arrive at:

Daryl Perkins - 17th
Darrell Zaballos - 19th
Michael - Lachowski - 21st
Gavin Botha - 30th

(The results including Round 8 duration are posted on the WC web site. My figures above are only up through the end of Round 7). Quite a difference the dropped events make!
