It is time now!

Give us an ONE UNDISPUTED CHAMPION!!!!

(oh yeah and Travis Ortmayer, we need one undisputed Stone King also... good job man considering all that you've been through..)

Good to see the guys in their first World Championship, Nick Best, Benni, Oli, etc all perform so well.

I've never seen Nick Best compete, hardly surprising as this was his first international contest. The fact he made the final, and set a world record in the light set of farmers on the way, is very impressive. Looking forward to seeing his career develop.

Well I know that Karl Gillingham got invited as an alternate for the WSM Heats, but I do believe that if he actually qualified he would've been competing rather then waiting for someone to drop.
This is a very sore point for me, as I believe that Karl Gillingham should've been competing in the Heats. Karl Gillingham beat Magnus Samuelsson, Dominic Filiou, Dave Ostlund, and Janne Virtannen at the Mohegan Sun...a qualifier for the WSM!!...so why did they get invites to the Heats and he only got a invite as an alternate???
This is all I know.
