Medal and podium

As what will probably be my last post, I thought I would send a nice "good morning" gift to all our friends stateside who have followed this blog and have supported Sarah in her quest: There is always only one world champion, so when ties occur at first place, there is a formula to brake the tie and determine who is the champion and who is second place. Apparently, things are different when the tie occurs lower in the rankings. In this particular case there were two second place pilots, and after several meetings and discussions among officials and powers to be, a decision was reached that both were to receive a silver medal, and that Sarah would be awarded the bronze medal and third place in a 1, 2, 2, 3 on the podium. So, we had the pleasure to see Sarah step on the podium, the pride to see our flag fly at the ceremony for the Club Class, and the joy to witness Sarah getting her bronze medal. We are all very proud to bring one of those special FAI World Championship medals home for all of you who have been so supportive of Sarah. Enjoy the photos.
