“Yesterday was fantastic,” David Horne reported to IronMind®. “Knackered now though! 59 competitors worldwide for this leg, so we're considering it a success so far.”
This meet was run as the digital counterpart to the postal meets that were common in the 20th century, with the same competition format used in multiple locations in Europe and the United States yesterday. The events were the two-hand pinch, the wrist developer and the Vulcan Gripper.
Here are the official places and points for the top ten:
Elizabeth Horne won the women's competition (3 points); Mary Ann McKeague was second (6 points) and Sherrie Wheeler was third (10 points).
