We've all been there before.  I remember my first time.  I thought the article was a genius troll article, with its brilliant use of sarcasm and nonsensical pros...  Then I realized it was real, and some how, some way, the "Slaydies" were just colonial oppressors...

There's still one slot to be selected by a committee, so I assume it is to try and impress them, especially now that Ondra is in.

look not further than the latest Toulouse event for proof of that. 


qualification:
#1 in speed ended up being #20 in boulderering and # 21st in lead (or something like that)

finals:
#1 in speed ended up being #8 in bouldering and #8 in lead (out of 8 competitors)

worst part is that was still good for #4 in qualification and overall
