That's so awesome, Wolt. I am so glad he is continuing to make progress. I haven't met him, but he seems like such a sweet little guy. His face alone - so freaking adorable.
Thanks!
Great news, Wolt. :cool:

It was the second highest vault by a 15 year old in the world this year :approve:
And here, I still trip over the carpet.

Well done to Wally Jr. Remind her to thank IMCT when she medals in a few years. :cool:

I had a go at the first few questions and was relieved that I could do them! I can't remember whether they were GCSE or A level standard when I did them, but seemed a bit tricky for 15 year olds.

I think the issue was the way the questions were asked were not the way they had been taught.

Which might explain why I could do them. Old school maths!

Wifey marched. I would have went too, but like a Carolina Ladies Room, I didn't think I was allowed.
