SUUNTO PICK THE RECORDS CHALLENGE
The prize this year is a goody-bag containing:
- Vertical Blue team shirt
- Suunto baseball cap & swim cap - Autographed photo of all the athletes who break world records at Vertical Blue 2010
The challenge: which records will fall, by whom, and by how much? Since the women's field is small this year, we will be concentrating only on the men's categories, so there are three events. You need to provide answers to all 5 questions, using the reply form below this post.
1. men's CNF
(a) new world record? (y/n) - [1 point] (b) name of athlete holding record at end of VB2010? [1 point] (c) depth of record at end of VB2010? [2 points]
2. men's FIM
(a) new world record? (y/n) - [1 point] (b) name of athlete holding record at end of VB2010? [1 point] (c) depth of record at end of VB2010? [2 points] 3. men's CWT
(a) new world record? (y/n) - [1 point] (b) name of athlete holding record at end of VB2010? [1 point] (c) depth of record at end of VB2010? [2 points] 4. Overall winner of Suunto Dive-Off (see rules here) [2 points] 5. (for tiebreak only): Supply your predicted dive-time for ONE of the above performances. Important: Please note: Martin Stepanek has pulled out of VB 2010, and will not be competing.
Please format your answers like this:
1. (a)Y (b)Joe Bloggs (c)91m
2. (a)N (b)Herbert Nitsch (c)112m
3. (a)Y (b)Fred Flintstone (c)125m
4. Fred Flíntstone
Note that if you correctly predict that a record will remain unbroken then you will automatically earn 4 points - an easy earner, but then the history of Vertical Blue events would be against your prediction...
