These images are from Friday, before the Finals.
Most all the athletes were in the village to do signings on Friday.
It was great to hear them all talk about the next day's event, what should have been the finals. Talking with Brett and the pressure of the Triple Crown hanging over his head, or Martin Söderström about his injuries, Thomas Lemoine about the scoring from Rotorua, wishing Brandon Semenuk good luck on his three-peat attempt.
I was amazed how well spoken and composed they all were considering the pressure of the next day and yet how normal and humble everyone was. A credit to each of them and Crankworx as an event.
I hope these images get that across.
