All it took was a 10.00 ao12, a 10.01 ao12, three 10.09 ao12s, a 10.07 ao12, and many 10.1x ao12s, but it's here

PB!

although it does feel a little like mockery to get the 9.00, a PB is a PB and we take those

Official results, courtesy of WSMO22

3x3 was very rough. The first two rounds I was trembling incredibly hard. My fingers were shaking like iOS apps when you long press one of them. One of my judges recognised that I was using ZZ-CT though, which was very cool. In finals, I was a lot calmer, but did a Ja perm instead of Jb, leading me to DNF'ing an 11.38. If this hadn't been a DNF, the ao5 would be 11.78.

For my first ever comp, I'm pretty happy with the results. Nerves were tough but I reached every goal I had, except for sub 12 3x3 ao5.

Been stable in averaging 10.5-10.6 recently, but over the past few days I've been sitting around 10.4 and then yesterday was just ridiculous.
