Hey Vic City,
Regionals are over, and one man scored more points than any other man or women in any Region. Some top Games athletes seemed to struggle at times, and even looked unlikely to make it back to the Games. Scott Panchik and Ben Smith are two of the most consistent Games athletes, but only managed 3rd in their respective Regions. However, reigning Games champ, Mat Fraser scored 585 out of a possible 600 points, leading the way in both the men's or women's competition.
