The scoreboard could change quickly with Yoshi Muroya also nibbling at Goulian’s heels with 19 points. The competition is truly fierce. Goulian, who was the fastest in the Round of 14, was less than 0.4 seconds behind Hall in the Final 4. But Goulian would have been in fourth place had Muroya not received a time penalty due to an incorrect level in an air gate. Also, Goulian barely made it to the Final 4. Martin Sonka had a faster time than in the Round of 8, but was disqualified for a rule infringement. A post-flight inspection found that Sonka had exceeded the 2,950-rpm limit for 4.4 seconds.
