Comment & pix Task 8

Kicking sticks - the classic task. At the fourth attempt completed in perfect weather.

One problem; Alfredo MARTIN was timed as the fastest at 1:22, except video evidence later showed he missed stick 10 by the narrowest of margins and went around to kick it again. Fortunately the Director, (courtesy of the Spanish and French teams) had access to two independant sources of the correct time (which agreed with each other) and this was the time which was scored.
