Old rapid fire pistol final format at German Championship 2011

Thumb up!
It obvious that new final format is not ready and has nothing to do with fairness.
Only happy winners say «I like it». What else should they say? «I am not happy to win being 10 points behind qualification leader»!?!? But today's happy winners must remember, that next time being 10 point ahead in qualification they can be last after new «media-internet-publicity-social-facebook-youtube friendly» final.
In the meantime we will enjoy old style final format at German Championship 2011.

Zeroing of qualification score in the final stage is less of a problem. My frustration is caused by scoring:
10.9 + 10.9 + 10.9 + 10.9 + 9.6 = 53.2 (4 points)
9.7 + 9.7 + 9.7 + 9.7 + 9.7 = 48.5 (5 points).

    Hello Igor,
    I understand your frustration with the new finals structure. From what I have heard and read the sport has had an increase in the number of participants and spectators since the introduction of 22lr and hit/miss finals. If you compare it to the premier athletic discipline of the 100m sprint. The athletes went through a qualifying round to make the final. The times are not progressed and hence the fastest time for the day (not event) is declared the winner. Maybe to distinguished a good series in the finals(hit/miss) is to have a two tier scoring system where an X-ring is worth 1.5 or 2 hits. Just a thought from someone who enjoys the new system.
