His fellow-countryman Hugo Pessanha (BRA-13) entereed the top ten too, but no further shocking chances in the men’s category.
32-Year old Ilse Heylen (BEL-7) made a very nice progression due to her victory in Birmingham U52kg and won three places. Heylen became the oldest winner of the World Cup in Birmingham since 2006.
Viola Waechter (GER-9) experienced her best performance last weekend and moved to position 9.
Sarah Clark’s (GBR-19) victory in Birmingham didn’t help her in the ranking as she gained points U63kg instead of her usual weight category U57kg.
U78kg two Canadians Roberge (10) and Cotton (11) gained useful points, but Suunta Galeone (ITA-17) made the best progression winning 100 points to rise to the 17th spot.
