What was it like to experience the Europe Regional? Join Sevan Matossian on a journey through Reebok Stadium to witness the crowds, the athletes and the battle to get to the Home Depot Center in California.
In Part 3, Matossian wraps up his coverage of the Europe Regional with the third day of competition. The weather turns wet and the workouts are even more challenging.
Tuomas Vainio takes first despite losing the top spots in both of the final workouts. Mikko Aronpää edges in for a second-place finish overall after taking first in Amanda and third in the chipper. Elvar þór Karlsson takes third overall.
Thorisdottir says she’s glad she competed in the regional.
“You always need to get the confidence back every once in awhile—this is definitely helping with that,” she says.
