Date: November 1 & 3, 2019
Place: Bremen, Germany
The six years that passed between
the World Cup in Voitsberg and the one twelve months
ago in Bournemouth marked a very interesting period
of unpredictability in the competition, with a
different champion every year. This period came to
an end in Bremen, as Thor Egil Skaug doubled his
gold medals three years after his triumph in Milan.
In fact, for the first time ever the KOA witnessed
the exact same semi-finalists for two years in a row
(or ever!). It's no wonder that these four guys,
along with Dagh who missed the last two gatherings,
currently occupy the Rankings' Top 5 miles away from
the 6th player. Gianni Torchio's magnificent five
year streak of consecutive finals also came to end,
he had to settle for the bronze medal as this time
it was Andy Gregory's turn to win the silver.
World Champion Fabio Fichera
won the Top Scorer trophy for the second time in his career,
while Christian Dietz brought home the his first Best
Defense trophy. The Silver Cup went to Norway for the first
time, as Jorn
Flagtvedt's fourth final was the charm.
Andy was also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Note: 31 players were divided
into three groups of 8 and one group of 7. The top four players from each group
qualified to the World Cup Groups, while the rest would compete in the Silver
Goals in the finals (Click to enlarge):
