The Live Scoreboard which will be updated with the latest scores can be found http://www.gouidos.fr/powerballs/live.php
The Winner of each round is the spinner with the highest score in the category he participates.For instance a person may be the winner of the speed category and of the endurance category as well (1 winner in each group).
It should be noted that the live scoreboard will contain ALL the competitors so dont be anxious as you should only care for your group's scores.
The top 3 spinners of each group must post a picture of their score as a proof that they really achieved that score.
If someone doesnt participate in a round,he gets zero(0) rpm in each category he participates.
There are 3 OPC Champions(in each group!):
1)OPC U18/Senior/Masters Speed Champion
2)OPC U18/Senior/Masters Sprint Champion
3)OPC U18/Senior/Masters Endurance Champion
The OPC champion in each category will be the spinner who has achieved the highest average rpm in his/her group(the sum of the scores achieved in all 3 rounds divided by 3).
Spinner1 : (Speed) 13510 - 13074 - 13729 : Final Score: 13437 rpm
Spinner2 : (Speed) 13001 - 13881 - 13100 : Final Score: 13327 rpm
So Spinner1 is the Sprint Champion.
