Then there are the surprises. As I mentioned in Part 1, sometimes I will make a mistake, and then correct for it in mid-flight, and make the bar by virtue of having made the right correction at the right time. Other times, I have doubts or fears, but I still manage to execute well enough to clear an unexpected height. "Woah, did I really just do that?! Boom, son." That's also a great feeling.
In the next episode, I follow some of the crowd interactions that I saw during the elite competition.
