World Champions - Then & Now (karma: 3)

Hello all! It's time for the annual celebration of An Coimisiun's 2011 World Champions. I've attached a picture of every girl taking their title in Dublin with the oldest picture of them I could find - for those repeat winners, I used a different picture than I have in the past (6-time champ Lauren Early & 5-time champ Claire Greaney seem determined to make vintage pictures difficult for me without repeats ;))

As always, if anyone has any older pictures, please feel free to share in this little nostalgic flashback.

Massive congratulations to all the girls, from U11 right through Senior Ladies!

U11 World Champion Keeva Corry (Croghan-Greene)

It's working fine for me. Only one that isn't showing is Emily Penner, but it says this image has been deleted...

Anyway, great pictures. It's always nice to see how the styles have changed over the years! :)

^ It works on the usual grid system where marks are translated into grid scores up to 50th Place. 1st gets 100, 2nd 75, 3rd 65, 4th 60, and so on.

They add the total marks from each round to get an overall score. Then each of the 3 rounds is added together to get an overall score. So the maximum score anyone can get is 900 points. This year they dropped the highest and lowest marks on each round. So although their were 5 judges on a rotating panel, only 3 of them counted towards the overall scores.

They have a rotating panel, so there is a different panel of judges for each round.

Hope that helps? I'm not very good at explaining the grid system as it is pretty weird... but hopefully that will give you the general gist of how it works.

Claire.

Thanks for posting! This is really cool, and I love looking at all the different solo dresses. :) Isn't Brogan one of the stars in "Jig"?

Don't know how Emily Penner's photograph was deleted - but here it is again. The "Then" was at 2003's Eastern Canadian Oireachtas, which she won. She was U15 at the time :) Congratulations Emily - been a long time coming, so pleased this year was yours!
