Potocar needs to be #7 to win the World Cup overall

EDITORIAL

26 September 2022

Luka Potocar is very close to securing the overall World Cup title as he made it to the final as #7 while at the same time both Taisei Homma #12 and Jesse Grupper #13 did not make it into the final round and final top-8. If the 20-year-old Slovenian keeps his seventh position, he will get 3 860 points beating Taisei Homma, who has 3 830 points and Jesse Grupper, who has 3 773 points.

From the semi-result, we can see that Nishida Hiremasa won ahead of another three from Team Japan.

Among the women, Chaehyun Seo and Hannah Meul topped the semi-final with Janja Garnbret as #3. Slovenia has three girls that have made it to the final and Japan had five girls in the Top-12.
