We put together a nice photo gallery of the event at http://goo.gl/1Z7Yr if you wish to see some more pictures.

The gallery is still on its way, I presume?

I think you have to hover over the images at waterinstint and then click on the small arrow for the gallery to roll… it is there…

Oh yes, of course, I was looking for a separate gallery on the photos section. Tanks for the photos, Giovanni. Maybe it is those pink goggles that is behind Ruta’s impressive results. Let’s hope the best is still coming at Championships in Barcelona.
