Well, after spending considerable time searching for the results of this World Class Event, I have discovered that Christian - the wokker mentioned in the article - was injured in training and was not able to compete.
Please join me in wishing him a speedy recovery. I hope that these are annual events and not held on 4 year cycles.
Please note that the wokking athlete (Christian) mentioned above is not the same person as the Festool USA CEO. I have no knowledge if any woks were harmed during training or the races.
