just a thought , why cant the worlds be run over a series of shoots rather than just the one event ??
That way anybody who wants to have a go can,, best scores going on to the next round ect.
Then when the tally is down to 150-200 whatever , whoever got through , got through on merit/skill ect
This would allow everybody ,who took part over the series to at least say to themselves ,"hey i was given a chance and did my best/worse) but at least i was given the oppotunity regardless of springers/ladies/kids ect
just a thought
