Kudos to reineke111
for coming in first place for both target language hours
and total language hours
and scoring his first golden hat trick in both categories. Is there no stopping this indomitable fox? Blaurebell
's stalwart efforts earned her both a silver medal for target language hours and a bronze for total language hours in what I believe may be her first 6WC! And BrunUgle
flew off with the silver for total language hours to wing back to her nest of previous medals, and Teango
(me) scraped a bronze by the the skin of his teeth (props to Hundetier for making the final furlong an uphill sprint)!
I also recall several people were flying high earlier in the challenge, but succumbed to illness or other difficulties and had to slow down or duck out altogether, and I'd like to give these guys a generic shout-out and round of applause (you know who you are).
Finally, well done to everyone who participated in this first 6WC of 2017. I hope you all made progress in your target language and other languages, and are one step closer your goals for this year.
