Sorry, I can see how it would look that way, but that's not what I meant. I was leaning more towards the fact that there are still only what, 60 spots for males, and 60 spots for females that get to go to regionals, and then only the top three there get to go to the games. This year there are 70,000 more bodies in the ring than there were last year, so just from a math perspective, your chances of getting to regionals/games is even more difficult because the pool of competitors is bigger.
