Video: Reto Zimmerman At The FPA Worlds

Two videos from the 2003 FPA Worlds, both featuring Switzerland’s Reto Zimmerman.

1. His pairs prelim (5.4meg, avi) with Sune Wentzel. Zimmerman and Wentzel won Pool B by more than 3 points with this performance and went on to finish seventh in pairs.

2. His co-op semifinal (9.9meg, avi) with Jeff Kruger and Toddy Brodeur. They finished third in their semifinal, only one tenth of a point out of second place. In the finals, they placed third.
