|Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer lifts the World Cup as Germany|
celebrates their victory in Brazil.
The Netherlands victory in the third place game and Argentina's loss allowed Gray to move past Krista in the final two days and claim second place overall, 9.5 points off of Rodrigo's blistering pace. Four years ago Krista narrowly beat Gray for the Nephew/Niece title, so it was sweet revenge for Gray this time around. Brian G. and Evan rounded out the top 5. Brian was the best rookie of the BISERGS with his 4th place finish. It was an impressive run for the Oregon Samuelsons which placed Rachel in 9th to join Gray and Evan in the top 10. The Barreras showed their quality with Carol finishing 8th and Sharleen ending up in 10th. Carol's finish was especially impressive given the disappointment of her first pick Spain. Doug and Greg finished 6th and 7th with Greg being the only Brazil owner to survive the World Cup hosts' awful collapse and remain in the top 10.
Ivan was the top finisher in the 12-years and under category finishing 12th overall. Max finished 2 spots behind him as the second youngster while Annika rounded out the top three of the kids category and finished 18th overall.
