WSDC 2011 – Break, Round 7 & 8 results


This is part of the WSDC 2011 series as I recount and report on the World School Debating Championship 2011 in Dundee, Scotland as a debater, blogger and Wales national team member.

Round 7 and 8 are now over. Round 8 in particular contained some interesting clashes and some interesting results. The announcement of the top 16 teams to proceed to the knock-out rounds will be streamed live at http://dundeechannel.com/wsdc.html.
