The other side of the story, that's an easy toss with a throw rope if viewed as an observer. Though how many times have we seen in video or person someone miss a similar toss because they were distracted by the moment or hadn't practiced much? Clinton came through nearly as big here as Ben did.
Both Clinton and Ben showed they have that little extra something that is required to get the job done when things go wrong and the pressure is on, something that is hard to practice. Good on you guys.
Rambling aside, this video offers some insight into what can go awry in paddling, and how those wrinkles were handled this time around.
