Well, lots of competition for 530m. CTF in Tianjin and Guangzhou are 530m. How do we know which one comes 1st, is it by who completes it 1st?

Indeed . But it's still a bit pity it'll be below the 500m mark.

Its not all about height, but about the quality and architecture. The height reduction is still okay.
