I would say we did OK,

Top 10:
    Java, C++, Java, Haskell, Haskell, C , C++ , C , C++, C++

So now given the size of the competition, the results are starting to
look more like places like topcoder or spoj, where the top entries are
primarily C and C++, but with a disproportionate represenation of
Haskell and OCaml at the top end.
