Did you know that the Czech 4-way teams completed their national indoor championships last week?

Did you know that Slovenia will have two teams at the Indoor World Meet in Prague?
posted: Sep 26th, 2015 Slovenia is one of the relatively young countries in Eastern Europe, which became independent nations when the Russian Empire downsized in the 80s and 90s. Slovenia was actually a part of Yugoslavia until 1991 and joined the European Union in 2004.
It was the same year when Croatia hosted the World Meet 2004 in Rijeka. Croatia was also a part of Yugoslavia and split in 1991. A 4-way team from Slovenia competed at a World Championship of Formation Skydiving for the first time in Spain 2001, followed up in 2003 and then came back a year later to the neighboring country.

Did you know that Kewara's comeback could have been even more successful in Teuge?

"With one round tomorrow, the medal places seem all wrapped up although Kewara is only three points out of 3rd place and seems to have a great meet, despite being out of the game for so long. Well done, girls, or in my best Italian: Brave Fragoline..."
Kewara turned it around in the last round and won the Italian bronze medals... (more)
Did you know that Final Fire is Austria's first team in the world's Top 6 since the introduction of semifinals and finals?
posted: Sep 24th, 2015 The aftermath of the FAI World Cup 2015 continues with the meet videos of the national 4-way team from Austria, Final Fire.
The scores in Teuge were not the team's record numbers, even though a 17+ average sounds quite impressive coming from a small country like Austria. Final Fire had posted an 18.8 average after ten rounds with the same lineup at last year's national championships and followed up with 18.4 at the Austrian Nationals 2015. The 18.8 average of 2014 is the highest 10-round average by a 4-way team from Austria.
