Did you know that Russia has a powerful lineup in 4-way Women?
posted: May 23rd, 2017 The Russian Indoor Nationals 2017 did not only feature the dramatic 1-point battle between Black Cat and IFS Moscow. The Sun Path Products NSL News audience has probably noticed that there was a third team that won Round 7 and tied the highscore in Round 1. Bubble Trouble has an all-female lineup and posted a meet average (23.5) that other Russian 4-way Women teams have only been dreaming of in the past. In fact, the same 23.5 average would have won the bronze medals at the FAI Indoor World Cup 2016, not far away from the silver medal position. Bubble Trouble would instantly become a medal... (more)
Did you know that Russia had the earlier 1-point battle for gold at the indoor nationals?
posted: May 22nd, 2017 Two world class teams in Russia gave each other a similar 1-point battle before Ninja 4 and Fly-In Amnesya did the same in Italy shortly after. The Russian Indoor Nationals 2017 were hosted by Flystation and brought together nine 4-way teams. Black Cat won the national indoor title after a dramatic Round 10 and a 1-point finish. The national 4-way outdoor champions were three points ahead of IFS Moscow after Round 4, and it seemed like the Russian indoor title would also end up in Black Cat's possession. However, the videos of the next six rounds are showing how the situation changed when... (more)
Did you know that Fly-In Amnesya is dangerously close to the top spot in Italy?
posted: May 21st, 2017 The indoor competition season is not over yet, as more countries are still holding their national indoor championships before the outdoor season begins. The latest scores came from Russia and Italy, and both events featured very exciting battles for the top spot. The Sun Path Products NSL News begins with a closer look at the competition in Italy before the review of the Russian Indoor Nationals. Three of the Italian top contenders attended the national indoor championships, and two of them finished with team record averages on the top of the leaderboard after a 1-point battle over ten rounds. Ninja... (more)
Did you know that only the USA have never missed the 4-way podium in 4-way Open?
posted: May 20th, 2017 The Sun Path Products NSL News covered the Russian 8-way team Tanay with the story on 6 May 2017 and took a closer look at the history of 8-way Formation Skydiving competition at the same time. The 8-way update offered the opportunity to follow up with a similar analysis of the 4-way Open Class event, which was modernized at the same time. The new set of rules and dive pools were introduced at the World Meet 1985 in Mali Losinj, former Yugoslavia, and Formation Skydiving competition celebrated its 40-year anniversary at the FAI Mondial 2016. The 8-way history since 1985 has been dominated... (more)
Did you know that iFLY Sacramento added the four missing scores early to the ICL May leaderboard?
posted: May 20th, 2017 May has been a busy month for iFLY Sacramento's Indoor Cloud League team of the Northern California Skydiving League. iFLY Sacramento was the first wind tunnel on the May leaderboard this month, with only AA and AAA Class scores to begin with. NCSL Director Lori Connor then followed up first with 3-way tunnel scrambles last week, where teams flew "pointless" formations, which were taken from the 4-way dive pool and eliminated the point slot. Lori Connor said that the participants had "super fun". Thursday night was the time for the first official monthly NCSL Tunnel Kicker where six teams... (more)
Did you know that registration deadline for the FAI World Cup 2017 is around the corner?
posted: May 18th, 2017 The FAI World Cup 2017 is the next major event this year and probably the most relevant outdoor event of the 2017 competition season. The Sun Path Products NSL News will cover the event live from the competition site. The Fallschirmsportzentrum Saar in Germany is hosting the event, as it did in 2011 for the first time. It was a very successful and exciting meet, even though the last round in 8-way fell victim to a storm that approached quickly and unexpectedly. It brought the 8-way competition thriller to an earlier end, and the Golden Knights did not have to defend the thin 1-point lead... (more)
