Did you know that nothing has changed between Airbus FSZ Saar and AtomiX-YUU?
posted: Apr 21st, 2018 The NSL News recently featured the indoor competition between three Germans teams who are eligible for FAI/IPC's 4-way Women event and posted their scores on two different leaderboards on the "German World Challenge weekend". The same article mentioned that not much changed on the top level of German 4-way competition, where Airbus FSZ Saar and AtomiX-YUU have been distancing themselves from the rest of the field of 4-way teams in the past years. However, this duel always offers exciting competition and enough drama to catch regular attention by the NSL News. The Airbus-AtomiX duel in Germany... (more)
Did you know that HF Flying Circus has targets, goals and duels?
posted: Apr 20th, 2018 There was a time when HF Flying Circus from the Czech Republic was pursuing the 20+ indoor scoring benchmark, as the NSL News reported several times. That was not too long ago since the team entered the AAA Class world only at the beginning of the 2017 season. Little over a year later, the team is well settled on a significantly higher level. It was the team's third visit at Bedford for the World Challenge 2018, after winning the Rookie Class in 2015 and an 18th place in the AAA Class last year. The 12th place this month with a 22.2 average was not enough yet to make the last cut and the Top... (more)
Did you know that three German 4-way Women teams performed 18 different sequences on two different leaderboards?
posted: Apr 18th, 2018 The NSL News mentioned during the recent coverage of the World Challenge 2018 that Germany held the first national indoor championships exactly on the weekend of the biggest 4-way competition in the world in Bedford, and that one German 4-way team still made the trip to England despite the scheduling conflict. The AAA Class competition in Germany did not offer any surprises. Airbus and AtomiX maintained approximately the same distance that they were separated by at the outdoor championships last year, considering the difference between indoor and outdoor averages. Both teams were separated by... (more)
Did you know that re-judging is not always a promising option at the World Challenge?
posted: Apr 17th, 2018 The World Challenge has always applied a special set of rules and regulations that have been tailored to the event ever since host Paul Mayer launched it in 2006. Most of them are identical or similar with the FAI/IPC rules, and it is not very difficult for the visiting FAI/IPC judges to apply them. Paul Mayer added the NSL competition classes piece by piece, which are not a part of the FAI/IPC format (A - Rookie), and offered the AA Class competition, as well, which has now become the 4-way Junior category at FAI/IPC indoor events. The World Challenge included a default Super Sequence in... (more)
Did you know that the complete Chicas lineup of 2006 - 2008 competed at the World Challenge?
posted: Apr 17th, 2018 The whole Chicas story began actually in 2003, 15 years ago. France was still far away from gold medals in 4-way Women, and the British female 4-way competitors dominated the event, while the Norgie Girls were the most popular team in this new FAI/IPC category. Current Chicas member Marion Thomas had attended the first 4-way Women world meet competition as the alternate for the German national team Parat in Spain 2001 before the Chicas were formed in 2003, only with Petra Baerenfaenger and Sylvia Maier in the lineup. It was a different team that competed at the World Challenge 2018 and visited... (more)
Did you know that penalties can also have a good side at the Shamrock Showdown?
posted: Apr 16th, 2018 Indoor events have been keeping the NSL News busy and the audience entertained, before and after the first major outdoor competition of the year was completed, the Shamrock Showdown 2018. In fact, the NSL Calendar of Events is showing 19 single events this year, disregarding World Tunnel League and Indoor Cloud League. The NSL Calendar of Events is not comprehensive, and there have probably been additional indoor or outdoor meets this year, which are not in the NSL records. However, the existing data is showing that three of the 19 listed events were outdoor competitions, including the Shamrock... (more)
