Did you know that the Monaco Parachute Team is back for outdoor training and competition? posted: Sep 24th, 2021 It was in August 2015 when the Monaco Parachute Team attended their last outdoor competition. It was the French national championship, where the Monaco members have been competing since they started skydiving. The NSL News had introduced the Monaco team project with an overview on 18 May 2007.
Two of the original ream members, Jeff Ronzevalle and Didier Boignon, were former French national champions and competed for France at several world meets and world cups. They were not done yet with 4-way and 8-way competition and finally formed the Monaco Parachute Team, with some support by the constitutional... (more)
Did you know that it takes all attention and a full-hearted change of lifestyle to become a 4-way world champion? posted: Sep 23rd, 2021 The NSL News had the complete current lineup of Arizona Airspeed available for NSL Live Talk several times since it was formed for the new Airspeed 4-way cycle, beginning with the 2020 season.
Usually the conversations are taking place when NSL News and Airspeed visit the same events. However, NSL Live Talk eventually had to adjust to the realities of the corona virus crisis, as well, and many of the interviews were recorded on Zoom. They were still live and unfiltered, even though the actual live atmosphere was surely different.
It seems unlikely that the logistics of NSL Live Talk at events... (more)
Did you know that British Army Volt4ge and Belgian High Voltage are both national AA Class champions? posted: Sep 22nd, 2021 One of the twelve teams on the Belgian leaderboard started even later, compared to AAA Class teams Ayro and Falco, and still went through all three competition classes. High Voltage launched their team project in 2018, and four of the original team members (Lena Clynhens, Evelyne Wauters, Maxim Paternoster, Johannes Wirt on camera) have moved from the Rookie Class of 2018 to AA competition this year.
High Voltage are actually the new Belgian AA Class champions, as the two 4-way teams from Qatar could not win medals. High Voltage will probably join Ayro, Falco and Phoenix on the AAA Class leaderboard... (more)
Did you know that the original Ayro lineup defeated Falco for the first time in Belgium? posted: Sep 21st, 2021 The NSL News covered the comeback of the Belgian team ISR FireFlash on September 10th, and NSL-TV now follows up with the competition videos, with the help of Ayro videographer Gerrit Tielens. His team has had a friendly rivalry with Falco since 2017 and finished ahead for the first time.
4-way competition in Belgium currently features three different levels in AAA Class competition. NMP PCH HayaBusa has been the best 4-way team in the world since 2014 when they won their first FAI gold medals in Prostejov. They have defended them successfully ever since with different lineups.
ISR FireFlash,... (more)
Did you know that Airbus 8 and MicroClim8 were in similar situations? posted: Sep 20th, 2021 The NSL News mentioned during the aftermath of the UK Nationals that the German (Airbus 8) and the British (MicroClim8) 8-way national teams would only be able to compare their scores indirectly this year. Both teams had planned to compete at the FAI Tanay Mondial 2020 and withdrew from participating at the event due to the implications of the corona virus crisis.
Both teams have been competing with and against each other at the world meets in 2016 and 2018, and MicroClim8 had the upper hand at both events. Both teams usually compete for the top position behind the 8-way teams of the 8-way powerhouses... (more)
Did you know that only Doug Barron continues for SDC Rhythm XP after the USPA Nationals? posted: Sep 19th, 2021 This weekend's new scores from the Midwest Skydiving League are coming just a few days after a surprising announcement from the most prominent 4-way representative of this U.S. region and a league of the NSL Network where SDC Rhythm XP have continued a long tradition of Midwest 4-way competition in the most successful way.
JaNette and Steve Lefkowitz launched the SDC Rhythm XP team project in the Midwest from scratch in 2007 and won the first USPA 4-way championship title for this region of the United States. The current lineup are still the reigning national 4-way champions and won silver medals... (more)
