Did You Know...

... that the Qatar Tigers may have to reset the goals for 2014?

Luc Verstrepen with NMP-PCH Hayabusa in 2008
posted Dec 3rd, 2013 - NMP-PCH Hayabusa had to accept a 22-pointer in Round 6, after a point deduction on the hill. It was the first penalty for the Belgian leader at the 4th Dubai International Parachuting Championship 2013. Barkli was the only other team finishing with a 20-pointer or higher for the slow sequence.

The Sun Path Products NSL News mentioned earlier that the Qatar Tigers have been surprising the other teams, the audience and even their coach Luc Verstrepen with a very impressive performance in Dubai. The Tigers were able to keep up with SDC Rhythm XP through the first four rounds before falling behind in Round 5.

However, the Qatar national team is on its way to the highest meet average in the relatively short team career and may have a chance to finish with a 20+ average. Coach Luc Verstrepen took a few minutes between Round 6 and Round 7 to talk about his experiences with the Qatar 4way project.

Luc Verstrepen
Coach for Qatar Tigers at the 4th DIPC 2013
Luc Verstrepen became the new Center Inside for NMP-PCH Hayabusa when Roy Janssen, Andy and David Grauwels joined the Belgian military services and Sven Ibens stepped back. He competed with Hayabusa at the World Meet 2008 in France and then stepped back, as well.

He became involved with the Qatar Formation Skydiving competition project and has been coaching the Qatar Tigers for two years. His former Hayabusa team mates are now the top 4way team in the world at this point in time and in 1st place at the 4th DIPC 2013. Luc Verstrepen's Qatar Tigers are in 4th place and are also moving very quickly.

The Qatar Tigers had finished with a 17.0 average in 13th place at the Mondial Dubai 2012. It took Satori a 20.0 average to make it to the finals in 6th place in Dubai last year. The Qatar Tigers might be setting a new goal for the World Meet 2014 in Prostejov if the progression continues like that...
