SDC Standard XP is back after sitting out last year on home turf at Skydive Chicago. Arizona Arsenal won the gold medals at the USPA Nationals 2013 and then represented the USA at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 in Prostejov a few weeks ago.
Arsenal finished at the world meet with exactly the same meet average (21.0) that Standard had posted at the Mondial Dubai 2012. The 21.0 in Prostejov is the highest average for the Arizona team, above the 20-average level for the first time.

Team4speed announced after winning the gold medals in Prostejov that they will retire from VFS 4-way competition with this lineup. Arizona Arsenal may have an opportunity to go for the world meet gold in 2016, if they can hold off SDC Standard XP again next year.
Arsenal is far ahead of Standard at the moment, however, the Chicago team will probably be eager to compete for the USA on home turf in 2016 and possibly turn the US silver into gold. The other US silver medalists in Prostejov, Arizona Airspeed and Golden Knights in 4-way Women, will share this goal with Arizona Arsenal...
