There has been a lot of drama in those battles for the top spot, and the most famous one was probably at the World Cup 2013 when the Deep Blue Defenders and the Golden Knights were still tied after a jump-off round and had to go through the rules book to break the tie.
The latest battle took place at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014, and it was featured by the Sun Path Products NSL News on 24 September 2014.
|World Meet 2014||Rd. 1||Rd. 2||Rd. 3||Rd. 4||Rd. 5||Rd. 6||Rd. 7||Rd. 8||Rd. 9||Rd. 10||Total||Avg|
|1||French Girls (FR)||21(-2)||25||22||20(-1)||27||21||18||17||19||24||214||21.4|
|2||Golden Knights (US)||22||25||21||21||23(-2)||18(-1)||16(-1)||15||19||24||204||20.4|
The story on 2 November 2014 was published after the USPA Nationals 2014 where the Golden Knights finished with a new team record average (21.4) which matched the French average at the world meet in Prostejov.
|World Cup 2013||Rd. 1||Rd. 2||Rd. 3||Rd. 4||Rd. 5||Rd. 6||Rd. 7||Rd. 8||Rd. 9||Rd. 10||Rd. 11||Total||Avg|
|1||Aerodyne French Girls||21||27||16||18||20||17||17||23||24||20||17||220||20.0|
The 2014 scoring progression was impressive, and the new French lineup with two returning French Girls is in the situation of having to catch up with the Golden Knights on the top level. French coach Marin Ferre has done exactly that quite a few times with his new lineups.
He has Solly Williams in the other corner, who has guided the Golden Knights to the 21.4 average this year. The coming two years will most likely bring back the same battles for the top position in 4-way Women that the audience could enjoy in the last four years. The outcome could be reversed this time...
