Did You Know...

... that the World Challenge 2015 has a very strong and colorful early field?

SportLoto at the World Challenge 2014
posted Jan 28th, 2015 - The registration process for the World Challenge 2015 was in full swing while 4-way teams were competing at the Wind Games 2015.

Several of the teams who competed last weekend had signed up for the 10-year anniversary of the World Challenge before traveling to Spain. NMP-PCH Hayabusa, Gavroche, Thunder, Voodoo, Bad Boys and Jazz Republic will compete again in 4-way Open, and the HF Chicks will take on more AAA Class teams in 4-way Women at Bodyflight Bedford, including the CZ Ladies.

SDC Rhythm XP will use NMP-PCH Hayabusa to measure themselves indirectly with Arizona Airspeed, and SportLoto from Russia will join Thunder ISR's next attempt to outscore Gavroche over ten rounds. The Russian team is still recruiting the 4th member who will complete this year's lineup with Egor Gusev, Andrew Kharitonov and Dmitriy "Dima" Samokhval. The winner of this 3-team battle is probably the unofficial amateur indoor world champion.

Registered AAA Open: SDC Rhythm XP (US), Gavroche (FR), SportLoto (RU), Thunder ISR (BE), Voodoo (ZA), Vision 99 (UK), Bad Boyz (CZ), Anti Matter (UK), Artemis Saumur RealFly (FR), Weembi Lille (FR), Jazz Republic (ZA), Lupus (EE), Funnel Vision (UK), Neugomon (RU) (EE), Co-Motion (INT), Not Yet Decided (DK)
Registered AAA Women: HF Chicks (CZ), CZ Ladies (CZ), Les Stunts (BE)
Registered AA Class: Fly Wild (UK), Blue Rebels (GR), No Mercy (PL), Fr4ment (UK), AirRush (DK), ChatterChicks (UK)
Registered A Class: Team Rudi (BE), VossVind Girls (NO), Flyspot Chicks (PL), Satori Aqua (UK), Hybris (DK)
Registered Rookie Class:Jetmax (BE), Blackhawk (UK)
New 21+ team record average: Bad Boys
Voodoo and Bad Boys just ended up next to each other at the Wind Games. The Czech national 4-way team posted another team record average (21.2) above the 21-average benchmark for the first time, while most of the other teams did not reach their previous best numbers. Voodoo will compete again with Liz Matthews at the World Challenge, who was also in the lineup at the UK Nationals 2014 and the Bodyflight Revenge.

Former Voodoo member Colin Rothman joins Jazz Republic, which gives the lineup finally the South African majority, with InTime owners Claire King and Dirk Venter once again providing the scoring system and competing at the same time.

Vision 99 will challenge Voodoo, the official British national 4-way team of 2015, after winning the UK Nationals last year. The winner of the UK Nationals 2015 will compete for Great Britain at the World Meet 2016. Vision 99 was the UK national 4-way team in Prostejov 2014 and will try to compete at the next world meet, as well.

Two consecutive gold medals for France in 4-way Women: Perrine Sanchez (right)
Anti Matter and Funnel Vision are two more UK teams in the AAA Open Class field. Anti Matter has competed in this category since 2013, while Funnel Vision enters the AAA Class competition for the first time. It is also the team's first indoor competition in the SKYLEAGUE.COM records.

Artemis Saumur has been the French B-Team, and new French Girls member Clementine LeBohec grew out of it and into the national 4-way team in 4-way Women. Mathieu Bernier, the only Formation Skydiving competitor in history winning gold in 4-way and 8-way at the same world meet (2010), is now the player coach for the French team, while he is also in the national 8-way lineup.

Two of Clementine LeBohec's new team mates (Christine Malnis, Sophia Pecout) have also signed up for the World Challenge 2015, not with the French Girls though. They have a reunion with Perrine Sanchez, who won two consecutive gold medals for France in 4-way Women (2012 - 2014). 4-way and 8-way world champion Julien Degen completes a very strong Weembi Lille lineup.
