... that AtomiX YUU-Skydive and FSC Remscheid battled throught ten rounds this time?

AtomiX YUU-Skydive with coach Luc Verstrepen
posted Sep 6th, 2015 - The Sun Path Products NSL News has hardly covered much of the AAA Class 4-way competition at the German Nationals so far. Airbus Illertissen once again walked away with the gold medals, as the defending champions did last year.

The best battles for German 4-way and 8-way medals took place in the AA Class categories, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported earlier. However, this does not mean that the AAA Class competition did not have its own exciting competition.

The gold medals were not contended for, while the situation behind Airbus Illertissen offered everything that teams and audience can ask for. There were four of Germany's most experienced 4-way and 8-way competitors (FSC Remscheid) trying to fend off the challenge by a team of the new German 4-way generation (AtomiX YUU-Skydive). Both teams completed approx. 200 training jumps this year before competing in Saarlouis, and they even met earlier this year at another competition.

FSC Remscheid with coach Solly Williams
The competition at the Nordcup at the end of June was a thriller in itself, and FSC Remscheid knew well how tough the competition at the national championships might become.

The young and ambitious team from a growing skydiving center in the northern part of Germany left no doubt that they were planning to aim again at the silver medals that they had won in 2014, when GoJump X-Ray Gransee did not complete the competition in Eisenach.

The scores at the Nordcup 2015 were indicating that AtomiX YUU-Skydive would be competitive, and that's how the competition in Saarlouis began, as well. AtomiX started stronger than Remscheid and had worked out a 5-point lead after Round 7.

AtomiX could have been surprised by their 5-point lead, however, the comfortable lead melted away in Round 8.

Coach Luc Verstrepen now had serious work to do and get the team ready for recovery, which turned out to be successful, as AtomiX took back a 1-point lead in Round 9.

Round 10 could have been a great showdown, as the outcome was wide open with a 1-point difference. It did not happen, as Remscheid melted down in the last round, and AtomiX had the team's best round of the meet, with a 19-pointer and only two points behind Airbus Illertissen. FSC Remscheid then moved on to win the 8-way gold medals, while AtomiX YUU-Skydive celebrated and got ready for the trip to the FAI World Cup 2015.
