The team then had to take a break from training for the Mondial 2016 shortly after the completion of the Coupe de France event since point Laurence Herve had to switch to military skydiving duties. France sent two 4-way teams to the 40th CISM World Military Parachuting Championship, which was hosted by Russia this year.
One team competed in the male 4-way category, the other one in the female category. The CISM World Military Parachuting Championship does not have an Open Class for mixed-gender 4-way teams, as the FAI/IPC applies it, without having a male category.
She continued for two more years with the new French Girls lineup and won the next French gold medal in 4-way Women in Prostejov 2014. Then she switched to the French national team in 4-way Open last year who she has been training and competing with ever since.
Laurence Herve had her 2011/2012 French Girls world champion team mate Stephanie Texier in the military lineup at this year's CISM championship, and it was no big surprise that the two 4-way Women world champions finished in the top spot, together with Marie Monate, Deborah Ferrand and Leocadie Odp.
It could have been even much more difficult for France if the Golden Knights had competed in Russia. However, U.S. Army teams have not competed in Russia for many years, and new member JaNette Lefkowitz would probably not be eligible for a CISM championship. Laurence Herve will neither meet the Golden Knights at the Mondial 2016, where she competes in 4-way Open. The new French Girls lineup will be in charge of defending the French gold medals successfully.
The 4-way Men competition at the CISM championship includes NMP PCH HayaBusa and the Qatar Tigers and will be completed tomorrow. The Sun Path Products NSL News will follow up with the scores and more information.
