France did not win gold for the first time since the VFS introduction in 2010, and Evolution sacrificed the bronze medals of 2014 in 4-way Open to turn VFS bronze into silver. France then took back the 8-way silver medal position from Russia.
The Golden Knights finished the 10-round meet with a new record average of 23.9 and missed the 24-level only by a point deduction in Round 10. Team captain Sean Sweeney said that the Golden Knights will continue in 8-way with two new members, as Kurt Isenbarger and Jesse Stahler will not come back with the next 8-way lineup.
FAI Mondial 2016
Airbus also had to deal with the double duties in 4-way and 8-way, which were organized differently at this world meet. Airbus members said that the experience at the Mondial 2016 was not very motivating and encouraging to compete in two events at the same time. They said that it was exhausting to switch back and forth within very short time frames, even though there did not seem to be a need to do that.
More training and the challenging agenda for the Airbus members played out to the advantage of Microclim8. However, it was not only the better logistical situation that helped Microclim8. The British team also finished with the highest meet average (14.0) in UK 8-way history. Congratulations...
