It may have been the ultimate challenge this year, and it still was not the last one. HayaBusa and High Rollers both added one more very long trip to the 2017 meet agenda and competed once more, this time at the Flight Fighters in Bahrein, host of the FAI Indoor World Cup 2018.
It was the same showdown as at the previous six events that both teams had attended with the same signature lineups, showcasing the very best of what 4-way Formation Skydiving competition has to offer at this point in time.
Both teams once again exchanged blows round by round, and the same team ended up as the winner in this incredible indoor duel that began at the Clash of Champions in November 2015 in Dubai. HayaBusa finished in the top spot with an 8-point advantage this time, after the better performance on the second meet day.

The penalty situation was one of the main factors at the final HayaBusa - Weembi 2017 showdown in Bahrein, especially on the second day. As always, both teams were on the same pace level and had completed almost exactly the same number of formations in the 210 seconds of the first six rounds, HayaBusa 191 and the High Rollers 190.
HayaBusa was only one point cleaner than Weembi in the same six rounds (6 - 7) and had thus worked out a thin 2-point lead at the end of the first day.
The pace level was even closer throughout the remaining four rounds. It was in fact exactly the same breath-taking speed that both teams were show-casing once again. The Weembi High Rollers matched Hayabusa's 139-point total for the last four rounds and was one single point behind the Belgian pace after all ten rounds.

Clash of Champions 2015
The biggest loss came at the wrong time. The Weembi team had started the second day with a winning round, which was the fourth consecutive sole highscore and reduced the HayaBusa lead to one single point after Round 7. The 4-point deduction in Round 8 killed the 4-round momentum, and the HayaBusa lead was back up to four points.
The Belgian world champions never looked back after Round 8 and eventually finished eight points ahead. The new Weembi - HayaBusa showdown included once again all the drama that a 4-way competition can offer, and Weembi's High Rollers will hopefully continue to challenge the Belgians next year.
The 2018 season will offer enough new indoor opportunities, and the 2017 season seems to be over now, at least for NMP PCH HayaBusa and Weembi High Rollers...
