However, the 10-round competition of the World Tunnel League in December did not reflect a weak Czech month at all. It was in fact a Czech December sweep, as the top spots in all four categories were taken by Czech 4-way teams at the Hurricane Factory.
HF Flying Circus and HF Chicks finished in the two AAA Class top spots after an exciting internal 1-point battle through all ten rounds. HF Junior Cubs and Elements distanced themselves by very far from all other teams on the AA and A leaderboards. The new Czech 4-way Junior team HF Dragonflies were alone on the top of the Rookie Class.
It was the first time since the introduction of the World Tunnel League last year, with synchronized 10-round draws for all participating teams, that four Czech teams finished on top of all four leaderboards.

HF Flying Circus and HF Chicks were tied in 1st place after Round 6, and Flying Circus posted the higher total for the last four rounds to win by one point. SCZ ZEUS and Accord were also still tied after Round 6, and the Czech team fell behind in the remaining four rounds.
Four AAA Class teams claimed and shared the highscores in the first six rounds, including one of the two U.S. teams, the Cali4nia Raptors. However, the Slovakian Skydive University team took the 3rd place on the 6-round leaderboard. It's the first winter season for Skydive University Slovakia in the AAA Class, and the December competition was the team's second one in the new category, after the 1st place in the AA Class at the World Challenge 2017 and one more CZTL meet in the lower category.
The Slovakian team tied the HF Flying Circus and HF Chicks scores three times over ten rounds. The Czech AAA Class teams now have a new challenger from a neighboring country to deal with.
It was a domestic U.S. duel between Florida team SCZ FurtheranZe XP and 4Tune from Northern California. FurtheranZe was three points ahead after Round 6, and the team's 10-round average dropped only in the last four rounds.
No other adjustments were necessary on the A and Rookie Class leaderboards, where two Czech teams had the top positions. The all-female Elements team was in total control of the A Class competition, and the U.S. team from iFLY SFBay was able to hold off the two junior teams from the Czech Republic.
The 10-round draw for the January competition of the World Tunnel League is posted at the draw overview.
