AtomiX YUU won the AAA Class competition in Germany easily and finished on top of the combined leaderboard. AtomiX was still not very happy with the 10-round performance, as the German team has scored significantly higher last year and was aiming at a higher meet average than the 15.5 that won the AAA Class competition last weekend.
The German team in 2nd place, Wolfpack, even outscored AtomiX in Round 10. The German national championships are scheduled for the last August weekend, where AtomiX will try to challenge the reigning Airbus 4-way champions once again for the top spot in Germany.
Airbus is dealing with their own troubles, as inside center Joern Thiele injured his shoulder and will not be able to recover quickly enough to compete at the German Nationals 2018. Chances are better that he will still be ready for the trip to Australia in October and the 4-way competition at the FAI World Meet 2018.

The team members have been jumping together in one capacity or another for roughly three years and decided to team up for the 2018 season. Skydive Elsinore's events coordinator Mary SantAngelo said that the Elevate members are a constant fixture at Skydive Elsinore: "When they're not training, you can find them load organizing most weekends, coaching FS skills camps, or just plain having fun at the DZ."
Player-coach Josh Hall is a former member of Arizona Airspeed. He was recruited after the USPA Nationals 2010 where he still competed with Perris Fury, Airspeed's strongest opponent. He joined the new Airspeed lineup of 2011/2012 with three new members (Josh Hall, Thomas Hughes, Niklas Hemlin). Only Mark Kirkby had come back from the previous Airspeed lineup.
Josh Hall trained and competed with Airspeed for two years and won the FAI 4-way gold medals for the U.S. delegation at the Mondial Dubai 2012 after a dramatic 10-round battle with NMP PCH HayaBusa.

The Czech teams were between the two other two events with seven completed rounds in Most. HF Flying Circus in the team's second AAA Class year had launched the 2018 outdoor season with an impressive 13.8 average in May. The two faster rounds after Round 7 would have probably lifted last weekend's meet average before the slow sequence of Round 10.
The first seven rounds of last weekend's competition draw each had two blocks in the sequence. In fact, only Round 8 had one block and three random formations, before two more blocks in Round 9 and the 3-block sequence of Round 10 slowed down the scoring on the final stretch.
HF Flying Circus are still launching a Satellite (Random Formation O) for each exit, which is also causing a slower scoring start into the working time of 35 seconds.
