... that the combined leaderboard features additional world meet battles?

3rd Place on Combined Leaderboard: Aerodyne French Girls
posted Oct 24th, 2018 - It is well known by now that the French national team in 4-way Women, Aerodyne Weembi Girls, won the gold medals in their category at the FAI World Meet 2018 and would have placed 3rd on the 4-way Open Class leaderboard with the highest average of any all-female teams in the history of the sport.

The NSL News also pointed out that the British national team in the same event, NFTO, finished in the Top 10 on the combined leaderboard of all 4-way teams that used the same competition draw.

NFTO were turning their bronze medals in 4-way Women of 2016 into silver behind Aerodyne French Girls in Australia this month at the same time.

The NSL News now features the complete combined leaderboard with all teams that are not as well trained as the medal winners and the Top 10 finishers.

The exciting battle for bronze medals in 4-way Women was covered on 14 October 2018, with all other five teams behind Aerodyne French Girls and NFTO posting highscores between each other, and with three of the five teams finishing within two points for the bronze medal position.

Together in 8-way: Indirect 4-way opponents Ann-Marie Jarzebowski and Tanya Cale
It was still not only the French winner and NFTO who have been orienting their performances and scoring level with eyes on the Open Class leaderboard, as well. They were not really challenged for their finishing positions in 4-way Women and could find their competition only by comparing their own scores with the ones in 4-way Open.

There were also similar additional battles across the two 4-way leaderboards with identical competition draws between the five bronze medal contenders in 4-way Women and their indirect opponents on the 4-way Open leaderboard.

However, the three 4-way Women teams who eventually finished with only a 2-point difference between each other (Team X, Sweden - Phoenix XP, United States - Boomerang Betty, Australia) were also glued to each other on the combined leaderboard. Rotor Out, Australia's national team in 4-way Open, finished three points ahead of the female 3-team block that included Boomerang Betty, Australia's national team in 4-way Women.

Both Australian 4-way teams included members with double duties who also competed together for the Australian 8-way lineup, Rotor Out's Tanya Cale and Boomerang Betty's Ann-Marie Jarzebowski. They battled with MicroClim8 for the 4th place on the 8-way leaderboard, as well.

End of bronze medal contention after Round 6: Skynamite
CTR Optimum from Brazil, also with a female 4-way competitor, Juliana Sé, in the lineup, squeezed themselves in between the same three 4-way Women teams and Fuzion Voltige from Canada. The Brazilian team finished with exactly the same average that they had posted at the national championships in July this year.

Germany's team in 4-way Women, Skynamite, finished with a team record average and still ended up at the bottom of the 4-way Women leaderboard after a very promising start into the competition. Skynamite was four points ahead of bronze medal winner Team X after Round 2 and still tied with the Swedish team after Round 5. The 27-pointer for the Super Sequence in Round 6 was the end of the bronze medal contention.

Skynamite was still engaged in a 1-point battle with Papea Masculino from Spain after the Germans had fallen behind in 4-way Women, and they had to fend off Out of the Blue from the Netherlands in the last two rounds.

Papea Masculino was the only all-male team in this mix of all-female bronze medal contenders. In fact, all teams on the combined leaderboard between 13th and 23rd place had either all-female or mixed-gender lineups, except for the 4-way Open Class team from Spain...
