Did You Know...

... that four French national 4-way teams competed at the French indoor championships?

Julien Degen on his home turf at Weembi Lille
posted Mar 10th, 2019 - The French Indoor Nationals 2019 were completed on Saturday. It was a test for the FAI World Meet 2019 in April only for the French national teams who will also compete at Weembi Lille next month. The event was hosted by iFLY Lyon in a 14-foot flying chamber. The indoor world meet will take place in Weembi Lille's 17-foot flying chamber.

Weembi Lille operator and High Rollers outside center Julien Degen did not have to worry about the meet logistics and could focus only on the 4-way performance of his team. The High Rollers were one of the French national teams who will also compete at the indoor world meet, and Julien Degen will probably be more involved with the logistics on his home turf.

As expected, Weembi High Rollers won the competition easily, while they still finished significantly below their previous meet averages. In fact, the 31.0 was the lowest result since March 2017 when the previous lineup with Mathieu and Guillaume Bernier posted a 30.0 average with Roy Janssen and Julien Degen at the French Indoor Nationals 2017.

However, the scores of other teams at the French Indoor Nationals 2019 indicate that the competition draw was on the slower side, compared to previous events.

The situation behind Weembi High Rollers, the French national indoor team in 4-way Open, was all the more interesting. Three other French national teams attended the event in Lyon, and none of them took the 2nd place behind Weembi High Rollers.

Odin Parachute Systems, with father Arnaud Camproux and daughter Elisa in the lineup, were able to finish with a better meet average compared to the Wind Games 2019, where Weembi High Rollers and Nephtys Weembi had posted significantly higher numbers. Odin Parachute Systems also finished ahead of the other three French national teams in the field.

However, one of the other three French national teams was even more impressive. Aerokart Ak'demie, French national team in 4-way Junior, missed the 2nd place by only five points. Once again the French 4-way juniors competed in the AAA Class, even though they will go back to the AA Class dive pool at the FAI Indoor World Meet in April.

The 25.5 average was a new AAA record number for Aerokart Ak'demie, and it will not be a surprise if the French 4-way juniors will leave behind their own standing 28.8 record for a AA/Junior competition. The Canadian Air Devils posted the highest AA Class average ever with the 30.1 at the FAI Indoor World Cup 2018. The Air Devils will not compete at the indoor world meet in April, and the French 4-way juniors will aim at their own first 30+ average.Odin Parachute Systems and Aerodyne Cypres France at the French Indoor Nationals 2019

The other two French national teams had to settle for 4th and 5th place. Aerodyne Cypres France is the new national outdoor team in 4-way Open, as the NSL News reported on January 25th. In fact, the main focus for the team will be the 8-way event, and 4-way training has lower priority. Weembi High Rollers will represent France in 4-way Open at the indoor world meet.

France has two different national teams in 4-way Women, as well. The outdoor team has not even started training yet with new member Gaelle Giesen. She joined other national competitors with Weembi Mais Graaaave in Lyon, while Sophia Pecout and Christine Malnis train and compete with Weembi High Rollers.

Clementine Le Bohec is the fourth member in the outdoor lineup, and she is also training and competing with the French national indoor team.

Nephtys Weembi will represent France in 4-way Women at the indoor world meet. As Weembi High Rollers, Nephtys Weembi could not post similar scoring numbers as at the Wind Games in January, due to the slower competition draw.

It seems like the competition for 4-way Women indoor medals could become very interesting next month. British team NFTO and new U.S. team XPG4 both seem to be in reach of the top spot, according to the 2019 scores of all three teams...
