Did You Know...

... that the 4-way juniors have boosted their confidence in different ways?

Skydive Recruitz at the World Challenge 2017
posted Apr 13th, 2019 - The World Challenge was also the final test before the FAI Indoor World Meet 2019 for Skydive Recruitz, the British team that will compete in 4-way Junior at Weembi Lille next week.

The British 4-way juniors posted their scores one more time on the A Class leaderboard in Bedford, even though they will have to apply the AA Class dive pool for the FAI competition. The ten A Class rounds at the World Challenge included only eight of the 16 blocks, which will be drawn from for the 8-round competition at Weembi Lille.

However, it was probably still a confidence booster for the Recruitz, as they posted a new team record average for this category. They started in the Rookie Class of 2017 and moved up into the A Class at the World Challenge 2018. The FAI Indoor World Meet will be the team's first AA Class competition, and it is also the first time that the British FAI delegation includes a 4-way Junior team.

The 15.5 record average also won the bronze medals for the Recruitz at the World Challenge. MAD Team from Poland left the rest of the A Class field in the dust, after they had done the same on the Rookie Class leaderboard of 2018. Romania's Flying Penguins moved up from 6th place last year to the silver medal position last weekend.

A Class medal winners at the World Challenge 2019: MAD Team - Flying Penguins - Skydive Recruitz


Rookie Class winner 2018 - A Class winner 2019: MAD Team
The Czech 4-way Junior team, HF Cubs, went once again the other way and completed ten AAA Class rounds last week before stepping back down into the AA Class with only eight rounds and much easier sequences.

The HF Cubs boosted their own confidence level in a very different way and finished with a new team record average in the AAA Class.

On top of that, they challenged the Czech national team in 4-way Open, HF Flying Circus, harder than ever before. It was the first time that they won or tied four of the ten rounds at the April meet of the World Tunnel League.

It was not a weak performance by HF Flying Circus at all that allowed the HF Cubs to get closer. In fact, Flying Circus finished with a new team record average, as well, and posted their first 25+ average.

The most current NSL Power Rankings was showing the Czech national team just out of the Top 10 spots on the Open Class leaderboard for the indoor world meet. It seems to require a 25+ average to make it to the Top 10, and HF Flying Circus had their own confidence booster at the right time, as well.

The HF Cubs are not dealing with a Top 10 finish. They are the defending bronze medalists in 4-way Junior at the last indoor world cup and indoor world meet both. They will step up into the silver medal position, as Canada has not registered a 4-way Junior team. The Air Devils had placed 2nd at the world meet in Montreal 2017 and then won the world cup gold medals last year in Bahrain.

Russia is back with a 4-way Junior lineup who competed two times last year, including the FAI European Indoor Championship 2018. They are probably the top contender for the bronze medals next week, while Aerokart A'demie and HF Cubs will take the two top spots.

The 4-way Junior competition on the top of the AA Class leaderboard will feature a showdown between four young ladies from the Czech Republic and four young men from France. The 4-way juniors don't have a separate leaderboard as in 4-way Open and 4-way Women for senior 4-way competitors.

The HF Cubs are still the underdogs, even though both teams have not posted AA Class scores since the indoor world cup last year. There was only a 7-point difference between the two teams in Bahrain last year, and the French juniors had already competed in the AAA Class before, as well. This year, the HF Cubs have copied the French approach, and Aerokart Ak'demie are still ahead with their previously posted AAA Class scores...
