... that CTR Optimum and Pro Team shared a leaderboard for the first time?

AAA Class awards at iFLY SaoPaulo: CTR Optimum
posted Jul 4th, 2019 - The June meet of the World Tunnel League offered interesting international leaderboards, with teams from Finland, Brazil and the United States.

The rankings were set after the completion of Round 8, even though the Finnish and U.S. teams added two more rounds. The teams of the Brazilian Tunnel League were scheduled for only eight rounds for their competition at iFLY Sao Paulo.

The meet in Sao Paulo attracted eleven of the 23 teams who posted scores on the June leaderboards. The field of AAA Class teams in Sao Paulo included a guest team from neighboring Paraguay, the Adventure Flyers, at their first indoor competition.

CTR Optimum, Brazil's national 4-way team of the past years, won the second indoor meet at iFLY Sao Paulo this year, which was once again organized by CTR Optimum's André Ferraz, one of the original team members. CTR Optimum posted their first scores in 2005 and has competed for Brazil at international events ever since.

CTR Optimum at the FAI World Meet 2018
CTR Optimum finished the most recent meet with a very special and unusual number. The 22.8 average is the third consecutive time with the same score after meet completion and matches the team's results at iFLY Sao Paulo in December 2018 and April 2019. The series of 22.8 averages began after the same lineup had come back from the FAI World Meet 2018 in Australia.

The Brazilian team even matched their outdoor numbers, as well. The 16.4 average in Australia was identical with the 16.4 that CTR Optimum had posted at their national championships in July last year.

Brazil's national 4-way team ended up in 2nd place on June's World Tunnel League leaderboard, as another national team finished with a new team record average. The NSL News reported on June 22nd that the Pro Team from Finland had posted a 26.1 average after all ten rounds.

However, CTR Optimum's third 22.8 average matches their own team record, as well, and the next opportunity comes up at the last indoor meet of the Brazilian tunnel league season in October.

Pro Team at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2019
Finland's Pro Team and CTR Optimum had never been on the same leaderboard before the June meet of the World Tunnel League. Both have competed at FAI world meets and other international meets, but never at the same events.

CTR Optimum competed for Brazil at the FAI World Meet 2006 in Germany and in Maubeuge 2008. Finland did not have a team in Germany, and the Tigers competed for the country in Maubeuge.

The Brazilian team missed Menzelinsk 2010, where the Pro Team attended their first world meet. CTR Optimum was back for the FAI Mondial 2012 in Dubai, where the Silver Knights competed for Finland. The Tigers were back for Finland at the FAI World Meet 2014 without a team from Brazil in Prostejov.

Neither Finland nor Brazil had 4-way teams at the FAI World Meet 2016 in Chicago before CTR Optimum's current lineup traveled to Australia last year, and the Pro Team did not. However, the Finnish team already confirmed their plans for Tanay 2020, and CTR Optimum will probably qualify once again at the upcoming national outdoor championships. The world meet in Russia could become the first live encounter between both teams...
