Andre Ferraz and Juliana Sé were not available for the November meet, and CTR Optimum needed two substitutes. George Narita and Daiton Ribeiro recruited Beatriz Ohno and Deborah Schroder for the competition, who train and compete with CTR Storm. Their own team had attended the first two WTL meets this year in April (17.5) and June (17.9) and had no plans for the November meet.
SO Pressao and Go Fly pushed each other to 20+ averages in an exciting 1-point battle, and CTR Optimum had to accept their first defeat by any other Brazilian teams since 2005.
World Tunnel League November 2019 - Brazil
André Ferraz is the only original CTR Optimum member in the current lineup, even though he missed the November meet. So Pressao had an indoor comeback with the 2005 lineup who competed when André Ferraz launched the Brazilian Tunnel League in December 2018.
The So Pressao comeback peaked with the team's first 20+ indoor average this month, which was also enough to outscore Go Fly by one single point. Both teams had their previous 1-point battle in December 2018, at So Pressao's comeback event after the 14-year break. Go Fly won this duel at the April meet, and So Pressao turned the table again at the November meet, this time with the 1st place after the next 1-point battle.
Go Fly had a personnel change at the last meet of the Brazilian Tunnel League (Circuito Brasileiro de Paraquedismo Indoor of 2019) at IFLY São Paulo, as well. Isabela Castro was in Renato Diogo's tail slot for the meet, together with joined Fabiano Florio, Ricardo Pereira and Pedro Ushizima.

The WTL leaderboard is not complete yet, as Finland's 4-way teams are still coming together for their last 2019 meet in Helsinki. The Pro Team will take on the 25.0 average that the HF Cubs posted on the top of the leaderboard, and a few other Finnish teams have the potential to outscore the three Brazilian AAA Class teams behind HF Cubs and HF Flying Circus.
The November leaderboard of the World Tunnel League will most likely set a new participation record, and a new WTL record average in the AAA Class would be no surprise...
