The 4-way Women team, Aerodyne Cypres Maubeuge, did not have the complete lineup available, and national coach Mathieu Bernier filled in for the event. Pamela Lissajoux, who recently re-joined the team, as the NSL News reported on July 20th, could not coordinate her work situation and the 4-way comeback in time to be ready for the competition.
However, she missed only the eight rounds of the 4-way competition and will be back in full action when her team continues with training at the end of September. Pamela Lissajoux is still reigning world champion in 4-way Women, after winning gold at the FAI Outdoor World Meet 2018 in Australia.
The lineup will be different though when she is coming back at the end of the month. Her center partner of 2018, Clementine Praet, did not continue after the FAI Outdoor World Cup 2019, where the new lineup with Gaelle Giesen for Pamela Lissajoux won the 4-way Women event, and where the French 8-way team also placed 2nd, with double duties for all team members.
FAI World Meet 2018
|1||Aerodyne Weembi Girls||FR||29||-1||20||24||22||25||56||-1||23||18||-2||22||18||-1||257||25.7|
FAI Outdoor World Cup 2019
|1||Aerodyne Weembi Girls||FR||17||19||25||20||20||19||20||23||25||-1||21||209||20.9|
Christine Malnis (outside) and Sophia Pecout (inside) switched to the center slots when Gaelle Giesen became the new tail, while Clementine Praet moved to the point slot. Christine Malnis and Sophia Pecout had high-level indoor experiences in the center slots when they competed with Roy Janssen and Julien Degen for the Weembi High Rollers.
Pamela Lissajoux's comeback will create a new slot scramble. She is going back to her outside center slot, and Christine Malnis back to point. This is the same front piece that won silver in 2016 and gold in 2018. The rear piece, with inside center Sophia Pecout and tail Gaelle Giesen, won the gold medals at the outdoor world cup in Eloy in October last year.
Pamela Lissajoux has not worked together with Sophia Pecout in the center yet. Mathieu Bernier was in the center at the national championships last month, and the other three team members were in the slots that they will continue in when Pamela Lissajoux comes back at the end of the month.

In fact, three members of the previous Espoir lineup in 2018 eventually made it to the national teams and are current members in training and competition. Gaelle Giesen, Aurelien Lemaire and Alban Rumolo grew up in the last Espoir B-Team and are now training and competing together for France in 8-way and in 4-way.
Almost all members of the current national teams have spent some time in the Espoir B-Team lineups before they were selected for the highest level of Formation Skydiving competition in France and in the world.
The NSL News had introduced the current Espoir lineup with the update on July 26th. A month later, Elise Poindron, Maxime Lacourt, Mathieu Quizy and Loic Vieira posted their first scores together, with David Ricard on camera. The names will most likely appear again at some time in the future in the lineups of the national teams.
