Did You Know...

... that David Grauwels and Joey Jones had scoring numbers for the last three Rhythm rounds?

SDC Rhythm XP at Skydive Sebastian
posted Nov 18th, 2020 - Arizona Airspeed was the only team in training on Tuesday, in preparation for the upcoming 4-Way FS Skydiving Championships in Eloy. It became busier on Wednesday when XPG4 and Jerry and the Jets arrived at Skydive Arizona for the last training jumps before Round 1 on Friday morning.

The NSL Cloud Mondial 2020 is coming to the event's conclusion just in time, as four of the top teams on the online leaderboard also compete in Eloy this week.

SDC Rhythm XP uploaded the videos for the remaining three rounds, which are now available for reviews with links on the 0's in Rounds 4, 7 and 8. The only missing piece are the official scores for the three rounds, which will once again come from South Africa, where InTime owners and operators Claire King and Dirk Venter have taken care of the processing and judging.

However, David Grauwels and Joey Jones were back for a new round of NSL Live Talk on Wednesday, and they used their own stop watches and judging experiences to provide preliminary scoring numbers for the three Rhythm rounds. They also evaluated once again the newest competition videos that came from Skydive Sebastian in Florida. Gary Smith was not available to join the NSL Live Talk panel this time, and he will be back when it's time for the next meet in Eloy.

Arizona Airspeed at Skydive Arizona
Arizona Airspeed were in training on Wednesday when David Grauwels and Joey Jones visited Skydive Arizona virtually. It was a significantly slower pace for the full-time team who are used to going back-to-back-to-back on training days and complete 2-digit numbers of training jumps within a few hours.

David Grauwels and Joey Jones explained how their own teams used the days prior to a competition to be best prepared for the most important part of any sport. Training days and competition are very different in many ways. The mindset has to be adjusted early enough to avoid too much of a surprise.

The energy and activity level switches back and forth between resting and full action, which is not a part of a normal training day with back-to-back loads for the top teams who have a full-time agenda. Competitive teams have to learn how to manage the balance between energy input and how to re-activate all senses at the right time. The most experienced teams and competitors in the world know by experience how to master the mental and physical challenge. David Grauwels and Joey Jones provided their feedback during the latest NSL Live Talk conversation.
