The series of nerve-wrecking competition began with the highly anticipated 8-way battle for the world's top spot at the FAI Tanay Mondial 2020. The same event also featured the 2-point upset in 4-way Women, where the Russian Bubbles dethroned the French world champions of 2018.
The same event included a drama in the race for the FAI bronze medals in 4-way Women that was eventually concluded in the conference room of the judges and the jury.
Then came the British drama at the national championships, where not even an extra jump-off round could break the tie between NFTO and Chimera. Once again, the winner had to be found in the rules book, this time without controversy. It was still not the end, as Germany's Oceanside AtomiX and Airbus Illertissen had their own dramatic finish of the national championships in the Super Sequence of Round 10.

The Polish Nationals 2021 were very meaningful, as it was a comeback for the country's 4-way outdoor competition. The last national outdoor championships were held in 2014 where No Mercy and Sky4Four both competed with their first lineups, which included Irishman Gordon Hodgkinson for Sky4Four.
It did not become much easier for No Mercy on home turf, compared to the drama at the world meet. FlySpot Sky4Four is a well trained team, with three of the original team members of 2015 (Anna Baranski, Michal Baranski, Zbigniew Kordzikowski) still in the current lineup.
No Mercy know each other even better, as all original members of 2014 (Kinga Komorowska, Karina Laszuk, Iwona Raczkiewicz, Maja Wazniewicz) competed in Tanay and at the national championships, with Mariusz Pawlowski on camera.

SkyDive Warszaw, now with two Cessna Caravans available, was eventually ready to organize national championships this year. FlySpot Sky4Four member Michal Baranski said that the skydiving center also wanted to use the event to learn and collect hosting experiences, possibly even for other high-profile events in the future.
The weather was not perfect for the event, and the training day was rained out completely. The meet began with the official training jump and the first two competition rounds on Wednesday, before strong winds interfered throughout the whole meet. However, the 10-round meet was still completed and featured the exciting 1-point battle.
The competition pressure generated the highest 10-round average in history by a team from Poland. No Mercy had a 15.5 average after Round 6 at the world meet in Tanay, and Sky4Four finished with 15.0 after Round 10 in Poland. The new 4-way champions plan to improve the record average soon at the 6th DIPC in December. Coach David Grauwels will compete at the same event with the reigning 4-way world champions from Belgium.
