Did You Know...

... that the Czech Open Indoor Nationals had record participation?

FAI indoor bronze in Montreal 2017: HF Chicks
posted Jan 24th, 2022 - The latest scores from the Czech Republic fit perfectly into the story line of the recent NSL News updates, which were related to the developments in the 4-way Women event. The story on January 21st covered the new lineup of the U.S. national team XPG4, and the new French 4-way Women lineup was introduced yesterday.

The update from France pointed out that 4-way Women teams from the United States and France are usually medal contenders at world championships and world cups by default. The same surely does not apply to teams from the Czech Republic, even though the HF Chicks won a set of bronze medals in 4-way Women at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017 in a strong field.

It is well known by now that the Czech Republic brought home a second set of FAI indoor medals when the HF Cubs won the 4-way Junior competition at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2019. However, that was three years ago, and the HF Cubs have been training and competing in the AAA Class ever since. They qualify now as the youngest team in the 4-way Women competition.

The HF Cubs are in the middle of their preparations for this year's indoor world cup in April where they will meet the national 4-way Women teams from France and from the United States, and also the reigning outdoor world champions from Russia, Bubbles.

French Weembi Girls - Volition - HF Chicks at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017
FAI indoor junior gold at Weembi 2019: HF Cubs
The same four teams actually competed at Weembi Lille in 2019, as well. The French Weembi Nephtys won the gold medals in 4-way Women, two points ahead of the British team NFTO. XPG4 placed ahead of Bubbles, while the HF Cubs outscored the French Aerokart Ak'demie team in 4-way Junior.

This year's indoor world cup in Charleroi, Belgium, could become the most contended race for medals in 4-way Women if the same four senior teams of 2019 compete at this year's event, where the HF Cubs will try to challenge them for the medal positions.

The HF Cubs picked up the pace again this month and finished with their highest meet average in the team's AAA Class history without a Super Sequence. Only the 27.4 at the Flyspot Polish Open 2019 was higher, boosted by the 45-pointer in Round 4 (B,C,F,G,L).

The 26.8 average this month at the Czech Indoor Open would have won the FAI bronze medals in 4-way Women at the indoor world meet in 2019, and the young Czech ladies still have more than three months to get ready for the meet in Charleroi.

Awards at the Czech Open Indoor Nationals 2022
The Czech Open Indoor Nationals also featured a few guest teams from nearby countries. Bronteroc from Hungary and Synergy from Italy battled for the 3rd place. The Italian team had already traveled to Belgium for the national indoor championships in December 2021 and had a much shorter travel distance to cover to get to the Hurricane Factory in Prague.

The Czech indoor nationals enjoyed record participation, which was strongly supported by the seven Rookie Class teams. Once again, Czech 4-way junior teams were spread out all over the leaderboards in the four NSL categories, and the four youngest Czech teams made the Rookie Class competition the most popular event.

However, the two 4-way seniors teams in the Rookie Class, MCBP and Dycky Most, were back for their next duel, and they keep pushing each other to a scoring level that the youngest junior teams cannot keep up with yet. MCBP took back the top spot that Dycky Most had taken by a single point in December.

Both senior teams had company not only by the junior teams and some of their young family members on the Rookie Class leaderboard. The Moravian Flyers and their Smaljlici junior lineups were also back in action after attending several meets together in 2020 and 2021.
