Bodyflight Bedford has set a cut at the total number of 40 teams, and the slots for the popular windtunnel competition filled up quickly. The names of the 39 currently registered teams can be found at the event page. The 40th slot can be secured by getting in touch with Bodyflight Bedford's management.
The FSL Shamrock Showdown 2008 has the team cut at a total of 24 teams. The record participation of 22 registered teams still leaves room for two more teams.
Fábio Diniz is also a member of the Brazilian national 4-way team, CTR Optimum. His team recently completed its first training camp of 2008 in Arizona. CTR Optimum trains and competes with the same lineup this year: Andre Ferraz (Point), Pedro Ushizima Jr. (Center Inside), Fabio Diniz (Tail), Ziara Abud (Center Outside), Renato "Gordinho" Acerbi (Camera).
Coach Craig Girard introduced the Pilatus Porter to the national team at this camp since CTR Optimum will represent Brazil at the World Championship of Formation Skydiving in France this year. The team completed six hours of windtunnel training and almost 40 jumps in six days of training.
The team plans for 2008 include another camp at Skydive Arizona before the World Championship and training in Brazil, as well. The Brazilian Nationals 2008 will be held in September this year. The same CTR Optimum lineup will try to win the national 4-way title for the sixth consecutive time.
The upcoming season opener in Brazil will show the results of the first training camp for CTR Optimum. The Brazilian team aims at a 16.0 average in 2008. The AAA Class competition at the FSL Shamrock Showdown 2008 will make it very challenging for any team to make it into the top ten of the upcoming meet weekend's leaderboard...
