News Article Did you know that V-Max wins the game in round 9?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 What a meet. Round nine set the teams in the final medal positions. Nothing will change anymore in the remaining round ten. V-Max showed all the confidence they needed and followed their plan to skydive hard, even as the leader of the pack. It worked. The 16 points for round nine was a good score. However, the security of the gold medal position came more with help by the Norgie Girls. The sympathetic team from Scandinavia did not like this sequence. The exit and their continuity plan forced them into B-slots for the difficult Block 18 (Zircon - Zircon) too many times. And it showed. Missed block... (more)
News Article Did you know that V-Max and Norgie Girls continue the battle?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 The 4-way Women's event has turned into the tightest competition of all events at the World Meet. It was close from the very beginning between the Norgie Girls and V-Max. And it has also been a hot race for the third place between U.S.A., France and Italy. Norway seemed to have the control throughout the first five rounds of the meet until the exit Cat+Acc in round six stopped the dominant performance. V-Max could not hang on to the lead in round seven. However, when they lost their first lead of the whole meet and fell back to the second place, it brought back the British energy that had came...

News Article Did you know that the story of round 7 in 4-way?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 Round seven probably secured the Golden Knights' silver medal. The DeLand Norgies lost a point on the hill due to a non-judgeable formation and another two points after a penalty that was very difficult to detect. The judges needed very sharp eyes for this round since the pace of the top teams was very fast. While the Norgies might have lost all of their small chances for a silver medal, Italy's Sinapsi PD and U.K.'s Sebastian XL gained from Norway's bad luck and are back in touch with the third place. Sinapsi PD moved also one point closer to XL with great score of 22 points. These three teams... (more)
News Article Did you know that the NSL News interviewed Solly Williams?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 NSL NEWS: Solly, we are in the middle of the meet. Let’s go through all the events and begin with the 4-way Open event. How do you see the current situation? SOLLY WILLIAMS: I am not really surprised about anything I see. The positions are as expected. The top teams have only made two jumps; it is very early to say anything. I think we all knew coming here that the French 4-way team is probably currently the fastest team. The first two rounds have shown that they have the pace to prove that. NSL NEWS: How are the "underdogs" doing? SOLLY WILLIAMS: If you want to put the three teams as the... (more)
News Article Did you know that Airspeed took the lead in round 4?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 It was a terrible start into the new competition day for France. No doubt, the double-gold challenge is now in serious jeopardy. The 8-way team fell even further behind in round four this morning. A brainlock at the very end of the sequence caused an incomplete first Accordian of Block 14. Each of the five judges caught the infringement instantly. The working time ended right after the mistake. But the damage was already done. France is now seven points behind the leader in 8-way. It will be very difficult to make up for the lost ground. The competition with the defending world champion from Russia... (more)
News Article Did you know that the story of round 3 in 8-way?
posted: Sep 10th, 2003 Good news for the 8-way fans. The NSL News was able to upload some video files. Round two of the 8-way event can now be viewed with the jumps of France, U.S.A. and Russia. The quality is not that impressive since the moving pictures are still filmed off the large screen in the spectator area. However, it is possible to see enough and get the idea. Hopefully, some 4-way videos will follow later. (more)
