Did you know that the race for new USPA Advanced Class medals has begun?
posted: May 26th, 2019 The NSL News reported at the beginning of the year that SDC RhEvolution XP planned to move up into AAA Class competition after a 2nd place at the USPA Nationals 2018 in the AA/Intermediate Class. The Midwest Skydiving League team had another change in the lineup before they attended the first competition in the new category, the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship. Jason Krumholz had joined the team in the middle of the 2018 season, while Greg Oldendick completed the 2019 lineup after Josh Reinert stepped back.

Did you know that you have to be a maniac if you want to get everything out of you?
posted: May 24th, 2019 It has been about time for a new NSL Profile, and there could not be a better opportunity than a freshly crowned world champion. In fact, there has been a celebrity in Formation Skydiving competition for a long time who had not been added to the list of outstanding members of the 4-way and 8-way community. Kirk Verner actually won his 5th FAI gold medal at the FAI Indoor World Meet in April this year. He took his first FAI 4-way gold medal with Arizona Airspeed in 1995 and has been performing on the world's top level ever since. That will make for a 25-year period in Tanay 2020, where he will...

Did you know that VossVind Girls and HF Cubs share some of their 4-way Junior history?
posted: May 23rd, 2019 The presentation of the combined AAA Class leaderboard (4-way Open - 4-way Women) of the FAI Indoor World Meet, which was posted with the news update on April 29th, pointed out that a 20+ average was necessary to stay away from the bottom of the 4-way Open Class meet rankings. The lowest result in this category was an 18.3 average, while Skynamite from Germany needed a 21.0 average to fend off the young Norwegian VossVind Girls in 4-way Women by one single point. The three teams at the bottom of the 4-way Women leaderboard still left three Open Class teams behind, all of them with all-male lineups. In... (more)
Did you know that Echochamber continue with two different indoor and outdoor lineups?
posted: May 21st, 2019 Of all participants at the FAI Indoor World Meet, the Swedish national 4-way Open Class team Echochamber may have been first in launching the 2019 outdoor season, even earlier than NMP PCH HayaBusa and NFTO recently in Empuriabrava, Spain. Echochamber was already back in action at the end of April when they traveled to Skydive Arizona for a spring training camp. It was Echochamber's outdoor lineup that launched the 2019 season, which has team coach Mattias Nord in the active lineup. Martin B├Ącklin steps back once again after completing the indoor winter season at Weembi Lille in April. Echochamber... (more)

Did you know that Kate Lindsley and Sian Stokes have a common 4-way history?
posted: May 19th, 2019 The other recent NSL Live Talk with the complete NFTO lineup during the team's training camp in Empuriabrava did not relate to any anniversaries or other reasons for celebration or team pranks. The update covered mostly the team situation at the beginning of the 2019 outdoor season. There was still a special occasion in Spain, which happened at the very beginning of the training camp. The first training jump was also the first time that NFTO had newest member Kate Lindsley in the lineup for an exit from a jump plane. She had joined the team after the FAI Outdoor World Meet and started with an... (more)
