The first three rounds are now available on NSL-TV, and they can be reviewed by clicking on the score for a round. The links to videos of the coming rounds will be added later.
The videos are showing three of the six slot switchers that the competition draw brought to all teams. The complete first half of the meet switches the piece partners if the team does not apply a swing move to get back to the top of the first page. There are only six blocks in the dive pool (3, 5, 10, 12, 16, 17) with this specific challenge for either the front or the rear piece, or sometimes even for both (5 and 17).

The chances of having six out of ten rounds with slot switchers and additional memory challenges are almost as little as getting a sequence with five random formations. Judge Zeljko Tanaskovic was responsible for this very special occasion, as he drew the sequences for the World Cup manually out of the box.
The 4way Open Class and 4way Women teams will complete five rounds today, and the 8way and VFS 4way teams will have the Friday morning for themselves.
