Did you know that NSL-TV and USPA present all videos of Round 3 in 4-way Open?
posted: Oct 27th, 2015 It turned out that Chris Talbert and Golden Knights team captain Sean Sweeney both did not have enough confidence in the sequence of Round 1 of the 8-way competition at the USPA Nationals 2015. Sean Sweeney proved himself wrong and helped to do something that 8-way teams have tried since 1997 without much success. They scored a new world record for a single round with the 32-pointer in Eloy. The Sun Path Products NSL News will soon follow up with the story of the new world record. For now, the new video clip presents all AAA/Open Class teams with the fastest round in the 4-way Open Class... (more)

Did you know that Round 1 in 8-way has the fastest sequence of the competition?
posted: Oct 27th, 2015 The 4-way leaderboards of the USPA Nationals 2015 are complete, and the 8-way competition has begun. Two of the three 4-way events needed an extra round to determine the USPA medal winners. Only Arizona Airspeed, SDC Rhythm XP and Golden Knights were unchallenged in their medal positions, which are identical with the placing at the USPA Nationals 2014. The Air Force Advanced Class team Smolder, with former Airspeed member Andy Honigbaum coaching, ran away from the field. Perris Quattro, with Airspeed 4-way world champion of 2012, Josh Hall as the player coach, was safely in 2nd place. Event... (more)

Did you know that Arizona Airspeed won the Super Sequence by a point?
posted: Oct 26th, 2015 The next special round at the USPA Nationals 2015 came soon after the meet opener. The sequence of Round 3 (F,9,L,O) offered all AAA Class teams the opportunity to boost the meet averages. The 4-way experts still did not expect any scores that could be close to the standing world record for a single round. It is the 56-pointer (J,M,Q,P,L) that the French national 4-way team of 2010 posted at the world meet in Menzelinsk in Round 3, together with the Russian Sky Panthers. The expectations for the Super Sequence in this Round 3 today went up to the mid-40s, and Arizona Airspeed posted the highest... (more)

Did you know that each Round 1 at a competition is a special mental challenge?
posted: Oct 26th, 2015 The excitement of the event opening with the competition draw is obvious - and still nothing compared to the mental challenge and the emotional situation on the first morning of the competition. 2004 Airspeed 8-way world champion Chris Talbert went back in his memory and recalled as much as possible his own mental status when it was time for competition. He had commented for the Sun Path Products NSL News regularly during the FAI World Cup 2015, as well. The NSL-TV camera was running when the top teams of the Open Class competition got ready for Round 1 on Monday morning. Chris Talbert explained... (more)

Did you know that the Golden Knights will have a very long Monday at the USPA Nationals 2015?
posted: Oct 26th, 2015 The first scores have been posted at the USPA Nationals 2015, and the meet seems to be over after one round, at least in the 4-way Open Class on the top of the leaderboard. Arizona Airspeed put a 5-point cushion between themselves and the challenger, SDC Rhythm XP, which is significantly more than expected. In fact, the Golden Knights are in 2nd place after Round 1. Each competition begins with the opening ceremony and the competition draw. It is the first part of the event, where the excitement begins to materialize more than on the days leading into the competition. The officials, meet... (more)

Did you know that SDC Core's 20.6 average lifts the new US national team straight up to the world's top spot?
posted: Oct 25th, 2015 The first Formation Skydiving event of the USPA Nationals 2015 was completed on Saturday. The 4-way VFS teams have only eight rounds on their agenda, due to a smaller dive pool, and they did all of them on one day. Skydive Chicago is once again hosting the new US national 4-way team, three years after SDC Standard won the USPA Nationals the last time. Arizona Arsenal took over in 2013 and defended the US title successfully after competing for the US delegation at the world meet in Prostejov 2014. Former Dubai Nexus members Jason Russell and Stephanie Strange, silver medalists at the Mondial... (more)
