Did you know that two Black Cat members know how to win 4-way bronze medals?
posted: May 14th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News started a series of previews that introduces the top contenders for medals at the Mondial 2016 in September. In fact, it is mostly the story of the bronze medal position, as the battle for the gold medals will most likely be an exclusive affair between NMP PCH HayaBusa and Arizona Airspeed. The series began on May 2nd with the situation of the reigning bronze medalist of Prostejov 2014, Evolution from Canada, followed by more details of the French national team in 4-way Open on May 4th. The audience still has FLY-IN France in 1st place in the race for the bronze... (more)

Did you know that the FAI/IPC cuts for semi-finals and finals are history?
posted: May 13th, 2016 Semi-finals and finals have been a part of the Formation Skydiving competition rules at FAI World Championships and FAI World Cups for over 20 years. In the earlier years, the number of teams who would be eliminated after Round 8 and then Round 9 depended on the total number of participating teams (50% of all teams after Round 8, another 50% after Round 9). The elimination rules changed in 2000, and exactly ten teams made it to Round 9 for the first time at the World Meet 2001 in Spain. Only six of the ten teams then continued in Round 10. This format has been applied ever since, and the Sun... (more)

Did you know that MWSL team EXtreme was challenged by two junior teams at the IBA indoor meet in Rosemont?
posted: May 12th, 2016 A small 4-way competition was a part of the recent IBA Indoor Competition Series event at iFLY Rosemont in Chicago. One of the Midwest Skydiving League teams used the indoor competition to get some meet practice before the start of the MWSL 2016 outdoor season. SDC EXtreme came back with three original team members of 2014 and 2015 (Stanley Bukala, Gene Keturakis, Vince Kramolinski) and new EXtremist Andrzej Nycz. It was the first indoor competition for SDC EXtreme, after six MWSL outdoor meets in the last two years, three in the A Class of 2014 and three in the AA Class of 2015. EXtreme... (more)

Did you know that three DeLand Norgies were back in 4-way action?
posted: May 11th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News briefly mentioned the Nordic Indoor Championships 2016 with yesterday's update from Denmark. Pangaea had attended the indoor competition at VossVind after winning the DFU Cup. The Nordics were a Scandinavian extension of the Norwegian national indoor championships, which were held in 2015 for the first time. The event was the second combined Scandinavian indoor competition, as teams from Finland and Sweden joined for their national championships earlier this year. The Sun Path Products reported on February 18th. The Nordics brought one team from the fourth Scandinavian... (more)

Did you know that Valkyria from Denmark is qualified for the Mondial 2016?
posted: May 10th, 2016 The annual DFU Cup in Denmark is usually a warm-up competition for the domestic teams to get ready for the national championships. This year, it had more relevance than in the past. Denmark's skydiving federation (DFU) has been considering sending a national team in 4-way Women to the World Championship of Formation Skydiving at the Mondial 2016 later this year, and the DFU Cup offered the opportunity for Danish teams to qualify for the event. The qualification standard for the female 4-way event was set at the 10-average benchmark, which turned out to be no serious obstacle for Valkyria. Denmark... (more)

Did you know that there is more to Girl Power in skydiving competition?
posted: May 9th, 2016 It was September 2013 when I last touched on the delicate subject of gender separation in our sport. I had finally made peace with the fact that there are two different belly-flying 4-way categories that the International Parachuting Committee (IPC) had forced upon us: one only for girls and the other one for everybody. I had argued the logic of the IPC move since the new category was introduced in 2001 and gave us new and additional 4-way world champions on a performance level that was significantly below the 4-way open class scoring level. I felt bad for the female 4-way open class world champions... (more)
