Did you know that Lise Nansen of the DeLand Norgies is in her 32nd year in the sport?
posted: Feb 9th, 2016 One of the many NSL Profiles that need updates is the one of Lise Aune Nansen. It seems like many Formation Skydiving competitors stay in the sport for a very long time, which makes it even more necessary to follow up on the profile stories. Lise Aune Nansen's NSL Profile was published in April 2001, when she was 34 years of age and had 17 years in the sport. The update adds another 15 years to the time in the sport, which makes it 32 years. That's a long time, and Lise Aune Nansen is not an exception. Her name was still Lise Aune 14 years ago, and before she met and married Nikolai Nansen,... (more)

Did you know that the 6-year Texas streak of 4-way medals at USPA Nationals ended in Eloy last year?
posted: Feb 8th, 2016 Something very unusual happened at last year's USPA Nationals. The last time when the three USPA 4-way leaderboards (Open - Advanced - Intermediate) had no team from Texas in the medal positions was in 2008. Lone-Star 4-way teams had not made it often to the medal level on USPA leaderboards before 2008 either. Spaceland Inferno (James Klinge, Alex Pincus, Jim Walker, Dave Burton, with Clint Hillis on camera) won the last gold medals for Texas in the Advanced Class of 2003 before the major draught began.

Did you know that the U.S.A. had five 4-way VFS teams in the world's Top 10 spots last year?
posted: Feb 8th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News completes the closer look at the 2015 world rankings of the International Parachuting Commission (IPC) and Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) with the 4-way VFS teams. As in the 8-way event, there is only a combined leaderboard for male and female competitors in 4-way VFS, while FAI/IPC separates the genders in 4-way Open, and a total of 14 nations were listed in the world rankings. France is far ahead of all other nations in 4-way VFS after winning all FAI/IPC gold medals ever since the event was added to the World Championship of Formation Skydiving... (more)

Did you know that former Rhythm member Rob Radez coached iFLY SF Bay's ICL team to 122 points for February?
posted: Feb 7th, 2016 Once again, the first Indoor Cloud League scores and videos have been posted earlier than usual. Hurricane Factory and iFLY Virginia Beach had opened the January leaderboard in the middle of the month. This time, Lori Connor's ICL team at iFLY SF Bay is the first one with scores and videos for the February sequences. iFLY SF Bay had finished in 3rd place of the Indoor Cloud League 2015 season, behind Hurricane Factory and iFLY Orlando. The Northern California team then outscored Florida's ICL team in January 2016, while iFLY Dallas and iFLY Seattle finished in 2nd and 3rd places last month. The... (more)

Did you know that team work is also important for the Indoor Cloud League performance?
posted: Feb 5th, 2016 The record-breaking January leaderboard of the Indoor Cloud League is complete, and NSL-TV follows up with the BEST OF JANUARY videos. It becomes increasingly difficult for any ICL team to claim the highscore for a sequence with the rising number of participating wind tunnels. However, iFLY Dallas demonstrated in January that the team work of the whole ICL group with all lineups counts just as much as each member of a 4-way team. iFLY Dallas finished in 2nd place without claiming a single highscore. Only four of the nine ICL teams have at least one of the six highscores for the six sequences.... (more)

Did you know that the U.S.A. is in 6th place of the 8-way world rankings?
posted: Feb 4th, 2016 The top position of the 2015 world rankings in 8-way are the easiest one to define, as there cannot be a serious question mark behind the dominating position of the Golden Knights. The U.S. Army team is the reigning 8-way world champion of 2012 and 2014 and posted a new world record for a single round last year. The Golden Knights are also the only 8-way team in the world at the moment with meet averages well above the 20-average benchmark. This does not mean that the U.S. delegation has the 8-way gold medals at the Mondial 2016 in the bag, as Russia and France will do everything it takes... (more)
