Did you know that AtomiX YUU-Skydive and FSC Remscheid battled throught ten rounds this time? posted: Sep 6th, 2015 The Sun Path Products NSL News has hardly covered much of the AAA Class 4-way competition at the German Nationals so far. Airbus Illertissen once again walked away with the gold medals, as the defending champions did last year.
The best battles for German 4-way and 8-way medals took place in the AA Class categories, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported earlier. However, this does not mean that the AAA Class competition did not have its own exciting competition.
The gold medals were not contended for, while the situation behind Airbus Illertissen offered everything that teams and audience... (more)
Did you know that the national 8-way teams are eying each other carefully? posted: Sep 5th, 2015 The 4-way competition was completed after ten rounds in Germany, and the 8-way teams have been in action for a few hours after the last round in 4-way on Thursday, and for the whole Friday.
There is no serious competition for the best German 8-way team, Airbus Munchen, the defending champion with a new lineup this year. The Airbus 8-way lineup now consists of the complete Airbus Illertissen and FSC Remscheid 4-way teams.
Team Sudwest has been training for several years, also with changing lineups, and tries once again to get within striking distance of the dominating German 4-way and 8-way... (more)
Did you know that the AA Class competition had the tightest field at the German Nationals? posted: Sep 4th, 2015 The grande finale in the 4-way AAA Class competition of the German Nationals 2015 was a drama that the Sun Path Products NSL News will cover later on.
However, the battle for the silver medals between FSC Remscheid and AtomiX YUU-Skydive was still not even the most exciting part of the 4-way event. The eight teams in the AA Class created a very unusual and extraordinary leaderboard. All AA Class teams were very competitive and close to each other, so close that only one of the eight teams finished without a highscore for a round. Round 8 was the highlight of this special field of teams, when... (more)
Did you know that iFLY Seattle added a new Rookie Class project to the Indoor Cloud League activities? posted: Sep 4th, 2015 The German Nationals 2015 have naturally received the main attention for a few days, before it will turn to the FAI World Cup 2015 on the upcoming weekend.
However, other updates have been posted in the meantime, and the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard for the month of August is almost complete.
Deb Correia reported from the Northwest that iFLY Seattle held two events this month: "The first was a 2:2 skills camp focused on bringing in some newer fliers for the Rookie Class categories. We had eight participants and eight coaches. Each person got two sessions of 1:1 coaching to start, and then... (more)
Did you know that NeVa FSZ Saar's 8-year recipe is great team dynamics? posted: Sep 3rd, 2015 Today's live update from the German Nationals 2015 features one of the teams that did not finish in the medal rankings. In fact, Neva FSZ Saar, one of the several home teams in Saarlouis, finished in the most undesirable position - right behind the medal winners.
It did not bother the NeVa members at all though, as they did not expect to be in the medal positions. A 5th place was the team's best finish at national championships so far, which happened at last year's event, after two 6th places in 2012 and 2013.
This year's 4th place is the best result and also came together with the best meet... (more)
Did you know that It is a technically challenging competition draw in Germany? posted: Sep 2nd, 2015 Solly Williams and Luc Verstrepen wrapped up the second meet day at the German Nationals 2015 with a summary of the 4-way action and a new COACHES CORNER video clip.
National team Airbus Illertissen picked up the pace at the faster sequences after Round 3, while FSC Remscheid's 4-way veterans were hoping to begin catching up with AtomiX, a young 4-way team of a newer generation in Germany.
It did not happen, and AtomiX eventually extended the lead in the battle for the silver medals to six points. Both teams completed approx. 200 training jumps this year, AtomiX with coach Luc Verstrepen... (more)
