Did you know that the Russian Nationals continued with two jump-off rounds and 16-way?
posted: Sep 30th, 2016 The 4-way and 8-way leaderboards at the Russian Nationals 2016 have been complete for two days, at least for most of the teams. XO Team and DOSAAF RO had to go into over-time after being tied in 3rd place at the end of the 10-round meet. The start of the 16-way competition was scheduled for Thursday morning, while 4-way was completed on Wednesday. However, the two teams in 3rd place had to get up a little bit earlier on Thursday to perform their jump-off round before the 16-way teams would get in the air. The first jump-off round did not break the tie after two 13-pointers, and the meet director... (more)

Did you know that DZ Grozniy had redemption this week for the Infra Red Band performance at the Mondial?
posted: Sep 29th, 2016 The new Sun Path Products NSL News update connects both most recent events once again directly with each other, the FAI Mondial 2016 and the Russian Nationals 2016. Russia was represented by four teams in the Formation Skydiving competition at the Mondial, and DZ Grozniy competed in 4-way Women. It is the 4th year for the same team with different lineups, who competed formerly under the Infra Red Band name. Team captain Evgenia Korjova said that her team under-performed at the Mondial, where they were aiming at a 15-average scoring level. DZ Grozniy now used the Russian Nationals to show... (more)

Did you know that Black Cat will defend the Russian double gold successfully?
posted: Sep 28th, 2016 It is past half time in the 4-way competition of the Russian Nationals 2016, and all ten rounds will most likely be completed on Wednesday. The beautiful fall weather in Siberia made it easy for the host to get the two traditional Formation Skydiving events done within four days, while keeping them separated from each other. The same three Black Cat members who competed in both events at the FAI Mondial 2016 (Valentin Ilin, Vasily Korotkov, Evgeny Stashchenko) will once again collect two gold medals for their double duties, as they did last year. This is still a special occasion, even for... (more)

Did you know that Russia bids to host the next World Championship of Formation Skydiving in 2018?
posted: Sep 27th, 2016 It's a long way from Skydive Chicago to Skydive Tanay, where the Russian Nationals are taking place this week. The Sun Path Products NSL News followed the travel route of the Russian teams from the FAI Mondial 2016 almost exactly, which eventually took two days and two nights to complete it. However, it was well worth the effort, as beautiful fall weather welcomed teams and visitors at the Tanay drop zone near Kemerovo in Siberia. The 8-way teams had eight rounds on their meet agenda and completed six of them on Monday. The remaining two rounds followed on Tuesday morning before the official... (more)

Did you know that Black Cat and Tanay will have a much more relaxed agenda at the Russian Nationals this week?
posted: Sep 26th, 2016 The next aftermath story of the FAI Mondial 2016 also connects to an upcoming event, the Russian Nationals 2016. The four Russian national teams who competed in the Formation Skydiving events at Skydive Chicago (Tanay - 8way, Black Cat - 4way Open, Infra Red Band - 4way Women, Flystation - 4way VFS) did not have much time to recover after the long trip to the U.S.A. The Russian Formation Skydiving delegation brought home one set of bronze medals, which was claimed by the 8-way lineup from Tanay with the highest average (19.0) in team history. The Mondial average also beat the world meet... (more)

Did you know that Laurence Herve was the highest scoring female 4-way competitor at the Mondial 2016?
posted: Sep 24th, 2016 The aftermath of the FAI Mondial 2016 continues with the extended AAA Class leaderboard that the Sun Path Products NSL News has been creating whenever different 4-way events apply the same competition draw. This time, the teams in 4-way Open and 4-way Women applied once again the same competition draw at the FAI Mondial 2016, which allows the audience to compare the scores directly. The two strongest teams in 4-way Women, Golden Knights and French Girls, finished in 5th (France) and 7th (U.S.A.) at the previous World Championship of Formation Skydiving in Prostejov 2014. The placements were... (more)
