Did You Know...... that two new French national 4way champions also compete in Banja Luka?
In good spirits: French national 8way team Aerodyne Maubeuge
The 8way team is the safest bet for French gold since Russia's 8way team Barkli is still working on the lineup, while France has the same one in Banja Luka as at the Mondial Dubai 2012. It is actually the last competition for this very strong French 8way lineup. Team captain Clement Martin Saint Leon said that the training jumps went very well, and the team is in great spirits.
Aerodyne Maubeuge had finished with a 22.5 average in Dubai, which wiped out the 22.2 average of the Golden Knights in 1997. However, the US Army lineup of 2012 scored even higher (22.9) and still owns the highest 8way meet average in history. The last meet for this French lineup could once again become a race for the highest meet average and the world record for a single round.

Clement Martin Saint Leon explained that members of the national teams cannot win the Coupe de France events. However, they may compete and win medals at the national championships. The international meets usually interfere with the schedule of the national teams and they have to stay away, as it was the case again this year, with the two exceptions.
