The farewell meet for the French 8way team remains very interesting, even though there is no serious direct competition for Aerodyne Maubeuge. Fast sequences took turns with slower ones today, and France is still in contention for the highest 8way meet average in history. Team captain Clement Martin Saint Leon said that his team is missing pressure to perform even better.
The world's top position in VFS 4way seems to be taken by Dubai Nexus, at least at this point in time. The VFS 4way teams were released after completing three rounds. They have more time since they complete only eight rounds due to the smaller dive pool.
