The new Italian 4-way champion also has a new lineup. Only three members of the Italian national team at the Mondial Dubai 2012 won this year's Italian Nationals and will compete at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014: Placido Udine, Fabio Lorenzetti and team videographer Massimo Fiorini. Antonella Chiarin and Marco Arrigo have joined Ex3mo's new 4-way lineup, while Italy's 8-way team is not registered for the competition in Prostejov.
Antonella Chiarin competed with the Italian team Amuroray at the World Challenge 2014, and Marco Arrigo is one of the original Sinapsi members, who competed for Italy on the world's top level until 2010. He left Sinapsi after the 4th place at the World Meet 2004 in Croatia and later won an 8-way bronze medal for Italy with Ex3mo in 2008.

Then there is Rotor Out from Australia who posted a 17.1 average in April this year. Rotor Out had a lot of time to increase the scoring level.
Austria's old and new 4-way champion Final Fire posted an 18.8 average last week, which would be very competitive for the 6th place in Prostejov. However, a different lineup will compete at the world meet, and the scoring level will also be different. It will be a good battle for the 10th and the 6th place.
