Did you know that Savolo is Voodoo's 4way successor for South Africa?
posted: Apr 28th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 17 March 2014 that South Africa has to look for a new national 4way team, as Voodoo will not represent the country any longer after 15 years on the international 4way stage.
The selection is now in full swing in South Africa where five teams compete for the national 4way title and the trip to the world meet in the Czech Republic in August. There is not much opposition for Savolo (Bailey Edmunds, Jnr, Alex Jordaan, Amy Kirtland, Andre van Heerden) who are far ahead of the other four... (more)
Did you know that 4way competition on US Open Class top level has become a 3-team affair?
posted: Apr 27th, 2014 Earlier updates by the Sun Path Products NSL News after major events have usually included evaluations of the best US teams on the top of the leaderboard, where Arizona Airspeed has been holding the number one position since 2007.
There have been several attempts of other US teams to de-throne the Arizona Airspeed world champions of 2008 and 2012, which have all failed ever since. Team Fastrax discontinued their Airspeed challenge after the USPA Nationals 2007. The Golden Knights dropped their 4way pursuit and focused on 8way in 2009. Perris Fury was done after the USPA Nationals 2011, and Paraclete... (more)
Did you know that 8way pickup team Voltevobusa had a wealth of 8way experience available?
posted: Apr 25th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News is going back once again to the 8way competition at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2014.
It was necessary to correct a mistake that was recently brought up to the editor's attention. One of the 8way videos embedded in the story on 6 March 2014 did not really fit to the topic. The ten 8way rounds of the Golden Knights were supposed to be on the screen, while a US Army 4way lineup of many years ago was performing... (more)
Did you know that the female way teams did better than ever at the World Challenge 2014?
posted: Apr 24th, 2014 The AAA/Open Class leaderboard of the World Challenge 2014 was big enough and does not really need an extension. In fact, it was the biggest one in the history of the event.
However, it needs to be extended to accommodate the ten teams who competed in 4way Women with the same competition draw. It was also record participation in this category, which has now created the most gigantic record leaderboard including all teams who performed the same AAA Class competition draw.
There are many good reasons for showing... (more)
Did you know that Rotor Out competes once again for Australia this year?
posted: Apr 23rd, 2014 Australia's national 4way team of the past years, Rotor Out, was founded in 2009. None of the original members (Steph Bensley, Jens Goennemann, Gary Nemirovsky, Darren Pearson, with Darren Griggs on camera) are neither in the current lineup nor won the national championships last week.
Current team member Craig Vaughan's wife Steph and Gary Nemirovsky were the last original Rotor Out members who stepped down after last year's national championships. However, the Rotor Out team project has continued, and the 2014 lineup (Craig Vaughan - Center Inside, George Attard - Center Outside, Simon DiSciasio... (more)
Did you know that the Infra Red Band is back from Russia with love and big goals?
posted: Apr 22nd, 2014 Russia has been a consistent factor in 4way and 8way Formation Skydiving competition on the top level for many years. Sets of gold, silver and bronze medals have taken turns in making the trip to Russia from world meet after world meet.
The Russian history in 4way Women has not been as consistent as in the traditional 4way and 8way events. However, Russian female lineups have also won bronze medals two times since the new event was added to the World Championships of Formation Skydiving in 2001.
The Ladybirds placed 3rd for Russia in Croatia 2004 and Germany 2006. Larisa Sverdlenko was in... (more)
