Did you know that Paratec-Saar from Germany has two world meet rookies in the lineup?
posted: Aug 29th, 2014 The competition at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 is still offering exciting battles, even though NMP-PCH Hayabusa will not give away their first 4-way gold medals for Belgium and most of the other medal positions have been secured at this point in time. Canada's Lemay family team with Katie Woods left Hayabusa and Arizona Airspeed in the dust in Round 8 with a perfect performance, including the special and so far unique Canadian Block 15 (Cat - Cat) technique. Hayabusa was even happy enough... (more)

Did you know that the first-timers at a world meet have a good time?
posted: Aug 29th, 2014 The protest dust has settled after a few other teams also tried to get re-jumps due to higher air speed than required on jump run. The jury has not agreed with any arguments for any re-jumps, and the scores on the leaderboard are standing strongly. The Sun Path Products NSL News has now been zooming in on teams and competitors who compete for the first at a World Championship of Formation Skydiving. There is time for that, as the situation at the relevant spots on the leaderboards seem to be settled. NMP-PCH Hayabusa is strongly headed at the first gold medals for Belgium, and Mark Kirkby...

Did you know that NMP-PCH Hayabusa summarized the first day after Round 3?
posted: Aug 28th, 2014 The 4-way competition in the traditional events (Open/Women) is over for Thursday at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014, and the VFS 4-way and 8-way teams get their turn for the rest of the day. NMP-PCH Hayabusa is three points ahead after three rounds and has not shown any weaknesses yet, while Evolution is challenging Arizona Airspeed. The Belgian team took a few minutes after today's end of the 4-way competition to discuss the current situation with the Sun Path Products NSL News. It's a special... (more)

Did you know that Meet Director Bryan Burke now has a competitive agenda in Prostejov?
posted: Aug 27th, 2014 Wednesday was an interesting day at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014. The weather situation was matching the forecast, and there was no chance to get the jump planes in thr air until early afternoon. Then the weather changed, as is was expected, as well, and the front finally went through. The skies cleared, and there was nothing in the way of more competition - except of one obstacle: the wet grass runway. The teams and competitors were surprised when a public announcement terminated the competition... (more)

Did you know that Shannon Pilcher and Solly Williams had the first turn at Coaches Corner?
posted: Aug 27th, 2014 The three top teams in 4-way Open at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 had a good reason to be happy with their performances after Round 1. It seems like they have already secured their medal positions and just don't know which one yet. The only surprise might be the distance between NMP-PCH Hayabusa, Arizona Airspeed and Evolution to the other teams after only one round. Volt'R suffered two point deductions, however, even a 26-pointer would be too far away from a medal position. Russia's new Barkli... (more)

Did you know that the completion of Round 1 in two 4-way events was a little miracle in Prostejov?
posted: Aug 26th, 2014 It was a little miracle that Round 1 of the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 was completed in Prostejov. Sun Path Products representative Chris Talbert, former 4-way and 8-way world class competitor with the Golden Knights, explains at the beginning of the new NSL Reality TV video clip what a surprise it was to see teams boarding the jump planes when he and Brian "BK" Krause, still reigning 8-way world champion, arrived at the drop zone. Actually, Round 1 was only completed in 4-way Open and 4-way... (more)
