The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 20 February 2014 that the German national team Paratec-Saar has signed up for the team's first indoor competition at the World Challenge 2014. The great news brings back an old topic and an additional aspect to the event.
|| Reigning amateur outdoor champion: Thunder
Thunder's Belgian/Dutch lineup and SportLoto from Russia have been in an internal race for the unofficial title of the best amateur team in the world in the past years. This duel included indoor and outdoor meets where both teams competed at the same time and at the same place.
Two other teams have been mentioned with the same topic over the recent years. US team DNR posted a 20.7 average at the USPA Nationals 2012 when Thunder and SportLoto finished with 21.8 - 21.2 at the World Cup 2012. Paratec-Saar has scored above 20-average several times, and the new lineup with Petra van Overveld won with a 20.2 average in Germany last year.
