Did You Know...

... that the World Challenge 2014 features the best 4way Women field ever?

   
    First official 4way Women world champions in 2001: Synchronicity
posted Mar 30th, 2014 - The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 28 March 2014 that the World Challenge 2014 has new record participation with a total of over 100 teams in all events. The story came along with the leaderboards in the four different 4way categories.

The new highscore of 86 teams in 4way includes the record number of A Class teams, and there is a second event that has more teams registered than ever before. Eleven teams have signed up for the competition in 4way Women.

The all-female lineups were a part of the AAA/Open Class leaderboard until 2011, even though the separate category was officially introduced by the International Parachuting Commission (IPC) at the World Meet 2001, and the first World Challenge was hosted by Bodyflight Bedford in 2006.

First winner of the World Challenge 2012 in 4way Women: Just4Fun    
Host Paul Mayer first adopted the other categories step by step after launching the event only with the AAA/Open Class in 2006. The introduction of the separate leaderboard for 4way Women was the last step and happened at the World Challenge 2012.

Eight teams competed in 4way Women at the first occasion, and it has been a world class competition ever since. The Deep Blue Defenders from France won the gold medals at the Mondial Dubai 2012 after a fierce battle with UK's former world champions in Just 4 Fun for the world's indoor championship title in April.

Germany's young ISB Air Remscheid lineup had made it an exciting 3-team battle for the top position at the World Challenge 2012.

    Winner of the World Challenge 2013: Aerokart Deep Blue
Nine teams competed in 4way Women at the World Challenge 2013, and the French 2010 world champions in this category, Deep Blue with the original lineup, scored even higher (23.6 - 23.4) at their reunion than the 2012 winner.

The World Challenge 2014 does not only have a new record number of teams in 4way Women. It also features the most competitive field that the indoor competition at Bodyflight Bedford has seen so far. The 11 teams are coming from eight different countries, and the standing highscore average of 23.6 will be history after this year's competition.

It is the first time that the US national team in 4way Women competes at the World Challenge, and the visit of the Golden Knights guarantees another great battle on the top of this leaderboard. Perris Wicked was the only other US team in 4way Women in Bedford so far in 2012 and finished with a 21.2 average in 4th place.

First time at the World Challenge: Golden Knights in 4way Women    
It will be the third direct confrontation between Aerodyne French Girls and Golden Knights this year, after the Paraclete XP Indoor and Outdoor Championship 2014, and the indoor competition between the two teams was much closer than it was at the outdoor meet.

The Golden Knights did not have the event on the team's competition schedule when they planned for the 2014 season. It was added later and makes the competition in Bedford even more exciting and more telling. Both top contenders from France and the USA will have the opportunity to meet the best UK teams, who are always ready to charge for a spot in the medal positions.

The 4-team UK delegation in 4way Women includes the current national team Kaizen and the previous national team Bodyflight Isis. Skydiva, with multiple 4way world champion Claire "Sparky" Scott, has two former Isis members in the lineup (Sian Stokes, Luci Boella) and could also be good for a surprise.
