Please can we ask for patience (a good judging virtue) from all judges and would-be judges who have tried to access the On Line Judges Training Courses. These are still under construction and those that are completed need to be updated with the regulation changes.
The Judges committee and the Judge Training Co-ordinator, Karla Cole are working hard to bring the system up to date, and to have it available as soon as possible.
Meanwhile if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either Pia Beggren (Committee Chair) or Karla Cole via the FAI.

There are few surprises as those Nations that have dominated in different disciplines continue to do so, however in one or two cases the failure to enter every possible First Category Event has had an impact.
Freefall Style and Precision Accuracy:
In the Male event the first position is spread between countries, for Accuracy : Slovenia, Style : the Czech Republic and Overall : Russia. Russia however wipes the board in the Female events taking first position in Accuracy, Style and Overall.
The dominance of Belgium (first place) continues in the 4-Way Open event; however despite France’s dominance of the 4-way Female event, first position goes to USA because they competed in all 5 of the FCE’s in the 4 years that count. France continued their dominance of the 8-way and VFS events, but UAE are now in second place in VFS which could make 2014 interesting.
Great Britain take first place in Freestyle despite France’s dominance, due to consistence of entry but France retains their first position in Freefly.
Continues with the dominance of the USA taking first place in all 4 elements of this discipline.
