Thursday 11 October 2018: Today will see the completion of the Championships with the last two rounds of FS across the events. Belgium's Hayabusa team is really under some pressure as they and USA go head-to-head in Round 9, equal on 230 points. Both teams have had jumps that they wished they'd performed better, but that is the nature of the game.

10.30 hrs:  FS 4-Way Round 9:  Belgium and USA have each scored 27 points . . . . !  Will we see a jump off???

As we wait for today's events to unfold,  take a moment to enjoy Skydive TV's video with both USA and Belgium's side-by-side videos of yesterday's Round 8 which brought the teams' scores to 230 each.

We thought the CF 4-Way Rotation event was complete after Round 8, but the  resulting scores put them in joint 1st position with 162 points, so now we need a jump off between Qatar and Russia.

11.35 hrs: The winds have put paid to continuing jumping for the time being, so both the 4-Way Rotation jump-off and the final Round 10 in FS are well and truly on hold.

The rains came, the winds remained and the clouds stayed low and threatening.

The highly charged day of anticpation has been weathered-out until tomorrow.
