GK 4way earns Bronze, despite limited training

With the Golden Knights 8way Team focusing solely on the 8way event for the 2010 season, there were no high expectations for the 4way event at the US Nationals competition.  However, relying on previous training experience, the Golden Knights Gold 4way team placed 3rd after 10 rounds of competition at Skydive Chicago.   A very impressive accomplishment considering that most top teams make hundreds of training jumps in preparation for the US Nationals.  The Gold 4way team (SFC Brian Krause, SFC Matt Davidson, SFC Kurt Isenbarger, SSG Sean Sweeney, and SFC Larry Miller-video) finished the meet with 22o total points after 10 rounds.

The 8way competition will kick off first thing in the morning, and expectations are high.  Follow the action at  http://www.skydivechicago.com/Events/2010USPANationals/Scores/tabid/250/Default.aspx
