Golden Knight Female 4-Way Team (GKF4) wins Gold in Bedford, England at the 2015 World Challenge Indoor Skydiving Championships in the Female Open Class.

While Bedford Bodyflight celebrated their 10th year of competition, this was only the second time the Golden Knights have made the trip to the England wind tunnel to compete.

The 2015 World Challenge was run slightly different than in years past with all competitors saying it was ran very smoothly and that they were very impressed with the meet. Owner and meet director, Paul Mayer, had taken notes from competitors and tried to accommodate as much as possible. Teams only had to be at the tunnel for minimal amount of time thanks to the scheduling of each different category. With 90 registered 4-way teams, this kept from overcrowding the tunnel and worked very well allowing each team the needed room to prepare for each round.

Day one of the competition started out with AAA 4-way formation skydiving and all teams ran through round 1 without any hiccups and continued through round 5.

The Golden Knights finished the day with 127 points, 16 points ahead of the second place UK team. After looking at the score cards from the judges, team coach, Solly Williams, had questions on round 2. The Knights were deducted 4 points with 2 points being deducted for a center point violation and after the team reviewed the video, they filed a formal protest to the Chief Judge. Round 2 went back in front of a judging panel and was re-scored, this time with only 2 deductions and a final round score of 21. The Knights won their protest and after the scores where corrected, ended the day with 129 points, increasing their lead by 18.

Day two proved to be even better for the Golden Knights. The last 5 rounds where a bit more technical but they were able to execute each round very well and produce high scores for each. The Knights dominated the female class throughout the entire meet and did not lose a single round and while this was their main goal, they looked at the open class leader board and set their sights on beating a few different teams and we are happy with the results.

GKF4 took the Gold in AAA Female 4-way Formation Skydiving class and placed 5th on the Open Class leader board with a new team high average of 26.3.
