Eliana's whole story

How much faster can it go? She joined her first team in 1998 beginning from the scratch. Three years later, she is winning the gold medal at the World Championships of Formation Skydiving with a total of little over 900 skydives. Eliana Rodriguez is moving on the fast lane. The gold medal in Spain in the female 4-way event is not really the most impressive evidence for her talent since the top teams of the world are scoring on a significantly higher level. However, lifting up the performance level from the scratch to almost a 15-point average in the Open Class within little over three years is very impressive. The rising star, recently featured at the NSL Profiles page, is still out for more. Her comments are clearly indicating that she is already addicted to the 4-way drug. "Iíd like to get to the level of Dawn English or Lise Aune whether competing with women or men," Rodriguez said in the interview with Linda Florea. Her three female teammates with the U.S. team in Spain, Synchronicity, have been a great spring board to Rodriguez' current position. Her previous team, Tunnel Rage, won the U.S. Nationals in 2000. But they had to deal only with the less challenging limited dive pool. The next step to the whole dive pool was a serious challenge.

Rodriguez was lucky to have three experienced competitors around who were already familiar with the whole dive pool and general 4-way business. Learning was much easier that way. Professional coaching with Joey Jones did the rest to develop her talent to become a top-notch competitor. Her last competition at the World Championship in Spain will probably be the one Rodriguez will never forget. Synchronicity had to go through everything it takes to win a meet. A nervous start with two penalties put the team behind, while the top contenders were skydiving strongly. Rodriguez and her team made it through the weak part of the meet and gained strength. Round seven was probably the turning point of the competition. For the first time, Synchronicity posted the sole highscore for a round. And this after lurking at the gold and silver medal positions from behind until then. From here on, the U.S. team kept scoring the highest results at each remaining round.

News from the NSL Shop

The National Skydiving League is very excited to announce that we will soon have exclusive NSL signature gloves in the NSL Shop. With Neumann receiverís gloves already being the favorite glove of many skydivers, we decided that Neumann would be the ideal choice to offer in our shop. After discussion with the company, they agreed to produce a line of the receiverís glove with the NSL logo embroidered on the back of the hand. The NSL approved the prototype this week and the gloves may be available as soon as the September Playoffs. The gloves have a cloth back and patented Neumann tackified palm for sensitivity and a sure grip. The Velcro closure at the wrist will keep the gloves snug in free fall. The NSL has ordered a limited quantity of the gloves in sizes S, M, L, and XL. Because of the limited quantity of gloves, we are accepting advance orders. The exclusive NSL gloves are available for only $25 per pair, which includes shipping. As a special offer to NSL teams, we will take 10 percent off the total price when 4 or 5 pairs are ordered together.
 
The new NSL tee shirts are on their way to the headquarters and should be available next week. Adam Buckner, an artist for Go Fast! designed the new artwork that features the skydivers in a Black Hole formation. The front of the shirts sports the traditional NSL logo on the left side. NSL supporters, The Relative Workshop and Performance Designs, logos are included on the sleeves of the shirts. As a special offer to NSL skydivers, the shirts will be sold for $10 each. The price to the public or by ordering online will be $12.50, $2 less than the old style shirt. For a savings in shipping costs, get together with your team and friends and order as a group. We will split the cost of shipping according to how many shirts are shipped at once.
 
Also available, but not online yet are NSL golf shirts. The shirts are high-quality, 100 % combed cotton and available in all three NSL colors - red, white and royal blue. The NSL logo is embroidered on the left front. The shirts have quarter length sleeves and a two-button placket. The golf shirts are available in small, medium and large for $23.00.
 
We also have a Lee ultra weight sweatshirt to keep you toasty warm on cool nights. It is 95% cotton, 5 % polyester and has a generous cut. The sweatshirt is available in red, navy and white with the NSL logo embroidered on the left side. The sweatshirt can be ordered in sizes medium, large and extra large for $23.00. If denim is more your style, we have that too. The always-in-style classic denim shirt is like an old friend, comfortable. The shirt has long sleeves and is 100 % cotton with a button down collar. It can be ordered in small, medium, large and extra large with the NSL logo is embroidered above the left hand pocket for only $31.00.
 
One of Kurtís favorite items in the shop is the fleece-lined jacket. It is available in either red or royal blue and features a full front zipper, ash heather fleece body and sleeve lining with inside zip pocket. There are two side-zip pockets, elastic cuffs and waistbands. It can be ordered in small, medium, large and extra large for $55.00. Other new items in the shop include NSL license plates for $10 and NSL patches for $6. Call Linda for orders at (904)740-9093.
