The start of the 3rd Asian Beach Games is only a few days away and competitors and officials alike are making their way to Haiyang (CHN) for a week of intense competition.
For the first time, Paramotoring is part of the Games which are organised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). Since the FAI is recognised as the International Sport Federation for air sports, the FAI is acting as technical adviser to the Games and providing the rules of the competition along with the International Jury.
FAI Microlight and Paramotor Commission President Mr. Richard MEREDITH-HARDY has been working closely with the Haiyang Asian Beach Games Organising Committee (HABGOC) since it was announced that Paramotoring was to be included in the programme. Richard will travel to Haiyang several days before the Opening Ceremony to ensure that preparations are complete and everything is set for a successful competition. Part of these preparations have included collaboration with the Swiss company SWISS TIMING, responsible for the timing and scoring equipment for the Paramotoring event. This offers an excellent learning opportunity for the FAI since Swiss Timing will provide live scoring for the first time at a Paramotor competition.
The list of competitors has been published and is now available.
Competitors will be battling for gold, silver and bronze medals in the following categories:
