The profile of all athletes participating to the Paragliding Accuracy and Parachuting Canopy Piloting events of the World Games 2013 is now available on the FAI website.
The profiles, created in collaboration with the athletes, provide solid information to the media, the air sports community and the sport fans. They include key information such as ranking, best achievement and experience, but also more personal insight into their hopes, goals and what their sport means to them.
“The World Games offer huge media exposure worldwide. Let us seize this chance to showcase not only our sports, but also our athletes!,” Senior Sports Manager Rob Hughes said. “These profiles are meant for the public from all around the world to get to know them and for the media to provide them with the material they need to produce content.”
The World Games are organised and governed by the International World Games Association (IWGA), under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The 2013 edition will take place in Cali, Colombia, over a period of 11 days from July 25 to August 4 2013. 32 official sports feature in the programme, including Parachuting Canopy Piloting and Paragliding Accuracy, while AeroMusicals (Aeromodelling) is present as a demonstration sport. The Parachuting and Paragliding competitions will run concurrently on the same site, for maximum spectator interest, from 1 to 4 August 2013. 36 athletes for each air sport gained entry to the Games.
