10th Day of the Mondial, 7th December 2012

December 7th 2012

Day 10 of Competition

Results:    These are posted on our results site as soon as released by the Judge panels for uploading.  Depending on the Chief Judge this may take longer for some events than others.   Although the "live" results from the judging panels are available on the DZ - big screen, this is not linked to the uploading process.  

If you wish to see a change in this process so that the results can to be posted publically more quickly, please lobby your IPC Delegate to support this at the Annual IPC Meeting this January in Banja Luka, Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The latest Jury notices are published under this link

18.30 and the second prize giving ceremony of the Championships is over.  The Junior and Senior Style medal ceremony started the proceedings, followed by Canopy Formations and Formation Skydiving.  We will do full reports with photographs of all the ceremonies as individual pages.

Earlier in the afternoon another presentation was made of the Commonwealth Cup.  This was presented to the British Accuracy team by the IPC President Graeme Windsor.  This is a "fun" competition between the Brits, Ausies and Canadians and the cup is presented to the team that does best at a first category event.   A fun competition treated seriously by the contestants.

There was a record canopy formation built over Dubia this afternoon;  25 international canopy formation skydivers.  I have been promised a picture for the site for tomorrow.

Accuracy has almost completed and the results are on the results page:  Congratulations to the new World Champions, following a very exciting contest.  Tomorrow morning we have the jump off for the female accuracy 3rd place and then at 10.00 there will be a Canopy Piloting Freestyle competition.

13.00 and the Media Center was visited by Felix Baumgartner

A year ago he was here as a competitor, part of the Austrian team at the Dubai Gulf Cup, no crowd of TV cameras and paparazzi then, but probably one of the few people who has earnt celebrity status.  It was great he could find the time to visit in his busy schedule.

Meanwhile the accuracy continues in beautiful conditions and a perfect for the crowds of onlookers who have come to see skydiving.

*****************************************

Yesterday evening the weather defeated all attempts to complete the accuracy competition.  Style and Canopy Formations did complete as did 8-Way Formation Skydiving, and so a Prizegiving Ceremony was announced for  the early evening.  The stage was set and at around 6.30 the awards ceremony commenced. 

Medals and trophies were presented firstly to the Artistic Events winners, Freestyle and Freefly with the French National Anthem rinning around the Drop Zone for both.  This was followed by Canopy Piloting all events and the overall, this time it was the American National Anthem that dominated,

This was followed by prizes/trophies to the winners of the ParaSki Demonstration Event and Speed Skydiving, Demonstration, Test Competition.   Graeme Windsor, President of IPC then presented the FAI Gold Parachuting Medal to Tim Mace in recognition of his achievements.  At the end of the ceremony a Medal was presented to the Meet Director, Mr. Mohamed Yousef, in recognition of his contribution to Skydiving in Dubai.
