Day 1 of the World Cup of Indoor Skydiving

The 1st World Cup of Indoor Skydiving kicked off this morning at 9am with the first round of FS Open followed by FS Female and VFS.

This was preceded by the Opening Ceremony held last night during which Axel Zohmann, the Meet Director, welcomed all competitors highlighting that they were the pioneers by participating in the first ever Indoor event recognised by the FAI. Graeme Windsor, President of the IPC and Jury President also welcomed all the participants, introduced the FAI volunteer officials  and, after retracing briefly the efforts made to include an indoor activity into the IPC, he declared the competition open.

The FAI anthem was played and then the Chief Judge Ron Miasnikov, who is also Event Judge for AE, together with Claire King, Event Judge for FS, proceeded with the draws.

The competitors meeting was held at 15.00 hrs with Dr. 'Exi' Rainer Hoenle (Committee Chair, CP) explaining the changes to the rules proposed for the coming year.  These were generally well accepted and the questions raised by the competitors will be considered by the committee at the next IPC plenary meeting in Jan/Feb 2015.

Today, or rather this morning, saw the completion of 3 rounds of Zone Accuracy in down-wind conditions - so a few bruises and I guess the judges looked less relaxed than they do in the picture.  Fortunately amongst the INTERESTING landings no serious problems.  After lunch it is planned to do the third round of Dragged Distance and complete the competition.  So watch the TV and the results as they get posted (once agreed by the Chief Judge).

According to the "unofficial" results we have a new star in 1st place for Zone Accuracy, Keven Walters from Australia, but the results have to be carefully checked before we can announce any winners.

Thanks to Alberto Martin Paracuelios and his daily reports from Z'Hills, U.S.A.

3rd November - End to Training and Opening Ceremony

 

Training jumps continued through the day until time for the Opening Ceremony.  This consisted of speaches and a demonstration jump from a military team.  Unfortunately two of the team members suffered a canopy collision during the jump which looked much worse than it actually was, with one jumper suffering a broken leg and the other a broken shoulder.  We wish them a speedy recovery.
