11th Day of the Mondial, 8th December 2012

Saturday 8th December, Day 10 of competition.

13.30 The Mondial formally closes, with the final speach from Graeme Windsor, IPC President, and the lowering of the FAI Flag.  This was preceeded by the final medal ceremony for the Freefall Style and Accuracy Landing winners, and presentations to all the people who had worked so hard,  behind the sceans to make this Mondial the success it was.

An event to go down in the history of the FAI and IPC.  The largest and most spectacular and successful air sports event ever.

The statistics from the competition are fascinating - a total of 11,408 jumps were made during the Mondial.  We have had 170,00 hits on our website to date! and still rising.

9.30   The two final jumps of this fantastic Mondial took place in the accuracy arena.  Taisia Krivosjcjelpva, Russia jumped first and scored 0.02 mt. and then Sai Wang, China jumped and had 0.04 mt.  So the Gold Medal position in the Junior Accuracy. Female event was decided.  Congratulations to both girls - to have to wait overnight before making such an important jump and with so few spectators to cheer them on must have added to the nervous tension of going for gold.

Now there is time for planning of fun loads, the Canopy Piloting to look forward to, and the closing ceremony and final prize giving later today.

This morning we have the very last of the competition  jumps as the accuracy competition jump offs are made for the junior female gold medal.

We shall then have the spectacular event of Canopy Piloting Freestyle.  This is an event the Canopy Piloting community would like to see included in the competition calendar, and it certainly is crowd pleasing.

There are also plans for some big way formation building, so we look forward to an enjoyable day at Skydive Dubai, before the closing ceremony and concert this evening.

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.

With so many events ending yesterday it has been difficult to keep up with the Congratulations:

End of the Mondial, 9th December 2012

Sunday, 9th December - It's all over

Following the final prize-giving and closure of the Competitions, there was a magnificant flying display both by an aerobatic display team and Zoltan in his magic machine.

The final closing ceremony and party/concert last night was stupendous, spectacular: superlatives are not enough to describe a fitting closure for an amazing World Championships. 

Held at the Maydan racecourse (look it up on Google!), we were greated by free drinks and finger food and then moved into the arena.  On the huge stage set up we were entertained with video footage put together from the Mondial and the 3rd Gulf Cup.  The Champions from the competition then paraded onto the stage;  the arena was filled with jumpers and fans of Usher and Katie Perry, whoes concert was to follow.  The master of ceremonies then announced that a special guest was to be presented with an award from their hignesses who had hosted the Mondial - and Felix Baumgartner came onto the stage to receive his award and congratulate all the medal winners. 

When asked "what next" he responded that his life had been very hectic since his jump from space, but he had achieved his two childhood objectives, to jump from space and to fly helicopters - so maybe now he would do something for others and planned to fly rescue helicopters.

There was then a brilliant firework display above the arena.   We were then entertained, loudly but excellently by Usher and Katie Perry - the atmosphere was electric and it was a fitting closure to a memorable Mondial.

Thank you Dubai.

If you are looking for the medal tables and prize-giving pictures they can be found under Mondial Mutterings, and the pictures will be added over the next few days.  All the videos judged at this competition for Formation Skydiving, Canopy Formations and Artistic Events will be available on our YouTube site during the coming days - and a compilation tape for Judge Training is being prepared by Tamara Koyn - when ready they will be announced on this site.

My thanks for their help in making this reporting possible go to Fay Kimble,for her unfailing support, Claire King & Dirk Venter of InTime Scoring Systems for the Formation Skydiving, Canopy Formations and Artistics Events dynamic results and videos and Gwrt Weckbecker for the Freefall Style and Accuracy Landings results  and to all those many people on the organising committee who provided us with information on delegations, daily timings and all the background material.
