What do you hope to achieve at The World Games?

How do you describe yourself ?

Clearly there is a competitive streak in me as I love the feeling of competition and being judged by my peers. With canopy piloting competition being a black and white event you can compete against yourself and improve upon your last performances.

What does air sport mean to you?

Canopy Piloting has the added benefit of happening over water in front of crowds offering excellent spectator appeal. I look forward to competing against the worlds best at a world class event.

What plans do you have for after The World Games?

I will continue to compete annually at a national level (South African national championships) and every 2 years at the World Championships.

Any final comments?

From a small pool of Skydivers, South Africa can comfortably fly alongside the world best and showcase the country's talent.
