It was with sadness that I heard yesterday of Tim Mace’s death. Tim had been suffering from cancer, and was a registered competitor last month in the Speed Skydiving World Cup at Prostejov. It was clear at that time that Tim was not well, and his illness forced him to withdraw.

The last day of the competition with quite a few rounds left to complete, but the rain originally forecast for the early part of the day hasn't materialised, but it may mean a few cloud-dodging loads.
The 1st World Cup in Speed Skydiving has now completed and in doing so has produced three new World Records (see below). All three records will need to be ratified by their NACs and the FAI - but congratulations to them all and indeed, the first ever medal winners:-
Silver Medallist: Thomas Moritz Friess - GER
Bronze Medallist: Stephanie Hipp - GER
