Odette Balési-Rousseau : a parachuting pioneer passes away

odette-balesi-rousseau 2It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mrs. Balési-Rousseau on 7 December 2012.

Very few are those who had such an eventful and fascinating life as Odette Balési-Rousseau. Her strong character, tenacious will and infallible courage that all of the aviation community vividly remembers made of her one of the most remarkable pioneering women in parachuting.

This was formally presented to him by Graeme Windsor, IPC President,  at the final medal ceremony of the Mondial.
