WingsuitCompetition.com - competition day 1 and 2


11 Sept 2009, 17:25 - Terni Italy
by Jarno Cordia

Friday started early, with everyone showing up at 9:00 in the morning for the first stretching (yes! people where actually observed doing things that make this look like sport). The first load went up at 9:15, with jumpers ready to go head to head for round one, two and so on.
The French showed some amazing flying from the first jump. Smooth controlled flying, barely visable inputs, and smooth docks.
The TonySuits factory team is also doing well. Activly flying for the docks, but making them just a tad slower than the French and Dutch teams.

Most of the Italian teams start their competition jumps on saterday. So their scores will be appearing on http://wingsuitcompetition.com/scores/ within the next few hours.
Several teams have already finished the competition, and its just waiting for Chief judge James Boole to upload the final figures.

So far the flying has been more than impressive on all teams, and the event video will definately be worth watching. Especialy the 5th (free) round has many people exited, and experimenting heavily with funky flying moves.

More news soon!
