In the last week of July (24th-30th) fifteen of the world’s top paraglider acro pilots will challenge each other in a new competition concept in Organyà, Spain called ACRO GAME.
Fifteen pilots start out, and acro tricks are selected by lottery for them to perform. If a pilot fails a trick, he or she is given a letter, ‘A’, ‘C’, ‘R’ or ‘O’. If a pilot has received four letters (A C R O) the Game is over for him, so only three mistakes are allowed for a pilot to stay in until the next round.
When only eight pilots remain, the head-to-head battles commence. Pairs of pilots have to complete the same trick, and the one judged to have performed it the least well, gets a letter. We can’t wait for it !
