LUXFLY, an indoor skydiving facility located just across the border in Belgium, has announced the champions of its recent competition.

The LUXFLY Open Benelux Skydiving Championships took place on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March 2024, with teams and individual competitors from all over Europe converging in the Belgian province of Luxembourg for a showcase of talent and skill.

In the 2-Way Dynamic Flying category, the duo of Sophie Wegman and Anne Grandjean clinched the title of Luxembourgish Champions. 

According to LUXFLY, their "exceptional" performance and coordination in the air have set a new benchmark for dynamic flying. The organisers added that they "couldn't be prouder to have such talent representing Luxembourg".

For the Formation Skydiving Formation, the title of champions went to The Lobster team, comprising the quartet of Denize Marie Puccy, Joanne Kayser, Manasi and Flabien. "Their impeccable formations and synchronicity in the sky were a sight to behold, earning them the top spot in this highly competitive category," commented LUXFLY.

The youngest competitor, Jean Emringer, reportedly demonstrated "extraordinary talent and determination" by winning in the Solo Speed category. 

In the Kids Challenge, Louis Godiuno emerged victorious, "displaying great potential and enthusiasm" for the sport.

Commenting on the international nature of this competition, LUXFLY concluded: "We are immensely proud to host such a diverse and talented group of athletes and are committed to making future championships even bigger and better."

One of the objectives of LUXFLY is to make the sport better known by providing quality facilities for training and access to international coaches.
