Nationals Comes to a Close

Nationals Comes to a Close
Monday, October 2, 2017

Two weeks of non-stop action completed Saturday night at Skydive Perris in California, as the 2017 USPA National Skydiving Championships came to a close. More than 500 competitors from across the U.S. and abroad filled the skies over Southern California each day, vying for the title of national champion in multiple events—wingsuit flying, artistic freeflying and freestyle, formation skydiving, vertical and mixed formation skydiving, and speed skydiving. Skydive Perris proved to be a superb host, holding Nationals for the first time since 2005.
The final events—16-way and 10-way formation skydiving—were a fun finish to the excitement, with GKXP winning gold in 16-way and Arizona Airspeed taking the top spot in 10-way. Competitors, judges, staff and friends celebrated at the final awards ceremony and banquet poolside Saturday night.
Full scores are available on OmniSkore.com, and Skydive-TV’s daily broadcasts of all the action appear at skydive-tv.com. Look for a complete report in the December issue of Parachutist.
