Following two full weeks of action, the 2018 USPA National Skydiving Championships came to a close on Tuesday, September 18, at Chicagoland Skydiving Center in Rochelle, Illinois. More than 600 competitors flocked to CSC from across the country and abroad over the course of the event. After bad weather the first few days limited the number of rounds for the artistic events and vertical formation skydiving, sunny skies prevailed, allowing all remaining events to complete on schedule.
USPA named national champions in artistic freeflying and freestyle; vertical and mixed formation skydiving; 4-, 8-, 10- and 16-way formation skydiving; speed skydiving; and performance and acrobatic wingsuit flying. Full results are available at OmniSkore.com.
This was the first time Chicagoland hosted a multi-event USPA National Championships. DZO Doug Smith and his team did an excellent job organizing their premier Nationals. Check out photos of all the action on USPA’s Facebook page.
