Indoor Skydiving Australia Group is currently preparing for the Australian Open Indoor Skydiving Championships to be held at iFLY Indoor Skydiving Penrith on 23 and 24 August.
Indoor Skydiving Australia Group (ISAG), Australia’s largest indoor skydiving group is currently preparing for the Australian Open Indoor Skydiving Championships to be held at iFLY Indoor Skydiving Penrith on 23rd and 24th August. iFLY Indoor Skydiving Penrith is recognized not only as Australia’s largest indoor skydiving facility, but also the biggest in the southern hemisphere.
This year marks the 5th anniversary of the 2019 Australian Open Indoor Skydiving Championships with the event expecting over 300 of the world’s best in the sport to compete.
National Marketing Manager for ISAG Cheryl Dawson notes, “This year we are celebrating our 5 year anniversary hosting this huge championship event for Australia. The popularity not only within the skydiving community but also with spectators is increasing every year!”
“The Australian Open Indoor Skydiving Championships have seen around 600 competitors over the last 5 years and been witnessed live and on social media by well over 1 million people globally.
“Popularity for these Championships has grown so fast not only here in Australia but worldwide. We have people from Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand and Czech Republic traveling to Sydney to compete against our Australian flyers! We have some amazing local talent that will be hard to beat.”
One such talent is 13-year-old Amy Watson who earlier this year became the youngest ever Indoor Skydiving World Champion taking gold for Australia in the Junior Freestyle competition at the 3rd FAI Indoor Skydiving World Championships in France.
Australia is rapidly becoming a leader in producing some of the world’s greatest in the sport of indoor skydiving. It is one of the most accessible and all-inclusive sports and we are incredibly proud of the talent that our facilities across Australia have been producing,” Dawson advises
All the Australian competitors who win a medal in the 2019 championships will qualify to participate in the 4th FAI Indoor Skydiving World Cup in Charleroi (Belgium) in April 2020.
The public will be invited to attend free of charge, and iFLY Indoor Skydive will also broadcast a live Facebook Feed expected to be viewed by almost 1 million viewers.
