Russian skydiver Olga Bakulina is first to submit her entry into the Sky on Stage INDOOR Contest. She was able to record the 90-second video at the iFLY tunnel in Minsk, Belarus. Let's hope that her example inspires others to try to do the same during the 17 days remaining until the SoS INDOOR closes on 30 January 2021.
This is what Olga has to say about herself on Facebook:
Professional tunnel flyer, tunnel instructor and coach: freestyle, dynamic and freefly. World Cup medalist, National champion. Skydiver, 4000+ jumps.
The SoS organizers are trying to get in touch with Olga for an interview on her performance as well as her thoughts about the virtual contest format.
While a significant number of wind tunnels around the world are closed due to restrictions brought about by the spread of COVID-19, there are others operating normally - or at reduced schedules. All iFLY tunnels in Australia and New Zealand appear to be open for business. Freestyle enthusiasts downunder, take advantage of it and record your performance now! Or submit an existing one in the SoS THROWBACK Contest.
