Reunion Island’s top paraglider aims high as he qualified for world championship
Published on 23 July 2015
Third in the standings before the final round, the Honorary Ambassador of Reunion Island finished well and was confident that he could keep a respectable lead over other competitors alongside an Italian - winner of the competition - and an Israeli. But the top got caught in the end, thanks to a shorter transition mid-course spotted by one of the Greek pilots. In the end, only the Italian retained first place overall, while Sebastien Coupy meanwhile ended with a respectable well-deserved sixth place. A second competitor from Reunion Island, Michel Rullier, also finished in the top 10.
