Tasos Polycarpou, the Cypriot skydiver, managed to secure a prominent position for Cyprus at the World Wingsuit Performance competition that recently took place in Florida, USA. Sponsored by DHL Express Cyprus, talented Polycarpou competed under the best circumstances possible, conquering the 13th place in the world ranking.
The competition is based on two rounds, each one of them consisting of three levels, which include time, performance and speed races. Polycarpou, without losing any points at the semi-finals and finals, managed to gain an overall score of 256.6%. The exciting, yet demanding competition which requires great concentration and balance, includes a freefall jump from 12,500 feet, with a special outfit that enables athletes to develop very high speeds that nearly reach 350km/h.
After this great success, Polycarpou is going to take part in six upcoming international competitions, including the Red Bull ACES, the most extreme competition in the world. Polycarpou, having DHL Express Cyprus as a sponsor in this difficult and competitive journey, has all the skills and tools to achieve the best results for him and for Cyprus, while at the same time offering a breathtaking and bold spectacle.
