Mikey Lovemore & team Euphoria bring home medals
Congratulations to Mikey Lovemore (left in pic) who won double silver at the World Cup and European Championships in Speed Skydiving. His average speed of 498.23kph over four jumps is faster than the previous UK record for a single jump! He broke 500kph for the first time, one of only five people to ever do so in competition, and is now the 4th fastest speeder ever. Congratulations also to team Euphoria who won double bronze in Freefly. Their 7.9 average put them well ahead of the Norwegian team who came 4th, and was only 0.1 behind the French in silver.
