1. Rob Colpus

    Rob Colpus awarded the BPA Jim Crocker Trophy for his Outstanding Contribution to Sport Parachuting

    Rob Colpus is an icon in the world of sport parachuting who has made us so proud both on the national and international stage in an abundance of competitions and records. Over the years, he wrote a lot of the rules for Formation Skydiving competitions and designed many of the dives that remain in use today. His contribution to our sport, since the 1970s, is magnificent and varied, continuing long after he stepped down as an active competitor. BPA celebrates this, in his retirement year, by the award of the BPA Jim Crocker Trophy in recognition of his Outstanding Contribution to our Sport.
