News » Skydiver of the Year 2010 - Alan Thompson
Council has awarded the Taz Causer Skydiver of the Year trophy to Alan Thompson.
Alan was born deaf and always wanted to be a parachutist. People told him it was a stupid idea, but he never gave up. In 1998, he seized the opportunity to make a tandem descent. That was it! He never looked back. In 2010, Alan was proud to represent the UK as freefall videographer with FS 4-way women's Team Bodyflight, part of the British National Delegation to the World Parachuting Championships held in Menzelinsk, Russia. Alan and the rest of the team brought home a World Silver Medal. Alan's dream has come true. His award will be presented at the AGM.
