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.
