We are very thrilled to announce that  Xhonatan Islami from the paragliding team of Albania was ranked in the top 10 Best in the World.

The event was scheduled to take place from the 6th until the 16th of October 2021. The organizing team, led by Goran Dimiskovski and Martin Jovanoski, together with their Safety Director, Ivan Lukanov, will be ensuring a safe and fair event.

130 pilots from 33 nations will be competing for the title. The maximum number of pilots constituting a national team is 7 in total with 5 of one gender, but only 3 scores from every round count for the team score.

This Paragliding Accuracy World Championship is the most internationally presented to date: 33 nations against 28 that participated in the worlds of 2019 and 2017. In the previous years, the number of participating nations was much less. Twenty years ago the first-ever PGA Worlds 2000 started in Middle Wallop in the United Kingdom with just 25 pilots and 4 nations. The number of competing nations has constantly grown reaching its peak this 2021.
Bearing in mind the effects of Covid-19 around the world, it is amazing that the current championship participation not only reached pre-pandemic level but also exceeded it in terms of international representation.
