Gold and Silver for Team GB in Spain

17 Fai European Paragliding Championships in Pegalajar 2024

After a hard-fought contest over 10 tasks in Pegalajar, Spain, the British Team came home with a Team Gold Medal and an individual Silver Medal for Sebastian Ospina.

Despite the presence of a very strong French team, the British team took the lead after the 7th task and didn’t look back. Maxime Pinot led from Day 2 and took individual Gold.

Seb Ospina won the 4th task and remained in strong contention throughout, climbing the rankings to take individual Silver. Dylan Mansley flew extremely well, holding 6th place at one point to eventually finish 18th. The French pilots faltered on Task 7 and were never able to catch up, eventually setting for Team Silver ahead of Slovenia. Top woman Constance Mettetal led from Day 1 to take Gold.   

Congratulations to Seb, Dylan, Martin Long, Richard Meek, Jacob Butterworth Grant Oseland and Magdalena Janaway on a brilliant win, ably supported by Team Captain Steve Senior.
