We are proud to announce that Australian Peak 4
pilot Kari Ellis has joined the exclusive club of women overall comp winners, topping the podium of the Manilla XC Camp 2017.
This is the first time a woman has won a paragliding event in Australia! Tasking seven out of eight days, she achieved 1006 kms during this long-established open cross-country event (fly where you like!). In a sport where women are under-represented, this is a fantastic achievement.
Kari said about her comp: "Thank you Niviuk for a great glider in the Peak 4, and thank you to all my buddies who I shared the air with each day! In a sport dominated by men, I have never been prouder to fly the flag for women in paragliding than I am today
Huge congratulations to Kari!
