Double gold for Italy of the European paragliding: Luca Donini, Molveno (Trent), e la nazionale italiana si aggiudicano i titoli individuale ed a squadre per la seconda volta in pochi anni.
Gli altri azzurri: Aaron Durogati (Merano, Bolzano), Joachim Oberhauser (Termeno, Bolzano), Christian Biasi (Rovereto, Trent), Alberto Vitale (Bologna), Martina Centa (Feltham, Belluno), il CT Alberto Castagna (Cologno Monzese, Milan) e l’aiutante Giorgio Corti (Suello, Lecco).
I campionati si sono svolti ad Abtenau in Austria, non lontano da Salisburgo. Vi hanno preso parte 143 drivers from 33 nazioni che sui monti circostanti avevano a disposizione apposite aree di decollo tra i 1600 and 1832 m. Ovviamente i parapendio, sfruttando le correnti d’aria ascensionale, hanno raggiunto quote ben più elevate, talvolta fino a 3400 m, con forti ratei di salita (9 m/sec) specie sulle pareti dell’ imponente massiccio montuoso del Dagstein.
Inclementi le condizioni del tempo: pioggia e neve hanno costretto gli organizzatori a convalidare solo tre giornate di volo delle dieci previste, sospendendo le altre. Donini ha vinto due manches su tre; l’ultima, grazie anche ad un brillante terzo posto di Biasi su un percorso di oltre 134 km, è stata determinante per tutta la squadra. Alle spalle gli azzurri lasciavano Austria, Slovenia e Francia, mentre il nostro regolava l’austriaco Alex Schalber, second, ed il polacco Rafal Luckos, terzo.
