Young Indoor Skydiver Brings Home a Bronze Medal

Young Indoor Skydiver Brings Home a Bronze Medal

We at Manner Borne Chauffeurs would like you to join us in congratulating a young athlete who is close to our hearts. Oliver, aged just 9 years old, has competed in his first major indoor skydiving competition and brought home a bronze medal.

Oliver first tried indoor skydiving at iFly Manchester in an ‘experience’ session at the tender age of 3. He liked being Superman and took his friends to try it at his 4th birthday party. At this point, he stood out from his peers as having a natural ability to feel the wind. Unfortunately, Covid stopped any real training and progression, so he began his new journey just 12 months ago, working through various skill levels.

In a developing sport, limited resources are accessible locally, so training involved several trips to Poland and Finland to access affordable, quality training. This is where Manner Borne was able to step in and help this young athlete. Manner Borne provided high-quality, timely transfers to both Liverpool and Manchester airport for Oliver and his family. This ensured that he was able to attend training camps to progress his skills.

It all paid off recently in his first major competition. The German National Indoor Skydiving Championships took place on 8th – 9th March 2024 at Hurricane Factory in Berlin, offering classes for formation skydiving teams, dynamic teams and freestyle individual flyers alongside classes for handifly flyers and kids classes. This ensured that it was an all-inclusive event.

After 4 gruelling rounds displaying both compulsory movements and freestyle movements in a powerful wind tunnel to a packed audience, Oliver was delighted to have secured the bronze medal against other young flyers up to age 14 from several different nations.
