U.S., France fly high as indoor skydiving champs

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The stakes could not have been higher as individuals and teams from around the world battled it out at the 3rd FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championship which came to a close on Saturday (April 20) in Lille, France.

Indoor skydivers compete inside a specially designed vertical wind tunnel surrounded in glass where they perform a series of moves while suspended mid-air by a jet of fast-moving air.

Champions were crowned in several categories over the weekend in solo competitions as well as in teams of two, four and eight.

The United States walked away with three gold medals in the Formation Skydiving (FS) 8-Way, Vertical Formation Skydiving, and Dynamic 2-Way events, according to results from The World Air Sports Federation (FAI -- Fédération Aéronautique Internationale).

Meanwhile, hosts France also scored big with wins in the Dynamic 4-Way event and the FS 4-Way (Women) competitions.

Germany's Rafael Schwaiger became the first German to win the Solo Freestyle (Open) competition.
