LUC AND SEIKO WIN 2021 PWC SUPERFINAL
The most important race of the year, and of the last several years due to Covid cancellations, has just wrapped up in Disentis, Switzerland, with Ozone designer, Luc Armant, winning overall gold. Seiko Fukuoka Naville took the women’s gold medal (her 16th PWC gold and her third Superfinal champion title! #GOAT).
103 of the world’s top competition pilots were reunited in the heart of the Alps to fly seven tasks over the rocky peaks and glaciers of the Alpine main ridge. More than 500kms of task distances were set.
Flying his new Submarine prototype harness, Luc Armant, won three tasks and the overall Superfinal Champion title. Despite a very competitive glider field, pilots reported that Luc’s innovative Submarine harness design delivered a significant edge to him and the other two pilots flying it.
