Paragliding World Cup Results in Kyrenia Invalidated

The results of the Paragliding Accuracy World Cup held at Tatlisu have been discounted, after the Greek Cypriot Air Sports Federation (NAC) made strong protests to the World Air Sports Federation (FAI).

The FAI had announced that the first leg of the event was scheduled to take place in Mersin, Turkey but the venue was then moved to Kyrenia without the consent of the Cyprus Air Sports Federation.

After protests by South Cyprus, the FAI agreed to discount the results “as Cyprus per international law is one area.” “The Northern part of Cyprus is only recognised by Turkey, and events cannot take place there without support by the Cyprus NAC,” a message on its website read.
