The two-day event took place January 22-23, 2016 at the Windoor facility in Costa Brava, Spain. After 8 rounds, the SDC Core team finished out their runs with a total of 227 points. Runner-up was Swiss team Avalon Realfly Sion (the winner in the category at last year’s games) with 209 points, followed by French team Transfert with a score of 188. Audience members and judges alike were impressed by SDC Core’s precision, coordination and acrobatic skills. A reporter from Skydive Mag was on-site for the event and was particularly impressed by the performance given recent set-backs faced by the team:
“SDC are worthy winners, amazingly fast, neat and with every little detail honed. They should be congratulated on an outstanding performance, particularly given they had a new team member just 5 weeks ago as they lost one to an injury.”
