Italy’s Nicole Fedele has claimed a new women’s world record for ‘Distance using up to three turn points’ after flying 256 km on 5 November from Quixada, Brazil. The claim has been submitted to the FAI for ratification.
The flight comes at the end of a record-breaking year for Nicole, who has a history of record-breaking flights.
In November last year her out-and-return world record was ratified for a 164.6 km flight in Slovenia in August 2009, while this year she set a further two women’s world records.
Flying in Slovenia she claimed a paragliding women’s speed over a 100 km out-and-return world record on 24 May, as well as a women’s world record for speed over a 50 km triangle at 21.75 km/h on 1 July.
