Martin Jovanoski wins PWC Asian Tour in South Korea

Monday 24 October, 2022

Martin Jovanoski won the PWC Asian Tour 2022 round that was held in Mungyeong, South Korea from 15-22 October 2022.

Jinhee Baek was top woman, in 17th place overall, and Gin Gliders took the team prize by a large margin.

The PWC reported: “The winners of the 2022 World Cup Asian Tour are Martin Jovanoski, Jinhee Baek and team Gin Gliders.

“Having convincingly won the World Cup in Gochang the previous week, Martin was a favourite to win here in Mungyeong and he didn’t disappoint. He came in the top ten in all three tasks. Jinhee was first lady in each task and came in the top ten overall in two out of the three tasks.

“For team Gin Gliders, with three out of three task wins, there could be no other winner!

“Chigwon Won was the top Asian pilot. He has already won three World Cup tasks and is definitely a maestro of the thermals here in Korea.”

Pilots from 19 different countries took part in the competition in South Korea, which relaunched the Paragliding World Cup’s Asian Tour.

Organisers added, “A big thank you to Gin Seok Song and Yunjo Han, their KPGA team here in Mungyeong, and all the government officials for their support.”
