Joachim Oberhauser (ITA) won the Paragliding World Cup in Clopotiva, Romania, which finished on 2 July 2022. Constance Mettetal was the first woman, in 22nd position overall.
Joachim finished 50 points ahead of second-placed French pilot Justin Puthod, who was competing in his first ever PWC. “A very promising debut into this elite domain,” wrote the PWC’s Ruth Jessop.
The Clopotiva round was the fifth event on the 2022 calendar and the PWC’s first time in Romania. Five tasks were scored, ranging from 50km to 88km with one stopped due to deteriorating conditions. Next stop is Krushevo, Republic of Macedonia, from 14-21 July.
