OLEG - THE WORLD CHAMPION !!! 2005-01-20
On January 19 the Hang Gliding World Championship finished in Australia. Over 100 world's leading pilots participated in the Worlds 2005. After two weeks of hard competition Oleg Bondarchuk, the only representative of Ukraine at these comps, has won an impressive victory. Austrian pilots Robert Reisinger and Gerolf Heinrichs finished second and third respectively. The first team place was possessed by the host team of the Worlds 2005, the Australians. This achievement is a proof of Oleg's skills and experience. During the five previous years he has been ranked first in the FAI rating, but has never been the World Champion before. This victory is even more impressive if we consider the fact that Oleg got it alone, competing with pilots from other countries who worked for victory in teams. The COMBAT L being a world champion glider is a reward well-deserved by AEROS for years of commitment to hang gliding. AEROS gliders have been chosen by almost one third of the pilots flying in the Worlds.

Another meet is ahead, the Bogong Cup, where Oleg was invited personally by the meet organisers.
