DSC 9890


DOHA (QAT) – The 44th World Military Parachuting Championship ended this Monday in Doha with the Closing Ceremony and the awarding of the Trophies.


For one week, our parachutist athletes could enjoy exceptional infrastructures, almost perfect weather conditions and a superb atmosphere thanks to the Qatari delegation which had done everything possible to welcome the big CISM family, in collaboration with Colonel Gernot Rittenschober, PCSC Parachuting, and his team who also did everything possible to make the Championship go smoothly.

Some results were still to come at the end of the week and the competitions were tight until the end with several tie-breaks that had to be added to the programme.


Already winner of the Freefall Style Junior Male competition, German OR-5 Robin Griesheimer proved to be the strongest in the Individual Accuracy Male with a total of 4 points and took the first place with a one-point lead over 1CL Mathieu Guinde (FRA), OR-7 Stefan Wiesner (GER) and OR-7 Christoph Zahler. The three 5-point skydivers had to settle with a tie-break. In the end, the Frenchman Guinde won the silver medal ahead of Wiesner, the bronze medalist.

This superb performance also allowed Robin Griesheimer to win the Junior Individual Accuracy Male competition ahead of the Belarusian Sergeants Viachaslau Seuntitski and Mikita Nikitsin, who won silver and bronze respectively.


The German team, composed of Zahler, Griesheimer, Kautzmann, Erthel and Wiesner, also finished on top of the Team Accuracy Male ranking ahead of Belarus (Kirshenkov, Pozdniakov, Gurinovich, Tsitou and Krasnikau) and Russia (Bykov, Pasiaev, Kotov, Melnikov and Maksimov).

Thanks to her first place in accuracy and fifth place in style, German sensation Robin Griesheimer also won the Individual Overall Male ranking for her third participation in a CISM World Military Championship. We are convinced that CISM's new shooting star will shine for many years to come. Griesheimer thus offers a world title to the German delegation, which manages to place two other parachutists on the podium: Stefan Wiesner takes the silver medal while Christoph Zahler finishes on the third step of the podium.


Not surprisingly, Robin Griesheimer also won the Junio Individual Overall Male ranking ahead of two compatriots, with Leon Dieser and Nils Elia Kammer completing the podium.


Germany continued its raid by winning the Team Overall Male Competition ahead of Russia and the Czech Republic.

In the Women's competition, Russian Private Vlada Krivenko, who had already achieved an excellent fourth place in style, won the Individual Accuracy Female competition with a total of 9 points ahead of Belarusian Corporal Valeryia Barysava and Chief Warrant Officer Déborah Ferrand, who had to settle for a tiebreaker won by Barysava. Private Vlada Krivenko also finished on top of the Junior Individual Accuracy Female competition ahead of her two teammates Sergeant Kseniia Fominykh and Sergeant Mariia Elkina.

Despite their excellent individual results, the Russian team, composed of Laktionova, Furman, Elkina, Fominykh and Tusheva, finished behind Belarus (Nalivaika, Barysava, Shastakovich, Nikitsiuk and Kotava) who won the Team Accuracy Female ranking. The French team, led by Ferrand, Texier, Ollivier de Pury and Jaguelin, finished third.


For her first participation in a CISM World Military Championship, Private Vlada Krivenko, 1st in Accuracy and 4th in Style, achieved the immense performance of winning the Individual Overall Female ranking and thus became the military parachuting world champion! This is an unprecedented performance that will be followed by others for our young parachutist. She is ahead of her compatriot Evgeniia Furman, while the Frenchwoman Léocadier Ollivier de Pury finishes third.

Surprisingly, despite her first place in the Individual Overall Female, Vlada Krivenko takes the second place in the Junior Individual Overall Female ranking behind her compatriot Kseniia Fominykh. With a total of three points each, the two Russian skydivers had to settle for a tie-break jump won by Fominykh. Their compatriot Mariia Elkina completed the podium and won bronze!


The Russian women's team also won the Team Overall Female competition ahead of Belarus and Morocco, who won silver and bronze respectively.


In the medals ranking, Russia unsurprisingly takes the first place with a total of 21 medals, far ahead of Germany (15 medals) and Belarus (6 medals).
