Heat Wave Challenge:

The competitors faced an additional challenge as the San Javier area and the rest of Spain were hit by a heatwave, with temperatures soaring above 40°C and humidity exceeding 50%. The anticyclone "Charon" was to blame for the searing conditions. In an unprecedented move in CISM parachuting history, the Meet Director took the decision to pause the competition in the afternoon to allow participants to cool down and relax on the nearby beaches of Mar Menor.

Following the break, the competition resumed at 5:30 pm to conclude Round 4 of Formation and Round 3 of Freefall Style.

Formation Skydiving:

After the completion of the fourth round, the male Formation Skydiving leaderboard remains tight, with Spain and Türkiye both scoring 25 points, separated by a mere two points. Meanwhile, Quatar holds a comfortable 10-point lead.


In the female Formation Skydiving category, the battle for gold is equally intense, with Korea (91 points) holding a slim lead of two points over Morocco (89 points), with the Spanish female team in third place.
