Her fellow countryman GAO Tianbo won the men's individual style junior, while Germany's Elischa WEBER proved that it is possible for other countries to top the podium by claiming victory in the men's individual style.

China leads the parachuting medals table, with six golds and three silver. Russia have won 10 medals so far, with four silver and six bronze, but except Germany, Morocco is the second country who bagged a gold medal.
