Short report from Stan Snigir (USA) from the Speed Skydiving season opener 2008 in Skydive Carolina (USA):

"... the competition was hard! 39 degrees celcius, 85% humidity, hard landing area and barely any wind.We got some high exit altitude and had to do some rejumps. Which was not so fun at that temperatures. Chris took the first spot, I took the second and Frederik took the third. Amazon took it all in female and set new US female records ..."

Congratulations for national records:

Jeanne Cameron (USA) 421.81 km/h average speed

Jessy Olson (CAN) 314.7 km/h average speed
