    OMARAMA, New Zealand (December 24, 2007) – Sebastian Kawa of Poland was today announced the FAI World GP Gliding Champion after five days of intense racing in the skies above New Zealand’s Southern Alps.

    The world’s current number one ranked glider pilot, Sebastian Kawa claimed the title by five points with an overall score of 30. Uli Schwenk (GER) and Ben Flewett (NZE) tied for second place with 25 points.

    Kawa was delighted with his win and fourth World Champion title. “It was fast racing today which is a good contrast to previous days. With this kind of task you are unsure what the others will do. I flew an independent race, and was able to keep pace with the leading gliders. It has been a tough competition with an excellent field of pilots. It’s a great Christmas gift for my family,” he said.
