The Stavanger Major Series got a visit from the sky above Saturday, as the Red Bull Sky Dive Team aimed to land right inside the Centre Court. Do you think they succeeded?
A helicopter circulates Center Court as the super-exciting looser final between Germany’s Ludwig/Walkenhorst and Netherland’s Meppelink/Van Iersel comes to a close with an absolutely nerve-wrecking end rally won by Meppeling/Van Iersel, earning them 3. place in Stavanger Major. Four figures eject the helicopter into thin air, rapidly falling towards Stavanger Harbour. The four dots in the air are Marco Waltenspiel, Georg Lettner, Dominic Roithmair and Marco Fürst, four of the Red Bull Sky Dive Team.
Four parachutes open over a Center Court filled with people whose faces all point into the open sky. The aim for the skydivers is to hit the sand of Center Court. Will they make it?
One by one the team glide in like seagulls on the breeze, landing perfectly in the middle of the Center Court, bringing the beach volleyball for the gold medal match with them. The crowd is thrilled. What a show!
