On request from the Organising Committee of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, FAI has selected Paragliding as a potential additional event. FAI, CIVL, the Japan Aeronautic Association and the Japan Hang and Paragliding Federation have worked on a proposal.
By the end of September, we will know if our sport is in the “short list”. The International Olympic Committee will then choose from it.
