Contestants joining the 10th International Paragliding Competition, which was hosted by Australia, are flying paragliders. This contest was held in a small city, Manilla, 400 kilometers northwest of Sydney, with participating competitors from 45 countries, and will continue for the next two weeks. Manilla, with good environmental conditions such as favorable weather and locations, is known as a mecca for long-distance flights. The city was the site of a world record-breaking linear distance flight of 355 kilometers.
