The extreme sports event attracted the world's top 15 wingsuit fliers from nine countries including the US, Britain, France, Italy and Norway. Only eight contestants advanced to the next day's final.

The sport involves the art of flying the human body through the air using a special jumpsuit, called a wingsuit, which adds surface area to enable a significant increase in lift.
