Australian Parachute Team delegates will be treated to a special performance by global platinum-selling artist Kate Perry and Grammy Award-winning superstar Usher at the closing ceremony of the World Parachuting Championships mondial on December 8.

Skydivers on the Australian Parachute Team (APT) were treated to a weekend away at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra from 22-23 September.

Dedicated, driven and humble are three words that come to mind when describing Australian Parachute Team skydiver Kate Rogers, who has been nominated by Australian Women's Health and Fitness Magazine for their "I Support Women in Sport" Awards in the category of "Local Heroine". 

Picture multiple World Parachuting Championship events taking place at a drop zone where competitors can take in views of the stunning Palm Jumeirah from 14,000 ft above the earth – and it’s easy to see why the 2012 WPC Mondial in Dubai is shaping up to be the biggest competitive skydiving event in history.
