Got skill, bravery, grace and flair? Then enter Dubai's Bungee Jumping Champs
What’s On has details of competition for all those interested in doing a bungee jump in Dubai. Judges will award points for lea, style, bravery and more.
Thought bungee jumping was just hurling yourself from a great height? Well it is, but you can also do it with grace and flair, and win points for it.
The UAE’s first ever bungee jumping competition May 9 invites first-timers and seasoned jumpers to test their skill and courage from a 50-metre crane.
Individuals and teams of three will progress through three stages, with the top scorers at the end of the day emerging as winners. A panel of judges will award points for leap and freefall style, bravery and pre- and post-jump challenges, among other criteria.
No bungee experience is required, so this is a great chance to tick a bungee jump off your bucket list. All technical and safety aspects will be explained at the start of the day.
Spectators can enjoy on-site entertainment and a climbing wall, and visit the Health Village for healthy foods and an on-site fitness assessment.
The event aims to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Arabia, and may pave the way for the founding of a UAE Bungee Federation.
Entry is now open for anyone between the ages of 14 and 50 via gravityzone.co. Deadline May 8. Prizes and trophies will go to the top two males, females and team.
The competition is organized by Gravity Zone, the UAE’s only permanent bungee site, and endorsed by Dubai Sports Council. In March, Gravity Zone hosted the world record for the most bungee jumps in 24 hours, when British fitness coach Colin Phillips performed a dizzying 151 jumps.
