Current Ladies' Super Final champion.
Pilot 007, this year's Miss Bond: Méryl Delferriere (FRA)
Méryl started paragliding when she was 13 years old. She went to Pôle Espoir de Font Romeu in the Pyrenees in France with many of the other rising stars of the French paragliding world.
Méryl was 10th overall in her second ever Super Final, the 9th SF held in Roldanillo, Colombia in 2018, coming in the top ten overall in two tasks. She was also 2nd lady in the 2018 European Championships. She was 7th overall in the recent 10th Super Final. Once again, she came in the top ten overall in two tasks.
After the Super Final in March, Méryl continued to show that she is unstoppable by coming 16th overall and first lady in the Montegrappa Trophy 2019 in April in Italy. In 2018, Méryl was one of the World Cup's most consistent pilots overall: 10th in the Super Final; 9th in Baixo Guandu, Brazil; 10th in Sopot, Bulgaria.
She has been on the number 1 spot on the ladies' podium five times: the Super Final in Baixo Guandu, Brazil; in 2018 Sopot, Bulgaria; Baixo Guandu, Brazil; Bright, Australia; in 2017, Coeur de Savoie, France. This puts Méryl in third place for Women's Paragliding World Cup wins after Seiko FUKUOKA NAVILLE (14) and Keiko Hiraki (8) who will both also be competing in Coeur de Savoie.
One to watch not just for a place on the ladies' podium but also in the overalls.
