It’s five in a row for Daniela Moroz – The Log
SARDINIA, ITALY – The Formula Kite World Championship took place in Sardinia, Italy from October 11-17. Daniela Moroz, 20, of the US KiteFoil Squad, successfully defended her title for the fifth time in a row, placing first out of 70 women (two fleets).
Anticipation increased after a brief postponement due to light winds. In addition, a new scoring system, which will apply to the debut of the kite in Paris 2024, was applied during the competition. After Moroz in the final, Briton Ellie Aldridge finished second, French Lauriane Nolot third and French Poema Newland fourth.
“I’m really happy to do five,” Moroz said in a Formula Kite Olympic Kiteboarding article. “It’s really surreal and I haven’t dealt with it yet. I’m still absorbing and enjoying it. It’s been a tough week in all conditions. Then, in the end, it all comes down to it. at the last race I was really a little nervous this morning but we got through it.
