HAIKOU, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) — Guo Jing won the women's title at the Glider event for the 2020 Tour Hainan Island Flight Contest here on Wednesday.

"I could see the beautiful sea and buildings from a paraglider, but the wind kept changing, it is quite difficult to land, and the technical requirements are especially high," said Guo after the match.
"This is the first time for Hainan to hold the paragliding competition, I hope to take this opportunity to promote the standard way to participate in paragliding in Hainan," said Huang Renfeng, executive director of the Hainan Aviation Sports Association.
