ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany man strikes gold--twice, and breaks a world record while at it. Chris Gay is a member of the United States Parachute Association.
Earlier this month, he participated in the World Parachuting Championships in Russia.
As part of the 4-way and 2-way sequential team Clean Air, Gay brought home gold medals. His 2-way team also set a new world record for most completed formations in one minute.
Though he's made more than 11,000 skydives, Gay says he always gets a rush competing, as does his teammate Liz Godwin.
Gay said, "It feels good anytime we do it, of course. I mean anytime we have the chance to bring home a gold for the U.S. and you stand on top of the podium and you here the national anthem start, it's hard to describe, but it's a great feeling."
Godwin said, "To pursue a goal like this is something that has totally changed my life."
Gay works as an engineer part-time and as a competitive and professional skydiver the rest of the year.
