A skydiver flying into a stadium with a flag or a flame is nothing new for sports fans… they have seen even the Queen of England do it. But how many has seen it from the perspective of the man under the chute?
The ball for the final match of the Durand Cup Football Tournament between Salgaocar Football Club and Pune Football Club at RAIA Sports Complex in Margao, Goa was flown in by Col Prashant Kapoor, SM, of the Indian Army. He used a GoPro camera to record his jump on November 8. Here is what he saw.
For the record Salgaocar worn the match 1-0 thanks to a goal by Thangjam Saran Singh in the 21st minute. For us, the jump seems much more exciting.
