    Background: The United States has selected its five man and five women teams to compete in the World Parachuting Championships on July the 25th in Hungary. The two teams were picked at the completion of the annual American Championships which ended on Wednesday (June 26).

    On hundred and fifty of the country's top parachutists took part in the titles. Over the jumping days they had to perform various aerobatics and security tests. Jumping from two and a half thousand feet the parachutists had to complete a set number of routines and land as near as possible to a four inch disc on the ground. Points were given for the various facets and at the end of the competition they were averaged out for each parachutist and the top five men and five women selected for the world titles.

    The inited States and the Soviet Union are favourites to fight out the finish again in Hungary.
