J O'D hangs it up

Quoting from Hippocket and Fly Quiet UK  the well known UK Free Flight Competitor John O'Donnell  made an announcement last weekend at the end of the British Nationals and the gist of it is below:

You all know that I have been flying for a very long time.  This, in fact, is my 62nd consecutive F/F Nationals. However there is not going be a 63rd  !

It has become ever more difficult to find the requirements (retrieval ability,energy,effort and determination) that I consider necessary to compete 'properly'. To do otherwise is unappealing.

I have seen many good flyers deteriorate and end up merely 'going through the motions'. This is not a route I intend to follow. I believe it is better 'to go with a bang rather than a whimper'.

Topping the Rubber flyoff at this Nationals, added to winning the Gamage a few weeks ago, would seem to me to be enough of a Bang - so -

I am retiring from Free Flight Competition - effective immediately

For me the game is over

John O'Donnell

John is renowned for his outstanding competition record.  He understands, probably better than anyone all the components that contribute to success on free flight competition and has maintained this high level of performance for so many years. A bio can be found at the following link.
