Some notable achievements:
Jackson Gerard - Broke / Shattered the Boys World Record increasing it to 10,550 Pts.
David Small ? A record SIX World Overall Titles

With Georgia's overall win in Open we now have 4 countries that have produced Women World Champions, USA, AUS, RSA, and now NZ, while we only have 3 federations that have produced Men World Champions, USA, AUS, GBR, so it appears that the womens skill levels are crossing borders faster than the Mens

Ashleigh Stebbeings ? Womens World Jump Record 21.9 Meters
