PSL 8 COMES TO AN EXCITING END AS THE TROPHY FLEW IT’S WAY TO THE STADIUM – ALL THANKS TO RED BULL
After a nail-biting contest and emotional moments between Multan Sultans & Lahore Qalandars, Pakistan Super League (PSL) eighth edition drew to a close with a fantastic closing ceremony at the iconic Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Saturday night saw the eighth season of Pakistan Super League (PSL) culminate on a note so high the audience literally saw it in the sky. Red Bull paragliding and paramotor athlete from Spain, Horacio Llorens made PSL history when he flew from Multan to Lahore at the PSL Closing Ceremony at the Qaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
Just after traditional festivities of the ceremony, the host brought the audience’s attention to a surprise act. A video played where Horacio picked up a surprise package from the Multan Cricket Stadium and flew all the way to Lahore.
As the video ended, the audience was treated to Llorens paramotoring above the stadium, much to their excitement. The Red Bull athlete, a five-time world champion and Guinness World Record holder, brought the surprise package carrying Supernova, the PSL 8 Trophy!
It was the first time that a paramotor stunt was performed live on a cricket ground in PSL history, witnessed by thousands in attendance and millions on TV. Redbull’s innovative and incredible stunts each year have now become a staple of PSL ceremonies as they bring a new level of excitement and entertainment for the audiences each time!
