In the old days, we had a single National Champion.

Now we have:
World Class
Standard Class
Motorgliders
Two place
15 meter
18 meter
Club/Sports
Two Place
Open
etc.


I think it's kind of nice that we have so many champions.

For comparison, look at the chess world. At any given time
there may be a couple of dozen astoundingly good chess players,
any of whom, on a good day, could win a game (though not
all the games) against the champ. But they get no respect.

We, on the other hand, give respect to 10 or more
astoundingly good pilots.
