jump on roller skates - Taig Khris sets world
record PARIS, France -- French extreme in-line
skating champion Taig Khris (a.k.a the 'ramp warrior')
launched himself off the first floor of the Eiffel Tower some
40 metres above ground onto a quarterpipe, with a freefall
of 41 feet (12.5 metres) - setting the new world record for
jump on roller skates.
Thousands of people gathered to watch the
French daredevil roller skater drop from the first level of
the Eiffel Tower and onto a high skate ramp.
After completing theWorld's Highest
jump on roller skates, he said:"Two years non-stop,
I didn't sleep for nights and nights for that small moment
up there and now, as you can see, I made it so that's cool."
"I've never had such a strong adrenaline
rush," he told AFP after the vertiginous jump.
