  Longest indoor freefall-world record set by Bear Grylls

 MILTON KEYNES, UK 
-- The adventurer Bear Grylls broke the World Record for the longest indoor freefall by "flying" for 97 minutes.

  Each minute of indoor body-flying is the equivalent of one skydive, and the whole 97 minutes is the same as falling 242 miles continuously or the distance from Milton Keynes to Newcastle.

  Speaking after his achievement Bear Grylls, who is also the youngest Briton to climb Everest, said: "I've never had to concentrate so much in my whole life. It required digging a lot deeper than I expected and has been one of the most intense records I have ever broken. I'm really proud to have done this and to set a new World Record."

   Bear Grylls has been involved in several solo and team based feats in the name of charity or record breaking but his latest attempt took place at the Airkix indoor skydiving tunnel in the city centre.

   Bear's passion and enthusiasm for the outdoors became clear in his television documentary 'Born Survivor: Bear Grylls'.
