Meet Laso Schaller, the 27-year-old Brazilian born Swiss raised adrenaline junkie who just set the new world record for cliff jumping. Red Bull sponsored the jump, which set the record free-fall measuring in at 58.8 m (192 feet) in 3.58 seconds reaching speeds of up to 76 mph.
The jump was filmed in Maggia, Switzerland and required Red Bull challenge organizers to build a wooded platform in order to avoid a collision with any potentially dangerous rocks. The previous record belongs to Olivier Favre who cleared a distance of 177 feet in 1987. Schaller’s jump went off nearly perfect except for the fact that he dislocated his hip on impact. Not too shabby.
