BASE Jumping Superstar Sets New Record

BASE jump­ing super­star Valery Rozov set yet anoth­er world record in the sport. After a 30-day expe­di­tion and 6‑day ascent to the top of the 21,000 foot Mt. Shiv­ling in the Indi­an Himalayas, it took Rozov only 90 sec­onds to sail down in his wing­suit. The jump earned Rozov the world record in high­est ever launch, hit­ting speeds of 125mph.

The Russ­ian base jumper can add that breath­tak­ing feat to his oth­er achieve­ments in the sport which include jump­ing into an active vol­cano in Kam­chat­ka, East­ern Rus­sia in 2009 and from Ulve­tan­na Peak in the Antarc­tic in 2010.
