Your Stomach Will Turn Watching the World Record, 200-Foot High Cliff Jump

By: | August 31st, 2015

I like to consider myself somewhat of a thrill seeker and have been known to jump off some things most people would second-guess, but that’s nothing compared to Laso Schaller.

Schaller recently set the world record for the highest cliff jump by leaping from approximately 200 feet in the air into the water below.

He hit a blistering 76 miles per hour on the way down, making for an interesting impact when he hit the water, to say the least.

I’m no expert, and maybe it’s just the point of view we see in the video, but I wish he would have jumped away from the cliff a tad bit farther.

Every time I watch it I feel like he’s going to hit the rocks before reaching the water.

Luckily, it all pans out and makes for another incredible video from Red Bull.
