Quoting Tillet (News Report):

Daredevil rollerblader smashes own record. A Frenchman has set a new world record for the longest jump on rollerblades in front of thousands of spectators at the weekend.

Thirty-five-year old Taig Khris launched off a 150m long ramp in front of Paris’ Sacre Coeur Basilica (Sacred Heart) monument and achieved a world record jump of 29m, French website QuestFrance.fr reports.

After an initial jump of 28.4m, Khris had already broken the previous record of 24m, which was set by American Danny Way.

Spurred on by the thousands of people who had gathered to see him, the adrenalin junkie rolled down the custom-made launch pad and managed to improve his jump by a metre before safely landing on an inflatable cushion.

Last May, Khris had achieved a world record by executing the highest jump off the first floor of France’s iconic Eiffel Tower.

Jeremy Dumont, 12, who saw the jump with his parents told the website the sight was spectacular. “It’s magical. It is in the air, it flies over Paris,” he said. The boy’s mother, Pascaline Dumont added: “It looks like a bird [flying] over Paris. It’s impressive”.
