New Bunjee Jump Record goes to Aussie

October 8th, 2013

Australian, Jay Phoenix has leaped into the record books by doing more bungee jumps than anyone else in the space of 24 hours. He only needed to jump more than 106 times to claim the record, but in the end he managed an impressive 150 jumps in 21 hours.

A thick elastic cord was tied to his ankles as he jumped from a 40m-high (130ft) platform on a crane near Brisbane, in Queensland. The previous record holder was South African Kevin Scott Huntly, who jumped 105 times in 2011.

It is believed bungee jumping was invented by thrill-seeking students in the UK in the late 1970s. As well as buildings, cranes and bridges, enthusiasts have also jumped from hot air balloons and helicopters.
