Zoe Ball attempts world record

September 5th, 2013

Radio 2’s Zoe Ball along with colleagues Dan Walker and Bobbie Pryor attempted to set a brand new World Record for ‘amount of high fives in a vertical wind tunnel’!

As no record had been set before, a minimum of 15 high fives were needed, but sadly the team, which attempted the feat in front of a representative from Guinness World Records at Bodyflight in Milton Ernest, failed to hit the target.

However, after Ball left, a team of three instructors from Bodyflight attempted themselves and set an official new world record!

The Radio 2 team was unable to break that number, but the team of Parker, Tom Worboys and Paul Mayer smashed the required total, managing 196.

World record holder Ged Parker said: “The BBC guys asked a lot of themselves in trying to set this record, but it just wasn’t happening for them today.

“We weren’t even going to attempt it, but after they didn’t manage to set a record, we decided to give it a go.”

Parker, who is also a skydiver added: “I’ve never tried to attempt anything like this before, and I’m sure the others haven’t either. We were buzzing after we set the record.

“It was a really fun day and Zoe and the guys were a great laugh.”
