Well, maybe it’s more a case of controlled falling, but wingsuit daredevil Jhonathan Florez leapt from a plane cruising at 37,265ft over Colombia, then flew like a “human bird” reaching speeds of up to 100mph, to break four world records. Wow wow wow is all we can say!
With oxygen cylinders on his back, Florez, who completed the jump on April 20 in Colombia, is reported in The Telegraph as saying:
“It was just an amazing feeling when I completed the jump. It was the best moment of my life.
“When you are up there it really feels like you are flying. It was great to break so many records in just one attempt. I had to complete a lot of training to prepare my body for the jump as you get put under great pressure travelling through air - the winds can hit speeds of 120mph.
“You have to be strong enough to be able to manoeuvre your body and I was up there for a long time.”
