On July 7th, three-time world champion Taig Khris set a new world record for the longest roller-skate jump. The 35-year-old French daredevil, thrilled the throng of people gathered in the Montemartre district of Paris, by skating down the launch and jumping 95ft., before landing into a giant airbag.
And if that wasn't enough, the stuntman repeated the jump and even added in a front flip for effect! Along the way, he broke the existing record of 78 ft. set by American stunt jumper, Danny Way.
This is not the first time the Frenchman has wowed his audience with his daring stunts. In 2010, he jumped 131ft. from the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, setting a new record for the highest roller skate jump.
