Ski World Record Made by Mistake
Proof that a Norwegian skier unintentionally made a record-breaking cliff jump has emerged. Footage showing free skier Fred Syversen shooting over a 107 metre (351 feet) cliff has been leaked nearly a year after the event took place.
The record had been in contention because of a lack of evidence. But the new video shows Syversen making the accidental, record jump . Syversen, who was filming a ski video at the time was preparing to undertake a massive cliff jump in the French Alps.
