World record for bungee jumping

A New Zealand man has set a world record for the most bungee jumps in 24 hours, diving 103 times Friday from Auckland’s Harbor Bridge.

Mike Heard set a new world mark with his 102nd jump, then made his 103rd to celebrate.

“I’m feeling pretty sore but not from anything you’d normally get from bungee, just from hitting the water,” Heard said.

“Once you get over the fear, it’s really, really enjoyable.”

Heard broke the record of 101 jumps set in South Africa in 2002. His effort raised NZ$5,000 (US$3,600) for a children’s cancer charity.

Here is a YouTube video from tokenginga of Mike just practicing for his world record attempt – as you can see the guy is kind of crazy but we would like to congratulate him on his world record and for raising so much money for charity. Well done Mike.
