// May 29th, 2013 // Entertainment News

Valery Rozov, a Russian daredevil, claimed a world base jumping record this month in a leap off the north face of Mount Everest using a special wingsuit built for the occasion. The jump was from 23,687 feet (7,220 meters) to a glacier below at 19,521 feet (5,950 meters). Rozov glided for over a minute reaching speeds of 125 MPH in the record jump.

“Only when I got back home did I see how hard it was for me both physically and psychologically.”

RedBull posted a video of the jump which you can watch below.
