JERRY MISZEWSKI SHATTERS HIGHLINING WORLD RECORED
The highlining pioneer spent a week and endured countless falls before securing the record
Highlining pioneer Jerry Miszewski released video footage Wednesday of his recent highlining world record,https://vimeo.com/77605845
where he successfully crossed a 704-foot highline 300 feet above the Cosumnes River Gorge near Sacramento, California. (The video is above, and although it is a bit long, it is worth the watch. If you are only interested in observing the difficulty inherent in crossing the line, start the video at 1:11.)
Miszewski shattered the previous record of 494 feet, which highliner Théo Sanson earned in June in France. Every highline is named after it is walked, and the line Miszewski walked was dubbed “the 13th Crossing” after he secured the record.
