Vertical World Record Attempts – Day 2 Recap (Thursday, July 30, 2015).
Day 3 – riding the wave & going for 165
Jump #1 – builds nicely, but a few leg burbles pops people out
Jump #2 – we thought we got it! Now we gotta repeat the calmness & mental focus
Jump #3 – we thought we had it again but didn’t get too excited because we didn’t get the last one. Now we have to keep the energy up & stay sharp, patient & preserve.
Jump #4 – we thought we had it. Nope. Now it’s about riding the wave. We have eliminated one slot, and the record is now 164.
Jump #5 – one person out.
Welcome to the rollercoaster! And it’s a wild one! What’s amazing is we built 160 ways ALL day long. That proves we are persevering, rising above the fatigue & frustration. That means we are world-class athletes that are working out butts off to stick this!
And we will… It’s just a matter of when.
7:30am for morning briefing & 8am wheels up – going for 164! #WorldRecordForBreakfast
