Congratulation going out to Norwegian skier Anders Backe who has reclaimed the world record for the fastest speed downhill skiing backwards. The previous record was set by Switzerland’s Elias Ambüehl in 2017.

Anders chose a Vikersund Hill, a 240 meter high ski jump in Norway for his record attempt and achieved his goal in super badass fashion throwing a high speed 180° off the jump and taking the runout switch.

“When you drop in, things are going so fast. You are quickly up to around 100km/h in the in-run, doing the 180 out of the ski jump, and then focusing on stomping the landing and keeping the position and balance all the way down. And also getting ready for the g-force at the bottom!”

Hats off to Anders, that was sick!
