Ken Stornes' record breaking death dive

Death diving is a form of high diving that involves jumping and soaring through the air with an exposed stomach and stretched out arms. Unlike a proper belly dive, competitors curl up right before hitting the water, often times with judges judging how long the original position was held. Would you be shocked if I said this was a Norwegian thing? The world championship takes place in Oslo, Norway, every year.

The current world record for this insane sport in Ken Stornes, and I mean it when I say his world record jump is insane. He leapt an impressive 40.5 meters, or around 133 feet. That would be a massive cliff jump in any position, let alone in this massive, arms spread out move.
