Watch – Japanese skier flies 291 meters, but it is not a world record

Watch – Japanese skier flies 291 meters, but it is not a world record

Skateboarder Ryoyu Kobayashi performed a sensational performance in Iceland. The Japanese star only landed 291 metres, at least 37.5 meters short of the world record. Unfortunately for Kobayashi, his attempt doesn't count.

Ryoyu Kobayashi and his team traveled to Iceland to attempt the record. There they spent more than two months building a snow castle in the mountains.

It was located at an altitude of 1115 meters and sloped a maximum of 36 degrees to 755 metres, a difference of 360 metres.

The dream of Kobayashi, who raced downhill at a top speed of 107 kilometers per hour and split the air in 8 seconds.

The 27-year-old Japanese landed just 291 metres. Thus, he closed a distance of no less than 37.5 meters from the world record.

Unfortunately for Kobayashi, his attempt doesn't count. For the International Ski Federation (FIS), the world record can only be jumped in competition. In addition, the ramp is not certified in Iceland and the materials cannot be inspected on site by a FIS inspector.

The world record remains in the name of Austrian Stefan Kraft (253.5 metres). Kobayashi is richer.
