12. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SKYDIVER, DOMINIK ROITHMAIR, SAYING:
“The goal of the project Megaswing was to go mad with the balloons. To have the possibility to really jump from one balloon and swing to the other with a really long long rope, is something that has never happened before and is for sure a childhood dream. If you ever jumped of a swing you always imagined to jump forever.”

STORY: The Red Bull Skydive Team pushed themselves to new limits on Monday (September 26) as they attempted to set a new world record for the longest swing in the world.
Swooping from below two hot air ballons, the daredevils dropped on giant swings through the air for 125 metres before flipping off the contraption and parachuting to the ground.
The world record swing of 125 metres is awaiting official approval.
After intensive planning, the crew made the attempt in perfect weather conditions high up in the sky above Austria.
The two hot air balloons used were placed at a height of over 1,500 metres, with one used as an anchor for the swing and another from which the divers jumped.
“The goal of the project Megaswing was to go mad with the balloons,” said one diver Dominik Roithmair.
“If you ever jumped of a swing you always imagined to jump forever.”
