Ken Stornes did the impossible. He broke the somersault record after diving from a 40.5-metre mountain into the icy waters of the Styrn River in Norway.
Before making the jump, the Norwegian perched on a platform placed on a mountain, threw a rock to check and calculate the fall and break the surface tension of the water. Then he took the plunge.
On his social networks, precisely on his Instagram account, the 'Last Viking' - as he is called - wrote: "New world record, 40.5 meters. Once again we return the somersault record to Norway, where it belongs. It's been crazy!"
