Hundreds of millions of viewers are not wrong: the craziest sport you'll ever see - voila! sport


Get to know the sport called death diving - crazy people jump from a great height, do stunts in the air and land on their stomachs. Don't try this at home

Death dive competition (from Tiktok)

This is without a doubt the craziest sport you don't know.

In Norway they actually know him well, but in recent days he has become a household name around the world, thanks to Tiktok - the social network that made him a viral phenomenon.

It's called a "death dive", and it's just as scary as it sounds.

The rules are quite simple: jump from a very high place (the world championship usually includes jumping from a height of 10-15 meters) into the water, you are allowed to do stunts in the air, but the most important thing is to land straight on your stomach.

Sound painful?

It also looks painful:

The person who turned this esoteric branch into a real internet trend is Esbjörg Nessia, a young Norwegian girl and reigning world champion, who garnered tens of millions of views on TikTok, and it's not hard to understand why: she jumped from a height of 24 meters, among other things, and came out unscathed.

In total, these jump videos have racked up over 250 million views in recent weeks.

In fact, it is not a new sport.

It was invented in Norway in the seventies, where the World Championship has also been held since 2008.

Nesia, whom we mentioned, won the last two championships, and also holds the world record, having jumped from a height of 24.8 meters.

For the men, the world record belongs to three different Norwegians, who jumped into the water from a height of 31.3 meters.


"The whole point is to have fun with your friends and do fun things - and never use a wetsuit," said Andres Roux, in a YouTube video in which he and his friends explain the rules of the industry:


Does that sound fun to you?

Want too?

So let's just be careful that most of those you saw here, in the videos above, are professional extreme athletes.

I mean - don't try this at home, friends.
