Will you do the same? Challenge!

Post by Salomé P. on Thu Oct 20, 2016 11:31 am

Hi today i wanted to introduce a subject about crazy mans and the Cliff Diving World Series.



They just simply throw themselves into the sea by jumping too much higher for me.
This is the world's most fearless competitors acrobatically descend which occurs in Japan from heights of up to 28 meters. Shocked
Like why are they doing it? It makes me remember of the same event in July in La Rochelle. I went there once. This is totally insane! Each time they are jumping they just can really hurt themselves. Anyone will be ever able to do same thing?




Here is the link where you can see good pictures of incredibles accrobatics! http://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/17/sport/gallery/cliff-diving-world-series-2016/index.html

There are some people who simply lack a fear gene that the rest of us have.

One of my son's best friends has this problem and he does crazy things as he doesn't have that same sensation of fear (intelligence) that the rest of us have. He is a great surfer, a crazy biker, a wonderful snowboarder and the kid who climbs the tree to get onto the building to jump off.

What's more amazing is that he is highly intelligent - just passed his masters and straight into a highly paid computer satellite job for the French in Germany - yet likely to kill himself before he reaches 30.

Well, I've seen 2 or 3 times this competitive event in La Rochelle and everytime I felt they are just crazy ! Of course, when we are a simple spectator it's just awesome and after ?

During the last or the second to last event, one of them has jumped on a bad angle of inclination and he has banged his head on the wall before to fall on the port... We didn't see it and we didn't understand why the staffs came next to him because he was some minutes under the water. Maybe they have alot of exercises and know the dangers but exclusing the adrenaline feelings or the satisfactions when they won a competition I don't succeed to understand how they can risk their life at the top of the cliffs or others... Maybe I will be so afraid to practise this kind of sport that's why I can't understand their real reasons. It's the same for racetrack.. How many accidents we count because of it ?!

I'm also very afraid of jumping but I can really understand people who like to do these kind of activities. I'm really impressed by them. I think jumping into the ocean must be an amazing feeling and you really feel alive...

For me who is afraid to jump in a swimming pool, I'm sorry to disappoint you Salomé but I won't make your challenge!! ahah
But actually it's super dangerous, we can see it by how jumpers are super straights (and muscled Wink !) when they enter in the water. I don’t know how many accidents happened but it’s really complicate to do for us, humble mortal humans.
