Francois-Marie Dibon, from Paris, today broke the world record for the most bungee jumps in 24-hours by jumping off a bridge in Scotland 765 times.

His achievement smashed the previous record of 430 jumps set in New Zealand in 2017.

“I feel like my brain thinks that it’s still jumping.”

– Francois-Marie Dibon told the PA News Agency after finishing

The 44-year-old began his quest jumping from the Garry Bridge in Perthshire at 10:10 am Tuesday morning. By 10:30 pm he had already beaten the world record but continued to jump for the next 12-hours.

Each jump comprised a 131-foot plummet to the tree-lined gorge of the River Garry. A crew of 15 was on hand to winch him back to the platform via a special mechanical system. On average, he jumped every 113-seconds.

Mr. Dibon, who overcame a fear of heights before his first bungee jump eleven years ago, had been planning the record attempt for five years and had been training for the last few months.

Throughout the 24-hours he stopped briefly only to eat candy and take occasional sips of water, and one lunch of ham and rice.
