Extreme sports are for people who love adventures with high level of inherent danger. It differs with traditional sports in terms of the risks involve due to the number of uncontrollable environmental variables and conditions. A poorly executed activity could result to serious physical harm to the athlete.
Wingsuit Flying or wingsuiting is an extreme sport that was first developed in the late 1990s. In this activity, the participant wears a “birdman suit,” a highly specialized gear that enables the human body to fly horizontally. The wingsuit flight normally ends by deploying a parachute.
This video was shared by extreme sports athlete Graham Dickinson. In this footage, Dickinson throw himself off the cliff in a popular skiing region in south east France. He was tailed by a second jumper and a fellow wingsuiter named Dario Zanon, who used a GoPro Hero 3 camera to document Dickinson’s entire fall and how he barrels past the mountains.
