This man just broke the ski jumping world record

Peter Prevc set a new ski jumping world record at the FIS Ski Flying World Cup in Vikersund, Norway on Saturday. The Slovenian won the event with a jump of 250 metres (820 feet), beating the previous 246.5 metre record set by Norway's Johan Remen Evensen in 2011.

After his jump, Prevc said: "The speed and the position was perfect, then I just landed. Right now it's hard to describe my feelings, it will probably take a few days. It's always great to jump far. This win today and the world record is my biggest success so far."
