of the fifth Festival of Group Rope Jumping in the city of Tver, Russia, around 130 people decided to jump right into the record books.
now set a new world record for "rope jumping", where people jump off a bridge, attached to a safety cord.
In a very similar fashion to bungee jumping
, they all jumped off in unison and swung, to the cheers of the watching crowd.
The sport involves
jumping from a height attached to a rope, which causes the jumper to fall to the rope's end, and then swing backwards and forwards from the momentum gathered during the jump.
