This is one giant leap for man…
Last week, the PrettyGreen Sport Team were fortunate enough to spend a morning hanging out with Felix Baumgartner for Red Bull Stratos.
If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past two years you’ll know that Mr Baumgartner is attempting to break three world records this year by skydiving from the edge of space at 120,000 feet.
For a guy who will be falling at over 600mph and breaking the sound barrier with absolutely no idea as to what will happen to his body, Felix was a pretty chilled out guy. He spent the morning charming us with his good looks and space chat (as you do), and promised to come party with the PrettyGreen team after he’s completed the jump.
Team Sport are lucky enough to spend a lot of time working with some very influential athletes, but meeting Felix was out of this world (if you’ll excuse the pun). We don’t know exactly when the jump will happen yet, but what we can tell you is that it will be later on this year at some point, so watch this space… (Sorry, we’ll stop with the puns now).
