A new Guinness World Record for paragliding with six people at once was set by a Russian team on Saturday. The six Siberian daredevils started from Mount Zelyonaya (Green Mountain). They are already famous for setting world skiing record in swim suits, and reached up to 70kph. The head of the group, Russian sportsman Aleksandr Orlov, chose five young women with which to hold the attempt, which was successful despite one of them losing both her skis during the flight and having to land on her stomach. Next time Orlov is planning to beat his own record with eight people.
