UAE: 106 bungee jumps in 14 hours ... and counting - New Guinness Record set

Dubai resident Colin Phillips set a new Guinness World Record on Friday morning, after completing 106 bungee jumps in 14 hours - the highest number of bungee jumps ever completed within 24 hours.

The record-breaking event was closely monitored by Guinness World Record officials, who took down details ranging from the crane size to the cord length, making sure all aspects met their standards.

Phillips, who plans to complete 200 jumps by the end of the 24-hour period, said that breaking the record was a boyhood dream of his and that he consider Dubai and the UAE his home.

The previous world record holder was South African Kevin Scott Huntley, who jumped 105 times in 24 hours in 2011.
