ULI EMANUELE – REAL EXTREME!

According to statistics, about 72% of athletes involved in base jumping (jumping from fixed objects) die. But this did not stop Uli Emanuele from becoming the “god” of wingsuit flights (flying in a suit resembling a flying squirrel). He made history by flying at a speed of 170 km / h through a small burning ring and a 2-meter gap in the rock.

Growing up period

The future athlete was born on October 23, 1985 in the Italian city of Bolzano, but lived in Pineto. There is no information about his family and his youth. It is only known that he was not the only extreme in the family, since Uli’s father loved to parachute. Continue reading

Long way to the top

How long has Chomolungma become a magnet for climbers? – Oddly enough, this sounds, but Dzhomolungme “old” is only 130 years old. More precisely, from the moment when “the mother of the gods of the earth” (the name is translated from Tibetan) was recognized as the highest peak of the planet. In the last century, methods for measuring heights were not so perfect, and until 1852 the Jomolungma was considered … only the fifteenth largest mountain. So it was listed on the maps: “Peak XV.”

Attempts to conquer Chomolungma, or Everest, began in 1921. But only in 1953 on May 29, New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherp Norgay Tenzing reached the highest point in the world – 8848 meters above sea level. Now there are more than a hundred conquerors of Everest. About the same as astronauts on Earth. This has its own symbolism. “Mountain space”, in principle, is as harsh and inaccessible as cosmic space … Continue reading

Race

Usually he is laconic. Prefers to listen carefully to the interlocutor. A few specific questions during the conversation and a short monologue – this is the usual style of conversation between the president of the International Centaur Association Grigory Nikishkin.

But today it is hard to recognize. For more than two hours now, he has been talking, stopping only occasionally in order to sip tea or listen to some extra urgent information on the radiotelephone.

A few days ago, Gregory returned from the Paris-Dakar rally, in which he participated as a full-fledged racer, and decided to share his conclusions and observations, in a word, to throw out a load of impressions. Suddenly I catch myself thinking: but with his heart he is still there – in a race, in the mountains of Spain, on the rocky plateaus of Morocco, in the sands of Mauritania and the savannahs of Senegal … Maybe what he says will seem interesting and instructive for those our compatriots, who, in a year, may want to repeat the risky experience of pioneers and go to the start of this prestigious race, having managed to avoid the annoying mistakes and mistakes made in the first “journey of amateurs.” So, a word to an eyewitness and a participant in the events … Continue reading
