July 9 Danny Way is the first person to
jump across the Great Wall of China
without any motorized aid.

According to his sponsor-
Quiksilver- Way completed the stunt by
rolling down a huge ramp at nearly 50
miles an hour.

He blew the first landing, but made
the next three attempts- even adding
some 360-degree spins.

Although Way already held
skateboarding's height and distance
jump records, he says the sixty-one
foot jump had his heart pounding. (END VO) (END VO)
