Paraglider Horacio Llorens beats the Infinity Tumbling World Record, with 568 consecutive loops over the Mayan ruins of Takalik Abaj, Guatemala. Infinity tumbling is the most difficult aerobatic paragliding maneuver where the pilot goes over the vertical line of the paraglide sail in consecutive loops. The pilot has to face up to 6G in every rotation. Llorens, a four-time aerobatic paragliding World Champion completed 568 loops after jumping from a helicopter at 19,700 feet.
