BASE Year End Review
Last year really had it all!
World-renowned Russian BASE jumping and skydiving legend, Valery Rozov, has announced an exciting partnership with global award-winning forex broker, FXTM. Rozov will be embarking on a series of unique jumps at a number of locations around the world and will receive support from FXTM throughout, in a journey called the #FXTMbasejump project.
With over 11,000 jumps and skydives, Rozov has been a World Champion (1999, 2002, 2003), European Champion and X Games champion in skysurfing in 1998. He was the first man to BASE jump from Shivling and Elbrus, and the first person to free-fall into a volcano (Mutnovskiy, Russia). In 2013, he redefined limits once again when he broke the record for the world's highest BASE jump – from Everest Massif (7220m). He was on the world record 400-way formation and the 100-way wingsuit formation. The Russian is looking to expand this list by adding more never-before seen jumps in other corners of the world such as Hong Kong, Nigeria and Indonesia.
Rozov said: “The need to push your limits is essential for success, both in the world of extreme sports and financial business, which is why FXTM is the perfect partner for my latest project. FXTM’s commitment to going beyond what is expected and seeking cutting-edge solutions is in line with my approach to BASE jumping. Working together on #FXTMbasejump is going to be a great experience.]“.
Olga Rybalkina, CEO of ForexTime Ltd commented, “FXTM and Valery share a mutual passion for redefining existing standards… We want this partnership to service as inspiration for our traders to take their experience to greater heights”.
