FXTM’s partner Valery Rozov performed world-record breaking base-jump

Skydiving and BASE-jump legend Valery Rozov, who teamed up with Cyprus-based FX broker FXTM earlier in July, has smashed a world-record. The 51-year-old daredevil jumped from Mount Cho Oyu, which is 7,700 meters (25,300ft) high , going even higher than his previous record-breaking jump from the Everest Massif (7220m) in 2013.


The common project is called #FXTMbasejump and Rozov admits that the jump from Mount Cho Oyu had been his dream and goal for the past three years. It takes a lot of strength, effort and guts to climb the world’s sixth tallest mountain, let alone leaping from its south-west wall using a wingsuit.

 


After a minute and a half of pure freefall, Rozov opened his parachute and kept flying for another two minutes before landing safely in the snow, at 6,000 meters above sea level.


‘This journey has been a fantastic experience from start to finish. I am very grateful to FXTM for its ongoing support in this project, and for giving us both the opportunity to show the world that if you want to achieve something great you need to push yourself and not give up,” Rozov said.


BASE jumping is an activity that employs an initially packed parachute to jump from fixed objects. It grew out of skydiving and gained popularity through many action movies, but is considered far more dangerous, because it is performed at a much lower altitude.


Commenting on the finale of #FXTMbasejump project, FXTM’s CEO, Olga Rybalkina, said: “We are extremely proud of Valery Rozov for this great milestone in his career and for achieving that as a part of #FXTMbasejump project. We are honored at the opportunity to support Valery, and to prove that by having a goal, gaining the proper training, understanding and managing the risk effectively you have the potential to achieve great things.”


FXTM is regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), which allows it to provide its services in all EU countries. The broker offers trading in more than 100 instruments, including forex, spot metals, and CFDs on stocks, commodities, and exchange traded fund (ETFs). It serves retail and institutional clients alike and supports MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and MetaTrader 5 (MT5) trading platforms.
