IS BUMGY JUMP ?
jumping is an adventure activity in which a person jumps
off from a high place with one end of an rubber
cord attached to his/her ankles and the other
end tied to the jumping-off point. When the person
jumps, the cord will stretch to take up the energy
of the fall, then the jumper will fly upwards
as the cord snaps back. The jumper oscillates
up and down until the initial energy of the jump
OF BUNGY JUMP ?
In the 1950s David Attenborough and a BBC film
crew had brought back footage of the "land
divers" of Pentecost Island in Vanuatu, young
men who jumped from tall wooden platforms with
vines tied to their ankles as a test of courage.
This film inspired Chris Baker of Bristol, England
to use elastic rope in a kind of urban vine jumping.
The first modern bungy jump was made on 1 April
1979 from the 250ft Clifton Suspension Bridge
in Bristol, and was made by four members of the
Dangerous Sports Club. The jumpers, led by David
Kirke, were arrested shortly after, but continued
with jumps in the US from the Golden Gate and
Royal Gorge bridges, spreading the concept worldwide.
By 1982 they were jumping from mobile cranes and
hot air balloons, and putting on commercial displays.
The first operator of a commercial
bungee jumping concern was New Zealander, A J
Hackett, who made his first jump from Auckland's
Greenhithe Bridge in 1986. During the following
years Hackett performed a number of jumps from
bridges and other structures (including the Eiffel
Tower), building public interest in the sport.
