An Olympic skier has set the Guinness world record for the longest rail grind ski. Sweden-based Jesper Tjader accomplished the feat on May 9 at Skistar Resort.

Guinness World Records (GWR) posted the video of his attempt on his YouTube channel. “The longest railgrind ski is 154.49 m (506 ft 10.3 in), achieved by Jesper Tjäder (Sweden), at Skistar Resort in Åre, Sweden, on May 9, 2022,” the video’s caption reads.

It has gained more than 11,000 views and 802 likes.

Tjader is a freestyle skier who has represented Sweden at the 2014, 2018 and 2022 Winter Olympics, GWR said in a release.

Users were impressed by the skier’s efforts.

“That balancing and surfing the railing was cool and all, but the drift right into his friend’s hug was so sick,” one user commented on the post.

“I want to congratulate him,” wrote a second user.

While another user wrote, “that’s really great.”

Recently a British man Steve Keeler from the United Kingdom set the Guinness World Record for the heaviest single-finger deadlift. With this he broke a 10-year record.

According to GWR, Mr Keeler is a martial artist by trade and made the record in Ashford, Kent, in February 2022.
