A man in the United States of America has completed an unusual world record.

Rian Kanouff, from Nebraska, set a new world record by completing 60 skydiving jumps in 24 hours. He was dressed in nothing but his safety equipment.

Kanouff contacted the Guinness World Records about setting the record for most naked skydiving jumps in 24 hours, but found there was no category. They said he could create the new record category if he performed at least 25 jumps in the time period.

Kanouff said its an funny tradition for skydivers to perform their 100th jump in the nude, and he came up with the idea to set the naked skydiving world record. He used this opportunity to raise money for a mental health charity after the recent death of a friend.

Kanouff ended his attempt with 60 completed naked jumps over Weeping Water, Nebraska.

Fortunately there were no photos of the event!
