Heroes Extreme World Championships

Introduction :

Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships Introduction

Everyone loves a hero. Even as children, we dream of becoming known as a hero, and

saving that damsel in distress, and the world from those who seek to destroy it. This

desire is built into us all. We are inclined to believe that we are much more than the

natural try to convince us that we are. There is an inner strength and ability only left to

be discovered, and every so often we participate in events that allow us to explore this

innate possibility.

That is why the Olympics have been exciting people for generations, encouraging them

to unite as one and cheer on their country’s finest sportsmen. The Heroes Extreme

Sport World Championships will be a new kind of Olympics for extreme and more unusual

sports. The Olympics are breath taking and amazing already, but just imagine if the concept

was taken further with the heart stopping danger and skill of extreme sports!

This book is presenting the exciting proposal of a new and very exhilarating new sporting

event that will appeal to the masses, inclusive of the proposed venue it would take place

in and give interesting and informative facts about the sports that one would participate

in.

This idea is inspired from the comic book and film “Light Man” as he hosts his own World

Championships for Heroes in the fictional story that is already a graphics novel, with

infinite possibilities. Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships is making this fantasy

into reality and will be a ground breaking event sure to revolutionize sports and comic

book culture and unite the world in a new way. It will be a fantastic investment opportunity

and a big promotion for sports and the entertainment industry worldwide.


Not only this, but the Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships takes on a completely

new twist for a sporting event. It will bring the totally unique concept of combining

comic book culture and film fantasy superheroes with real life sport champions! Just

imagine the Olympics combined with a mega comic con with the people attending

dressed as their favourite super hero.

The specially built home arena called the “Infinity Light Arena” will be a magnificent

versatile sports venue but it will also have a section where people can buy and sell

comics, DVDs, videogames and watch their favourite superhero films on the big

screen. People can enjoy the best of the most exciting and thrilling sports on the planet

while also indulge in comic and film fandom! The message of how the everyday person

can become a hero will be the central theme of the event to positively encourage a new

generation.

Like the Olympics, this amazing sporting event will be intended to continue every four

years with both winter and summer events. The goal is to start the qualification program

from 2016 and the grand opening of the actual event taking place in early spring

of 2020. This first big event will take place mostly in California and Las Vegas, where

the Infinity Light Arena will be based. As many events as possible will take place inside

the Infinity Light Arena however, due to the nature of some of the extreme sports,

there will be different locations needed, for example cliff diving and sailing.

For the first few Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships, the event will stay at

the Infinity light Arena but in the future, the location will change for both the summer

and winter games just like the Olympics so it can be fairly represented throughout the

world.

Both the winter and summer events will have 29 specially selected disciplines each.

The Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships will take place for 29 days, one day

for each discipline with world coverage 24/7.

There are some absolutely stunning medals carefully crafted and designed to the highest

standard for the winners of the 29 categories of the Heroes Extreme Sport World

Championships. Like in the Olympics, there are the gold, silver and bronze metals representing

first, second and third place for each category.

The metals are attached to beautiful red and white stripped ribbons with white stars

imprinted on the red outer edge. Each metal is shaped in a symbolic star with 3D beveled

edges coming up in the centre with a circle in the centre showing the number of the

place, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Around the number is inscribed “Heroes Extreme Sport World

Championships “ in a symbolically crafted logo that is then repeated around the outer

edges of the circle and the star shape.

The Logo is a golden hue, the colour of light and the heroes. It is in a circular shape to

represent eternity of life, love and light. There is an outer circle and inner circle. Between

the two circles is the title “Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships” and the

abbreviation H.E.S.W.C. Inside the inner circle in the centre there are five golden stars,

two rows with 3 on top and two on bottom. The stars represent not only the Olympic

rings but the five stars closest to the Earth, the Sun, Proxima Centauri, Alpha Centauri

A, Alpha Centauri B, and Barnard’s Star Nr 3.

The opening ceremony itself will be a dazzling event to rival any previous opening ceremonies

before. Three special celebrity athletes will take the role of Light Man, Light

Woman and AH God of the Heroes, dressed in the costumes of the heroes that inspired

this amazing event. They will triumphantly emerge, carrying a torch like in the Olympics

and light a massive cauldron full of fire. The torch will be a mixture of silver and gold

coloured metals. It will have a gold colour symbolic wings projected from the silver cup

that will hold the flame. Down the centre of the handle to say “Heroes Extreme Sport

World Championships.” The torch will be a symbol of light, and love.

The opening ceremony will begin with an official theme song, “The Heroes Song” created

especially for the event and sung by world famous musicians to be decided. The

athletes will come out as the heroes of the nations, dressed in superhero costumes and

parade in the main stadium, waving their country’s flag. The sound of Tibetan gongs will

ceremoniously ring and resonate throughout the building.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

A: My name is Jorge Gomez. I am from Madrid, Spain and I live in Madrid and in Luxembourg

together with my Fiancé since 2013. I started riding BMX as a young kid of 7 years

old, when I got my first BMX for Christmas from my father. I am forever grateful for my

Dad’s gift to me.

My first competition ever was in Portugal in 1998, at the age of 17, expert classification. I

won that contest and I decided to quit secondary school and focus on riding and in competitions.

In 2001, I became a “Professsional BMX Flatland Rider”, at the age of 20, and

started to travel the world for world class competitions. At that time, I was the youngest

rider in “pro class”, and without any sponsors. Competing was my own real video game,

saving up on scoring money in order to go to the next round/competition, to train myself

on how it is to compete professionally until I win consistently. In 2003, I signed for

Red Bull, as the first ever Red Bull BMX Flatland Athlete, as I won the Red Bull Circle of

Balance in 2002, and in 2007 and then again in 2012. In 2010, I became the official World

Champion and then again now in 2015. In 2013 I won the most prestigious BMX Global

Awards in the US, as the “Number One Flatlander of the Year 2013”, and then again now

in 2015. I started my own BMX Flatland Bicycle company “KUOPPA GOMEZ BIKES” in 2007,

I paused that for some years, and now for 2016 it is officially back in business ready to

roll. ;)

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

A: I started riding BMX Flatland at the age of 14 when I saw some cool guys doing flat

tricks on their BMX bikes in the central park of Madrid, “El parque de Retiro”, and after

having seen the latest Nicole Kidman movie, “BMX Bandits”. Ever since the I am hooked to

BMX Flatland. What I still today love is the entire lifestyle that come with it, the people you

meet, the places you see, the pressure and anxiety of competing and the amazing opportunities

you get. I feel truly blessed for what I am able to create for myself by following

my passion and dream.


3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

A: My daily routine differs from week to week as I have a rather busy traveling schedule,

for competitions, show-case booking and other appearance for sponsors and media. But,

on an average basis I practice everyday, except for Sundays - my day with my fiancée

and family, 3-5 hours each training session. In summer time and whenever the weather

allows it, as I live in Luxembourg, I practice outdoors at my favourite spot at the National

Concert Hall “Philharmonie”, where the

www.vikigomez.com 2

ground is flat and smooth and the landscape is monumental. And during winter times and

rainy days, I drive 30 minutes over the border of Luxembourg to Trier, Germany, to my

friend Axel’s indoor Bike Park “Zuppermarkt”, a hall for youth activities and young sport

arts (BMX and Skate). I consider myself very fortunate to have these two amazing training

locations as it can be rather difficult for us “non-organized sports” to have facilities for

practice. I would love to see this change in the future, for the sake of the sport and motivation.

In order to be in the top of a sport, you need discipline, not only in training but in outer

aspects too, in terms of nutrition, sleep, mental training and other types of sources for

your daily motivation and inspiration. For example, on my days off training, I like to spend

time in things that inspire me, such as watching films, arts, cooking, family and even

other type of sportive activities such as gokarting.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

A: Individuality, originality and that you are your own boss to decide your own limits. What

differs between other disciplines, is that each Pro rider differs from the other and this is

what counts by the judges in a pro world class competition and this is what motivates me.

Sometimes it has its disadvantages, but for the most perks, if you are fully dedicated and

true to yourself. This is what pushes me to progress, and I can only advice a rider to do

his own! Fashion is universal, style is personal.


5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

A: It is actually very scary everyday to go out there and try hard and new tricks. I play

with the fear and I overcome it slowly with prudence and courage.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

A: Funniest was to be practicing back stage for a show at the Laureus in Abu Dhabi and

meet Morgan Freeman. He came up to me, cause as it seemed, he likes BMX Flatland and

it felt as if I knew him from always. He is an amazing person and if God has someone who

might look alike it is definitely Morgan Freeman!

Weirdest must be that time when a fan came up to me, while practicing outside of my hotel

in Shanghai, and went on how much he loved me and looked up to me, only later finding

out that he thought I was Danny McKascill!! :p (LOL) I hope he didn’t get too disappointed..

hehe.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

A: Fortunately no! However, every Flatland rider will go through mental breakdowns from

time to time, due to the pressure of being original and progressing with new tricks infor

bigger competitions, as well as to represent sponsors. Other than that, I have dislocated

my right shoulder, suffered a tennis elbow/tendinitis for a longer period, suffered from

low-back problems, and minor knee problems with the inner liquids. I feel blessed for all

of this, as it makes you who you are, stronger, as well as learning from mistakes that

later gives you the experience of total control and manoeuvre. This goes for multiple

disciplines and other occupational choices.


8. Who is your real life hero and why?

A: So many and I must say myself. And the reason is because I know I have the capacity

and power to make dreams to become true, my own. I believe everyone should work hard

to later being able to look up to themselves, respect themselves and see themselves as

the hero they once wanted to become.

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

A: Dragon Ball. Both the comic and the TV series. The reason is because the philosophy

behind it is very healthy and motivating. Always going to the next level but being true to

yourself and your surroundings.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

A: Very important, in order to be globally recognised as a “sport”, as well as making

a sports your profession we all need to be able to live from it financially. Partners and

sponsors are therefore a key aspect as well. Becoming commercial does not mean losing

traditions or spirits of a sports. I wish to see my sports recognised worldwide and I wish

to see that all the riders who put so much hard work and dedication are rewarded for

that. Our sport, Flatland deserves that!

RIDE ON!

Interview Questions for the Heroes World Championship art

book:

Gary Hunt. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Cliff Diving

Name: Gary Hunt

Weight: 67kg

Height: 5’9”

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I started diving at the age of 9, and competed 10m and 10m synchro until the age of 22,

my biggest accomplishment was third place in the commonwealth games in 2006 in the

10m synchro event.

I moved to high diving in 2006 and started competing in 2007, my accomplishments

include 5 times Red Bull world series champion, current world champion.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

I love the challenges that come with the sport of diving. Every dive is an emotional roller

coaster. There’s such a difference in the way I feel before a high dive (all the nerves

and the stress), the way I feel during the dive (total freedom and control) and the sensation

after a successful dive.

3. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

Training includes lots of diving from the poolside, 1m, 3m, 5m, 7m, and 10m, plus lots of

strength and conditioning, some trampolining and dry land somersaults.


4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

The best thing about the sport is travelling to wonderful locations around the world. The

difference of high diving compared to other sports is the relationship between the athletes.

We often travel without coaches and so we help each other out. No one wants to

see anyone else get hurt so we are all happy when we get through a competition successfully.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

The hardest dive that I currently compete was a big test for me, nobody had ever performed

the dive before so it was a real leap of faith.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

During a dive that I did in Boston there was an enormous bolt of lightening that struck

just as I took off from the platform. It was too late to stop so I just kept my nerve and

finished the dive.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

I’ve ended up in hospital after a high dive. I was performing a front quad with 2.5 twists

in Italy in 2010 and didn’t manage to fit all of the dive in before hitting the water. Luckily

I didn’t break any bones but I was really sore for about a month afterwards.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

My sporting hero is my friend Gavin Brown with whom I learnt to dive and who was an

incredibly talented diver. He always wanted to learn the crazier dives and inspired me

to do so also. He unfortunately died in a car accident just when I started in the sport of

cliff diving and so the memory I have of his skills and his love for the sport inspires me

to push myself to the limits.


9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

My favourite comic book hero has to be superman, he has the best set of superpowers.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I’m very happy to see extreme sports getting more and more attention. It’s the natural

progression for sports and it’s what get’s the public excited.

company, traveling around the world compite in the World Series Red Bull it was amazing.

In boston we have competition and I get 6th place, then the director of entertainment

of ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL, invite me me and my wife she is my couch to

do high diving shows in the biggest ship of the world OASIS OF THE SEAS AND ALLURE OF

THE SEAS,

relief is so extreme .

I do I lot of cardio, climbing to 27 meters it take a time and power, a lot of ledups in 10

meters and some from 17 when I work in the cruise ship, but to train from 27 meters is

not that easy place you can find, flex and always looking for the technic.

The mental part is really important because when you are at 27 meters your nature tell

you don’t jump you are afraid, but you have to be confident and secure that all what you

training will lead you safe and good execution.

4.-as a professional, what is the best thing about this sport?

Well the natural location where we jump is so inspire, you feel amazing to be in new places

from photoshop, traveling, meet a lot of people is amazing adventure, so many diferent

places that you love it, compite with the best of the best, challenge your fears, adrenaline

rush… im addicted.

This sport is so extreme about the others, is so dangerous if you don’t have experience,

this teach you tto be confident, because if you are not, one crash can cost you a lot….90

km per hour in 3 seconds…

5 what is the more scare part and how over come?

DO A NEW DIVE….. this is the more scare part….You can do hundreds of led ups from 10

meters, and jump a lots of times before , but when you prepare and do new dive, you

scare and feel like all the

preparation is not enough, your mind and fear betray you, then you have to relax, take a

time I just JUMP, let your body guide you he did it before.

When I did 3 twist 3 somersault back… I feel like the platform hold my feets, I can take of

and I just be positive and calm to let it happen.

As well when you get injury you scare to get the same how ever you have to work strong

for don’t get the same thing, try to cover that part that led you to the injury.


6. The more funny part?

I guess was one time when I jump from 27 meters and I feel something really wear happen

to my speedo, I try to go out and breath after jump, and I just notice that I don’t have

my speedo, I down and look for it, but I just don’t have it, the scuba divers say whats

happen? Are you get injury and then I say I lost my speedo he look under the water and

star to laught, he go deep in to the water and find it… it broke apart…. I don’t know how

happed, but I guess it does.

7. Have you injury?

Yes unffortunatly, after 2012 i star to have injuries, my groings and pelvis get really

bad… the recovery part was difficult and start to jump once again is very difficult get

confident and secure that is not gonna happen again… is complicated, you have to be in

shape all the time. As well mentally strong.

8.-In Diving??? DimitrySautin 3meters and 10 meters olimpic diver… the fact that he

jump super fast and don’t think about it is really impressive. The mental part… Wowwww!!!

9.Favory hero comic or movie?

I like so much superman, I have so many movies about him, when I was kid I try to buy

the famous comic of the dead of superman, and how the fight was in the magazine it was

epic, I read it so many times, but the fact that superman at the end he is more human

than alien, is the same in all the movies, I reallice that when we are about to jump all our

powers all our skills are very strong, our body is so strong and so delicate when we get

injury. Is amazing what our body can do.


10.- about other extreme sports???

Is amazing how new sport are evolve and became official,

Diving is amazing mental and physical, but to do high diving, is special, is something

that begging as hobby, something that you do because you like it became professional,

compite with others persons that love the hobby, same as other new sports, skateboarding,

bmx ( I use to do some tricks in the bike like jumping and now is official I still

have my old bike somewhere) street jumps dancing etc etc….i guess all of this star

because regular sport are full, and we looking to do something new something diferent

and that we love, every kid like to dance to do a bike to jump and sometimes our parents

cant offer to take us to a school and we do what we love to do and become really good

on that…. Persistence and practice is every day in our life to be beter and better.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and

how did you overcome it?

I never had many bad experiences with this sport . I started practicing a little older,

so always prevent me enough. however once I ended up suffering a very sharp fall in

which scraped a lot of parts of my body and I was quite wrong. That day I wondered

.

sport professionally?

This year in the last World Tour event two days before the event start we were me,

sports should have a larger event.

2014 Rumble at the ranch winner

2015 Kozakov IDF world cup winner,

So on so forth…. Lots of skating experience…

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

The thrill, the community, riding gravity and having that feeling of being free flying down

a hill on 4 wheels and a peace of wood.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

I find myself surfing, stand up paddle boarding and making it to the gym once a week or

so. I skate more than anything and that give me the opportunity to work on going faster

and taking better lines, as well as stay in shape!


4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

As a professional I find the best things in my sport to be the community that’s been created

over the years. You can practically go anywhere in the world that has paved roads

and find some local skaters bombing down them. Or feeling semi weightless letting gravity

slingshot you down mountain roads with friends from around the world all in the same

location for the same reason!

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

In our sport there are a few different things that could go wrong and fact is you can

try your hardest to save yourself from a fall but some falls are worse than others. At

speeds 50+ while on a peace of wood with 4 wheels and gravity propelling you down hill

with 3 or 5 other competitors all going for the podium spot things get intense. Getting

taken out again falling at speed is something you become numb to over time.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

Funniest things that has happened to me was probably winning my first world cup downhill

race fresh off all my sponsors and flying solo, the pun is that my old sponsor was the

title sponsor for the event.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

Injuries come and go but I will stay, in our sport it seems a lot of people have shoulder

issues; thankfully I do not and only deal with a bunk wrist time to time. I cant say I have

stayed away from the hospitals, Last year in Columbia I was taken out from behind,

slammed the hay bails and ended up with a chest contusion.


8. Who is your real life hero and why?

My real life hero is the every day Joe who is out there doing what he can to survive and

making ends meat, life rough at times and this one goes out to all the everyday people,

all the 9-5 people and supporters of skateboarding! Keep making the world go around.

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

I enjoyed reading batman comics back in the day.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I think it about time something like this happened. It is important to embrace these

new extreme sports that are emerging into our world and possibly pay respects to

them and their athletes. I know lots of people who devote there lives to sports that are

ganglier or more extreme than basketball or football knowing that it wont actually get

them any where further in life than there normal job. If the Olympics wont adapt to

these new sports and place them in that realm of athletic compotition than we have no

choice to do our own thing and boost out sports higher in the public eye!

Joao Pedro Resende Laporte Nogueira ( Pepe Laporte). Discipline: Heroes Extreme

Longboard Downhill

Joao Pedro Resende Laporte Nogueira ( Pepe Laporte), 18 years old, 71Kg, 1,77m from

Belo Horizonte, BRA.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I started skateboarding 4 years ago when I moved from Belo Horizonte downtown to another

neighborhood which were surrounded by good hills to skate. I had a friend which

used to skateboard downhills and he knew all the skaters around so he introduce me to

the skate community and helped me a lot on the skateboard skills.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

Since 4 years ago I’ve been asking myself why skateboard attracts me so much. I don’t

really know how to explain it, I can just feel it. Skateboard for me is much more than just

a hobby, it’s my life. What impresses me the most is how flexible the sport is, and how

much it allows you to grow inside of it. Skateboarding is really amazing and limitless!

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

Whatever you want to do in life, to be on the top, to be the best, you must work more

than everyone. Since I started skating I always wanted to be the best, so I’ve been always

working hard, skating everyday, working out everyday, learning from everything

trying to improve myself and skills.


4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

The best thing as a pro in the sport is that are able to skate everything, to travel

around the world, to meet amazing people, amazing places that you have never thought

you would be. It’s amazing and excites to keep on this path, to chase the dreams, to

make it happen.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

The most difficult thing is the limits you put inside your mind. Everything is in your

mind, you can be whatever you want to be, you just need to know how to control your

mind and how it’s powerful. After I started to get it I became another person and things

changed. The danger is so real, but the fear is a choice.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

It’s hard to say what was the funniest/ scariest thing I live while skateboarding. Every

time I go skateboarding funny and scary things happen. Guys crashing in front of you,

cars coming up the hill while you’re coming down. On racing the adrenaline you get is

a surreal thing and everything can happen while you are going down. Skateboarding is

unpredictable.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

I’ve never had any serious injuries before, just some scratches. Wherever I go to skate

I make sure everything on my feet is perfectly good. I like to skate fast but always safe.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

My real life hero is for sure my dad. I don’t have words to describe how he’s important

to me. I’m so proud and I feel blessed to have him as a dad, as a friend, always encouraging

me and supporting me in whatever I want to do . I love my hero.


9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

I really like to watch Dalua Downhill, it’s a downhill skateboarding movie from my buddy

Douglas Dalua. He’s been doing many things for downhill scene which a respect and

it’s a mirror for me.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I think it’s a dream. Extreme sports having them own world championships getting into

the Olympics it’s really amazing. I’ve dedicating myself so much to put this sport in the

place it deserves to be. I think downhill skateboarding has a huge potential to be a big

sport sponsored by big companies, media and important people behind. That’s the way

it is.

others?

Be able to ride my skateboard down the most amazing roads in the world, skate and

have fun with all my friends and compete in all 5 continents on some of the craziest

roads around. I think what sets this sport a part from everything else is that you are

able to compete in a high level with way less money than any other competitive racing

sport and also have an adrenalin rush like no other.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

Definitely the scariest and most difficult thing was the Teutonia race, it is the fastest

race hill in the world and has one of the worst pavements, it is really scary and challenging

to race there. I overcame my fear and kept going back every year until I was

finally became champion and had no more fear of the hill!

professionally?

Probably seeing my friends skate half naked down a race course with thousands of people

watching.

Not really, i’ve been lucky with that. I’ve only had lots of road rash and some sprains,

never had to get a surgery because of skating or nothing too serious.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

My grand father!! He thought me most things I know and was my best friend!! Unfortunately

he is not around us anymore.

9. Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why?

Batman, cause he is a real human being and does some crazy stuff!!

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I think that would be awesome, like everything in life evolves, such does the sports so I

think the Olympics are surpassed and we need more extreme and exciting sports to get a

chance to be showcased for the whole world to see and became a standard when talking

about sports in general!

Downhill

Interview questions

Name: Emily Pross (nickname: “The Prossecutor” )

Age: 19

Weight: 150lbs

Height: 5ft 5in

Title & Accomplishments:

2015 International Downhill Federation (IDF) Women’s World Champion

Finished 25th overall worldwide in the Open/Men’s Division

Finished 10th Overall in North in Open/Men’s Division in North America

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I was born and raised in New Jersey. I got into downhill skateboarding by mistake. I actually

wanted to do street luge, but at the time I didn’t know what it was called, so I googled

“longboard that you lay on” and longboarding/downhill skateboarding came up on the

Google search. I didn’t get serious about downhill skateboarding until I was 16 years

old, and for a year I was fully into the freestyle aspect of downhill skating. It was until I

turned 17 that I started to start to race skateboards and get fully into competitive racing.

2014 was the first year I competed in the IDF. I ended up falling in love with the competiveness

of competing on the world circuit. With hard work and determination, I managed

to become women’s world champion my 2nd year in the IDF. I’m now chasing my goal

to win a race in the open/men’s division in downhill skateboarding, and the closest I’ve

come to doing that is 6th place. I’m also taking online college classes, while and skating,

and working toward getting my degree in Marketing and Communications.


2.What attracted me to the sport?

I got into the sport by mistake. I used to binge watch the Extreme Goofy Movie

when I was little, and when they competed in the XGames they had a little snipit of them

racing street luge. I thought that was the was coolest thing ever. After I broke my cheap

Walmart skateboard, I decided I wanted to get a street luge. At the time I had no idea

what it was called because I was going by my memories of when I was 4 years old. I

googled “longboard that you lay on” and longboarding/downhill skateboarding came up

on the Google search. I told my parents that’s what I wanted, and after they bought I

realized that that wasn’t what I wanted. I didn’t want them to waste their money, so I bit

my tougue and went with it. I ended up liking in longrun.

3. What do I have to do to train for this sport?

A lot of people don’t train, as in going to the gym, for this sport like they do other

sports. I’m one of the few who actually do train, and it shows. I go to the gym every

single day and train my heart out, lifting weights with some cardio on the side. Then of

course I also practice my skateboarding by bombing hills, but I don’t really consider that

training because its so fun, you don’t realize it’s just practice.

4. Funniest thing thst happened to me while in the sport?

Not to sure I had many of these moments. I guess one of the funniest/ most interesting I

has was someone losing their wheel mid race heat.

5.. Have you ever had a serious injury?

Yes this past year, two days before a race I fell at about 50mph and went right

into a drainage ditch full of rocks. I banged up back real good, and I think I sprained my

diaphragm because I wasn’t able to breath correctly for a few days. I paid a lot of to go

out and race, and I was not letting the injury slow me down. So even though I couldn’t

function much at all without extreme back pain shooting up and down my spine, I still

raced. In fact I ended up finishing 1st in women’s and 16th in the Open/Men’s division at

the 2015 Whistler Longboard Festival.


6. Who is your real life hero?

I wouldn’t say I have a real life “hero” I don’t really view the people I look up to

as “hero’s” there just someone who I admire, and who’s attitude and personality I want

to emulate. I really am a big fan of Jillian Michaels. Since I’m big into fitness and eating

healthy, I like the fact that she is a personal trainer. While I was little I loved watching

her hardcore, bad ass never give up attitude. I was just amazed watching her on the TV

show Biggest Loser when it first aired on TV. And her never give up attitude was what I

really wanted to emulate.

7.. Who is your favorite comic book hero?

There not a hero, but I really like the Joker, which is why I painted my helmet like

that. Plus I think the Joker is really awesome looking. Aside from that, my favorite hero

is wonder women. I just appreciate that fact comics can strong female hero, who can

kick butt, but still be feminine.

8.. What do you think about extreme sports being the Olympics?

Extreme sports being in the Olympics would be great, especially from a marketing

standpoint. The public loves seeing sports with a danger factor, and with new media

technology the broadcasting channels have the opportunity to really make all extreme

sports go main stream in the Olympics. There isn’t much of a showing of extreme sports

in the Summer Olympics, and I really wish the committee would consider putting Downhill

Skateboarding in the Olympics because its tight action packed racing. That has both an

excite and danger factor to captivate the audience. Its also easier to judge than regular

street, vert ramp skateboarding because you don’t have the factor of judges being biased.

In downhill who ever crosses the line first wins, simple and easy to score.

Hi! I’m Rachel or ‘Bagels’. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, skating fell into

my lap and I never looked back. The Malibu hills have always been the friendliest neighbor,

offering many incredibly beautiful roads to practice my passion and rage down at

high speeds. Going fast is what I love to do and I love to do it everywhere that I possibly

can. Experiencing the world through my skateboard is something of a dream, and I am

living it. I love it to lengths unmeasurable. Downhill is something that makes my heart

race and extends the largest smiles across my face. Ask anyone and they will tell you

that when you mix me and my board with a gnarly mountain road, beautiful nature, endless

shenanigans, amazing people, and adventure that I am one of the happiest people

around. Through my passion and dedication for downhill skateboarding, I have traveled

to 16+ countries across 6 continents. I have participated in numerous races and events

The community. Everyone that is doing this sport is in it for their own passion. It is not

something you can fake or imitate, you do it because you love it. The people I have met

through this sport are the most lovely, friendly people. We are instantly family if we

share in this wonderful passion. It is amazing. I have traveled the world and met the

most amazing people thanks to a plank of wood.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

Injuries are definitely a constant fear in the back of my head. Yes, the occasional scrape

or bruise is quite common, but those are nothing compared to the feeling of happiness

and love. I have pushed through many little injuries to large injuries; from road rash,

to broken bones, to getting run over by a car. If you love to do something, the fear of

injury will not stop you. With skating, like with everything, once you push past the initial

fears, anything is possible.


6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

Oh there are sooo many stories to tell! I cannot just pin down one!

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

Yes. This year I broke my leg in the Philippines. It was a tough break and right before a

race. Being in The Philippines, I did not receive proper medical attention for a bit after

the initial injury. I had to hop around for a couple days without crutches or a cast. It was

set incorrectly once I made it to a hospital in the city. Luckily, the initial injury sustained

proved to be on the more minimal side and once I made it home to LA it was all dandy and

took only a couple weeks to heal before I was back on my board in my local hills.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

I don’t really have any heroes, per-say. What I look at most in people is how they enjoy

their lives while experiencing their passions. My favorite humans are the ones that have

a raw smile, extended from ear to ear, due to who they are around of what they are doing.

It is quite easy to find that with skating, as it brings out passion in anyone who keeps

at it. I look up to anyone who is enjoying their time on this planet, creating and radiating

love.

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

I do not follow comics, TV, or film closely enough.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I think it would be phenomenal. I also think it is crucial. Without the proper media and

exposure, some sports cease to expand and encourage new involvement. With proper

competition and media, the sports can and will flourish. Once the world is more aware

of a sport more newcomers will jump on board, the community will expand, safety will be

more widely influenced, and happiness levels will increase. It is such an amazing feat to

overcome fear and fall in love with something you never thought possible.

Interview Questions for the Heroes World Championship art book:

Name: Dénes Katona

Age: 29

Weight: 75kg

Height: 185cm

Title and accomplishments:

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I was born in Sátoraljaújhely, Hungary in 1987. Started BMX Flatland when I was 15

years old so I already spent half of my life on BMX. I graduated at the University of

Debrecen in 2011 as a technological manager, but I have never worked in this field.

Actually I am a freelancer, trying to find my way.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

Firstly one of my friends started flatland and then I followed him in this sport. By that

time I started to feel what freestyle was.There was a pretty good flatland scene in my

small hometown at that time, so it was easy to learn the first tircks, combos and I had

awesome sessions every day.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

I still live in my hometown, which is a pretty small town. Riding to my spot takes less

than 5 mins.I usually ride 4-5 times a week for about 2-3 hours.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

Respect, humility, recognition


6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this

sport professionally?

It is weird but not funny, it’s rather surprising. When I rode at the Circle Cow

contest in Servon, France in 2010, a couple of riders made a banner with my

name „Denis” and supported me until my run. That was dope, big up to them!

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

Not really, but one time I was too negligent and my legs took the bruising blows, I

had to have a surgery because of this.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

Ferenc Puskás the most famous Hungarian and one of the best football players

in History. All of his career is a succes story, it’s like a Hollywood movie. He

remained a modest Hungarian man besides his international success and career.

He is a national hero for the Hungarian people.

9. Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why?

Not really, but I have a lot of favourite movies based on true stories. One of my

favorite is The Cinderella man, a story about James J Braddock.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own

world championships like the Olympics?

Olympics is good for the sports, but not for the lifestyle. The Olympics support

and cover the athletes and give more respect for them. But on the other hand

the roots of all evil, money is killing the soul of the lifestyle. Anyway I think there

are more advantages on the Olympics’ side but it is always hard to find the golden

mean.

Animal Planet, Discovery, Nat Geo, 60 Minutes, SparkShopMedia, Djarum,

Sony, LG, etc. Im also an Eagle Scout, Motivational Speaker, Amateur

Musician, and never broken a bone.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I was born in California and raised in the hills of western Marin

County. I moved once as a little kid and ended up in a sub-urban town, very

close to much more rural areas. The Pacific Ocean, Mt. Tamalpais, and

Giant Redwood trees were all directly within my reach during my adolescent

years. I was always athletic, participated in many sports, and ventured

into the outdoors-- usually on mountain bike. Then usually by car to surf

in my high school years. Besides friends, school, and sports, I was also a

Scout for years. My Mother and especially My father really helped me

motivate through scouting. I attribute his persistence and

the opportunities provided by the Scouts to have provided me a

great platform to the take my life in the direction of adventure sporting.

My parents basically had only a few rules: 1. Finish College 2. Come Home

for Christmas, and the newly added rule due to my lifestyle choices 3. Die

After They do. Those rules are only prefaced by “Do what you love, and

follow your heart.”


2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?*

What originally attracted me to the sport was that you could do it

anywhere-- it just took some creative rigging sometimes... and I loved

that! I was also attracted to the counter culture attitude associated to

slackline passed down from dirt bag rock climbers of Yosemite. “Dirt bag,”

is not a condescending title though, rather a praise to those who don’t

fiend for fame, notoriety, or luxury; but rather freedom instead. I loved

the lifestyle of going outside and seeing beautiful places, hiking and

camping, and slacklining just gave me an excuse to do it more. I found

quickly that I needed help. So I learned to start loving to teach

slackline as well. The more I taught, the more friends would want to come

out to some random mountain, hike uphill for an hour and a half, just to

rig a 60ft line between some big boulders. Teaching slackline is still one

of the most amazing attractions to me in this sport, but back about that

time when YouTube became a thing, I was given the ability to show slackline

internationally at the press of a button. So i started making movies. Once

I started uploading videos, showing the world what you could do with a

slackline, and the lifestyle behind it, I stumbled upon what I called the

“Slacklife.” And that, became my life, my sport, a lifestyle, and a

religion.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

Slackline requires basic physical strength and demands mental stamina.

When walking you are forced to intensely focus your mind on balance and

breathing for extended periods of time in environments of incredible

exposure. Sometimes this attributes to shedding all other thoughts. This

is where there is a similarity between slackline and meditation comes into

play. Regardless, ALL of these requirements are easily trained by

Slacklining a lot. But, you have to learn how to rig. If you can’t install

a slackline, you can’t walk a slackline. So you have to train your

knowledge of ropes, webbing, hardware, angles, tension, working loads,

shock loading, etc, etc.


Once you can rig slacklines you realize how many

different styles of rigging, walking, bouncing, and trickling there are and

each artisanship of slackline demands unique skills-- only developed

through repeated education, practice, and failure. So to answer you

more concisely, the only way to train and prepare for slackline, is to

prepare slacklines and train on as many as you can.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what

sets it apart from others? *

Other than my giant blonde white guy afro, and appearing to do

everything “Sketchily,” I would say that it is my creativity that sets me

apart from other professionals. My ability to see a highline, or a trick,

and do it. But, I not just a slackliner, or trick liner or highliner, or

a base jumper, climber, etc, etc, I am a dreamer! I love coming up with

ideas, drawing them on a piece of paper, making them happen, and inviting

my friends! Then I love showing the world and giving them the ability to

want to dream for themselves~ I love helping create shared experiences--

and that love for creation is what sets me apart from other professional.

I am a seer and a doer, and I keep having visions of my dreams, and I live

everyday of my life making them come true. Being able to develop ideas

that combine communities and bring people closer together to improve their

own lives... thats just a diamond in the rough!~ But, please god, I hope I

can live like this forever! :D

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this

port and how did you overcome it?

The most terrifying and difficult thing to face in this

Sport/Lifestyle is the brutal reality of my own mortality. Thinking of my

own death is crazy! It gives me goose bumps, increases my heart rate, and

makes my thoughts race with anxiety. When you are essentially playing with

death on a very constant basis, it wears on your relationship with your

loved ones, your friends, your family; and you have to deal with, fair, but

overwhelming resistance to your lifestyle.


Smiling and turning the other

cheek seems to be the best strategy, but in turn this wears on your

relationship with yourself. Am I crazy? Do I have a death wish? How am I

still even alive!? Let me put it to you this way, have you ever been asked

the question, “What would you do if you only had a month to live?” Well,

Ive dealt with that question every month for over 5 years. And when you

have a relationship with death like that, seeing people die, loosing

friends, seeing brutal injuries, it really makes how you live your life

everyday different from the people around you. And that is difficult, and

terrifying.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst

doing this sport professionally?

I would say the weirdest thing that has ever happened to me manifested

from the 2010 G.G.B.Y. (Gobble Gobble Bitches Yeah!~) November highline

meeting in Moab UT. I was in the midst of training the free solo world

record and I was training a lot. I was ahead of schedule for free soloing

a highline once a week, and I had been doing this for over a year at that

point. When you are training to free solo a line you can stair step

yourself up mentally to the solo. You can do this by tying in the leash to

your waist(called a swami) with no harness on. This gives you a higher

consequence if you fall and miss the line, but not death just pain. Also,

you usually don’t fall, but the fear of the idea of falling is what you

are trying to train to combat. After you tie it to your waist, you can tie

it to your ankle-- this is called a ball and chain. Even more consequence

of a fall, but not death. And after your ankle I thought... you can tie it

to your cock and balls. So I did. I got naked at the festival, tied my

x-girlfriends leash to my balls (not purposefully,) and walked across the

highline in what i was laughing about calling “Balls and chain.” I couldn’t

decided if falling and having my cock and balls ripped off before i fell to

my death was worse, than falling and having my cock and balls hold me under

the line, attached to a leash, stretching slowly as I awaited rescue... I

cleared that from my mind as I smiled and my friend snapped a photo of me

finishing the line. And ever since that day, that full frontal nude shot of

me has circled the globe!


From internet forms, to climbing articles, to

International publishings, etc,etc. Its been shared everywhere, loved,

hated, uploaded, deleted, banned, framed, and more. Not many people get a

chance for full frontal nude publicity, but hey, when you get the chance...

Let it happen. It’s slacklife after all.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

I have never had a really serious injury from any sport and in fact I

have never broken a bone. I crashed mountain boarding and lost a lot of

skin once. That was my only time getting stitches, other than from surgery

to my face after that accident to repair the damage! I tweaked my

ankle once tricklining in a contest and was walking in 4 days, injury

lingered for 6 weeks. I crashed hard BASE jumping multiple times, bruising

my heels, spraining my write, smashed my knee once really hard, walked to

the top of the jump and jumped it again... that knee injury lingered nearly

16 weeks. I have taken multiple nut shots of epic proportions, highline

leash rings have crushed my knuckles, knees, face, teeth, bit my tongue, I

have taken many many many super hard hits, tumbling through rocks, big

whippers climbing, one bruising knee, walking in 3 days, 6 weeks lingering,

countless flesh wounds, busted toe nails and finger nails, and I would

actually say that my most intense injuries in my sporting career were

emotional. In competitive trickline, I got 2nd place to my best friend

Alpha Mike, and lost my shit! I tore my check in half, walked off the

podium, poured water on the judges, and ran off in tears. Embarrassing

yourself, hurting your friends, and being voted 2nd hurt worse that any of

the injuries I’ve sustained, and takes longer to recover from... sometimes

you never recovering fully. But bar-none when I witnessed the body under

the cliff and experienced the death of my friend Daniel.. That was the most

intense injury of my career. I dealt with.. and am still dealing with that

emotional wounding. I am asking myself if I feel lucky to have my most

serious injury be emotional. And I think I do. But man, I do miss you Dan.


8. Who is your real life hero and why?

One of my real life heroes is Phillipe Petit, the Man on Wire,

because he embraces great risks with great style-- even if the risks

include crossing the strict boundaries of the system. I have never met

him, but I appreciate his talents, honor his achievements, and have been

inspired by his storytelling, photographs, and movies. Especially from his

most famous mission of charging up and wire walking the World Trade

Centers. I am envious and a little jealous because now-a-days, you pull

that kind of stunt and you go to jail for years. The United States does

not FUCK AROUND anymore, and the last people who snuck onto the new world

trade center and jumped off are looking at serious time. But having

explored the upper echelon of a balance sport of similar nature to wire

walking for over ten years, I am still in awe of the stunts he initiated

30+ some odd years ago. And the fact that he did all his performances free

solo, still blows my mind today. Kudos Phillipe, thank you for your art.

I hope to meet you one day, shake your hand, and thank you for the

inspiration as I see the crazy look in your eyes!

9. Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why?

One of my favorite hero/comic film’s was “The Mask.” Jim Carrey, plays

a character of normal guy, down on his luck, with a slogan he begrudgingly

accepts, “Nice Guys Finish Last.” I guess he isn’t really your average

super hero, but when he finds this mask he becomes this frigging

ridiculous, off the wall, hilarious, dark but lovable badass that happens

to be one of my favorite comic/hero’s characters ever. I loved The Mask

because it allowed the wearer of the mask to embrace the power of their

true character-- sometimes inflating the negative characteristics of the

wearer. I found the philosophy behind the mask to be inspiring. They talk

about people wearing masks, the face everyone shows the world, when they

are really different underneath. Its a metaphor for the barriers people

put up for themselves naturally in society.


0. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their

own world championships like the Olympics?

I feel as if extreme and unusual sports already have their own

championships, they’re just not considered Olympic sports yet! Nor do they

have the funding to. Slackline, Foot Bag, Fire Spinning, etc. It comes

down to skill set, consequence, and overall watch-ablity to me. A

sport can’t just be extreme, it also has to be interesting, and fun to

watch. If the sport isn’t interesting, well its over right there. If its

not fun to watch, you won’t get the support you need to even have a

championship. The most difficult task for the extreme and unusual sports is

having the upper echelon members of the sport get together to design a

contest that is good for the sport, as well as interesting, but most

importantly watchable for the audience! This combination is hard to achieve

sometimes. Just in terms of coordination, a lot of the time in niche

sports, the top athletes reside on all parts of the globe. All of a

sudden to have an international contest of any worth (compared to the

olympics) you need to invest ~$150,000-$200,000 minimum, and the platforms

for these small extreme sports can’t front the bill. But, one day maybe! I

have my fingers crossed :D

non-competitiveness among practitioners since competition is one of overcoming its own

limits and fears it,

friendship and sense of family that forms

when I throw in some public places or when winter comes and I can not train, now no

Pedro Rafael Marques. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Slacklining.

My name is Pedro Rafael Marques. I am 19 years old. I have been practicing Slackline for

2 years!

I got introduced to slacklining in Jericoacoara on July 3rd 2013 when I had no idea what

it was, and just then my world changed with learning to slackline. My favorite trick is the

Frog-flip. I like to combine it with many other moves. When I’m not doing slack, I stay

home and study or I go long boarding. My biggest dream is to be a World champion and

rank number one. Now that dream seems possible with Slackline Industries.

Interview Questions for the Heroes World Championship art book:

Ronnie Iverson . Discipline: Heroes Extreme Street Luge.

Ronnie Iverson 5’6” 160 40 years old

I’ve been involved with Gravity sports since 1993 been Street Luge ING since 1998

I train by riding at least once a week and going to the gym

The best thing about luge is the adrenaline rush you get at high speeds

The scariest thing I have experience d was breaking and dislocating my ankle it was

almost completely sideways to the left with a massive lump on the other side I was calm

but I was also scared not knowing what was going to happen to my foot

I overcame this by staying positive that I would ride again

One of the funniest things that happened while racing the guy in front hit a chipmunk I

seen it catch air then I ran it over or having a snake striking at my helmet

I’ve broke toes torn muscles broke ankle dislocated ankle 6 or 7 ankle foot injury on my

left side 0 on my right side

My real life heroes would be my children my son Vincenzo and daughter Adrenalena

they both overcame many obstacles when they were born Enzo was born a month and a

half early spent 9 days in the hospital Lena spent 19 days

They have over come so much I so proud to say they are my children love them very

much

My favorite character was Aqua Man I enjoy swimming and remember as a kid pretending

to be him while swimming

I feel if Street Luge or Downhill Skateboarding were to get in the Olympics would be

awesome it would give more exposure to the sports it might also help get a training

facility (Downhill Park) built thru out the world


Interview Questions for the Heroes World Championship art book:

Mike “ThePapdog” Paproski. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Street Luge.

Mike “ThePapdog” Paproski 42 y.o. 5’10’’ 185lbs 1. I skated a bit as a kid but did not get

really into it until I was about 33 years old, at first I pushed around not very fast, but I

soon found that I liked to go fast... when I first started bombing hills I would do it sitting

down on the board (this is called buttboarding) and once I got the hang of a road I would

try it standing up. I like to do both now, down hill skate and street luge. 2. I love the thrill

of the speed for one but, I also like the natural purity of the sport (gravity rules!) 3. I

exercise daily, and ride as often as possible. 4. I love that this sport is so accessible

to so many people, its cheap to get into and challenging to master. 5. I had a really bad

crash at my favorite hill, it was bad enough to land me in the hospital for a week. After

this crash, I had a hard time getting comfortable on that road. after I healed from this

crash I started training, I had to re-learn how to ride. except this time, I practiced until

I was confident that I had the skills to ride the hill again. when I did go back to the hill, I

rode it as much as I could so that I knew it in my sleep.. 6. https://www.youtube.com/

watch?v=bi1SPbqdduM

7. Yes, the crash I spoke of earlier, I was ran over by a Motorcycle, it separated my

shoulder, and collapsed my right lung. 9. I like Kick ass.. she and her father against the

world! I loved that movie 10. I would like to see some sort of extreme world championships,

I liked the idea of the X games, it seems like it opens the door to new or different

sports.

others?

I love the fact that this is the only sport in the world with 4 disiplines to it,, its exciting

playing the game of basketball - this is what seperates the sport form others and why it

is the best sport in the world

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

MIcheal Jackson for the kindness and giving person he was. Bruce Lee for the way he

thinks out sode the box - many people can inspire you.

Batman is always been my guy, I like the darkness and control over the night he has.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I feel as tho the olympics should create a urban and extreme sports section and have the

world take it as serious as the orignal olympics. I do not feel a seperate one created is

wise but more needs to be done to bring these ultiteritive sports into the olympics Hope

this is OK for now

Last robert

Middle philippe

Weight 50kg

Height 1,64

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

Did start climbing year 1975. At 1st to prove to myself that I was not a loser I did climb my

parents building. 7 storeys building. Then and not long after I became a boy scout and this

is when I have really started to climb.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

2 I didn’t see climbing as a sport as 40 years ago it wasn’t. Was much more something

adventurous. I did like the idea to conquer something with that possibility of life and

death. For me it seems to be be courageous. And added value compare with the other

sports like football and so on.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

3 abt training it was pretty much abt climbing as much as I could. Training home aswell.

Like pull up, push ups and many kind of exercices. Later on having your own climbing wall

at home.

Being aswell on diet. Healthy food. Not gaining to much weight.


4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

I really do my best to train and strengthen my movements much technical to do something

original and unique, you must have discipline and sacrifice much to have a good

result.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

I really do my best to train and strengthen my movements much technical to do something

original and unique, you must have discipline and sacrifice much to have a good

result.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

Talking abt building some of my best accomplishements are the sears in Chicago or the

Petronas in Kuala Lumpur. Still the highest twin towers in the world. Both were illegal.

Got 5 guiness world records certificate. Got the grand prix of the french senat in france

after I did climb Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Got one price from the IOC in 91 in Poprad Slovakia

after I did climb at that time the hardest route ever and free solo.8b.

Got plenty of prizes : Prix de l’exploit sportif. I’m in the book : les 100 plus grands

sportifs de tous les temps.

6.What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

Funny thing may be in Kuala. After being arrested by the cops. Sepending 2 days in a lock

7.Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

I fell 7 times. Recognised by the social security 66 percent disabled.condemned by the

8.Who is your real life hero and why?

I don’t have real life heroes. Or they may be people like mother theresa or sister emanuel.

Not really. I’m far too pragmatic for having that kind of heroes from comic book.

10.What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

Why not. When something is becoming popular it seems to be the natural process. On my

Espen Fadnes. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Wingsuit Skydiving

Name: Espen Fadnes

Age: 36

Weight: 70 kg

Height: 177 cm

Title and accomplishments: 1. FAI World Champion in Wingsuit Skydiving 2015, 3rd in

World Wingsuit League 2014, 1st in World Wingsuit Race 2013, Overall World Champion in

Wingsuit Flying in 2012, 1st in World Base Race and 1st in Pro Base Race 2011. WarrenMiller

Ski Movie Rider, Emmy Nominated for outstanding camerawork in wing suit flying.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I started skydiving in 2000 and base jumping in 2001 in my home country Norway. I was

fortunate to be part of the early beginning of wing suit flying and got to learn from the

best, such as Robert Peknic, Loic Jean-Albert and Shane McConkey. After 10 years as a

passionate hoppy pilot I managed to go fully professional in 2012 due to strong competition

results. I remain today a full-time wing suit pilot.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

Its the fascination of being above the earth. If I could go to another planet I would. If I

could grow wings I would. Flying is the best feeling I know of, especially when flying with

friends. We are not suppose to fly, but we still manage. It stands as a proof of humans

ability to evolve. I just had to fly I guess.


3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

One often says 10 000 quality hours is what it takes to fulfil your potential in a task. An

amount easily reached by a marathon runner, often reached by Alpine Skiers but never

reached by air sport athletes. I think the key to stand solid and safe at the frontiers of

human flight is to do it as much as possible. So thats what I do. I spend as much time in

air as I can, with the focus of learning.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

I like air sports touch of something dreamy. We all are n the business of reaching for the

impossible. A human that flies, 100 %” defines something we are not designed to do, but

not only do we do it, we compete in it. And thats a rare thing.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

The most difficult thing about my sport is to live of it. We dont get the attention you see in

the bigger sports. Our low frequencies on TV make us less popular amongst sponsors. I

overcome this by never giving up, and try to be a trustworthy yes-man.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

Few funny/weird things happen in freefall unless I choose them to happen. Maybe the

weirdest thing Ive ever done is to go to Malaysia to speak about my life in flying to Malaysian

Airlines.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport? No


8. Who is your real life hero and why?

My little brother. He grew up with big challenges after being bored premature. He has

slowly grown stronger in life, never have he spoken loud about it, never has he been

complaining, at some point he passed his equals in what he was doing. Today he is working

with his passion, the music industry, and he is trusted by many successful artists. But

first and foremost, he keep it cool no matter how much it burns around him.

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

No I dont. There are books I pass by though, that fascinates me. The 1900-trilogy of Ken

Follett thought me lots about our history. I watch lots of films, and a really good film can

make me rethink parts of my personal paradigm. I would say to have a favourite film hero

may decline your chance to discover truly good films

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

Im not sure what this question means. To be an official sport, one needs to have an association

directly under the different national sports associations. Then the different sports

associations are linked under the international sports association. Now all official World

Championships can only happen under the wings of this international system. It doesn’t

matter if you are from Golf, Snowboarding or Skydiving. Their championships are equal

and official under the same system. If someone privately calls a competition the World

Championship, they can off course do so, that has nothing to do with the type of sport, it

only shows they are doing it outside the rules and regulations of international sport.

I think its cool to compete, but would prefer to officially represent my country, rather

than do those private more money based competitions that just put a name on their

event.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

Born in 1978 in the Netherlands, I always had a good active life, with lots of fun outdoors.

I originally come from a background of TV and Film (doing 3D Animation

and Special Effects work). Sports have always been a big thing in my

life. Running, swimming, gymnastics and later also things like

freediving, skydiving (and even dancing).

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

When I started flying wingsuits it was quite a new thing, with not many people doing it. It

just looked amazing, seeing these flying people with wings. And naturally it was something

I just had to try!

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

Training mostly involves flying a lot. I make about 600+ wingsuit jumps per year, and work

hard on always trying to improve my flying skills.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what

sets it apart from others?

Its quite an open sport, with the top athletes being quite open and accessible and even

training new people in the sport. Comparing that to any other big sport, the worlds top

are often quite an elite and closed of groups thats hard to reach for people new in

the sport.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in

this sport and how did you overcome it?

I think fear of heights is a big thing. Climbing mountains was never a big thing, coming

from a flat country like the Netherlands, so suddenly getting to venture into the mountains

is quite a scary thing at times.


If you’re not raised to be comfortable walking and climbing on very narrow cliff edges,

for sure that can rattle your bones a bit here or there. For me the hike is often the thing

Im more nervous out than the jump. Once I have

a parachute on my back its all cool :)

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst

doing this sport professionally?

To many things to name, but in general jumping from a mountain never becomes normal,

and every ones in a while you get struck by the realization how absurd out sport actually

is. But then snap out of that quite quickly, and go back to enjoying life in every beautiful

way imaginable.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

So far nothing serious ever, aside from a sprained ankle/shoulder due to bumping into

things before/after jumping. But nothing during freefall or the actual practice of the

sport itself ever.

8.Who is your real life hero and why?

I’m not sure I have any real life heroes. If anything its my wife who takes care of our

baby boy, and when Im on the road working, does an amazing job raising him as a beautiful

human being...

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

I think Deadpool comes close. Super abilities, yet a good sense of humor and not taking

life to serious..

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting

their own world championships like the Olympics?

It would be a nice thing, as any form of competition inspires people to train and practice,

and push their sport to the next level.

Multiple world champion In Skydiving and BASE jumping wingsuit competitions

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I have been skydiving at the age of sixteen. I am a Pro Skydiving athlete on The “Skydive

Dubai Wingsuit team.” I have 15000 + skydives and 2300 BASE jumps I started Skydiving

in South Africa and followed my passion around different Drop Zones and mountains of

the world.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

The air. I find “air” to be the most amazing element to interact with. I guess you could

also say I love Gravity, this is the engine that powers movement though air.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

I skydive full time. Training for various disciplines in wing suit flying. I also train for specific

Demonstration Events and BASE jumping wing suit races in the mountains. And just

stay active and do some yoga.


4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

Wingsuit flying allows a transfer of vertical gravitational pull to be directed into horizontal

movement. Amazing distances can be covered. I love this transfer of energy into glide.

I take great pleasure in seeing others smile from passion after a powerful new evolution

takes place.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

It’s not really a scary activity. Respecting the others in the sky is key.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally? Wondering if I left the stove on , while flying my wing suit down a cliff into

a valley in Switzerland.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport? No

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

The people who smile, these are the ones. They can help others to power up for the day

without having to say a word. I would say my mom and dad do this well. When i think of my

Big Brother i find my smile, so he would definitely be my “hero”.

9. Do you have a favorite comic book or film hero and why?

Death Stroke. He’s amazing. Who else could have stood in for Bat Man and pulled it off so

well.


10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

As sports and their spectators interest evolve, so to will the bodies that promote them.

In time I feel Air-Sports may very well be included in such an event as the Olympics. The

advances made in technology with regard to media and these sports being filmed has

increased spectator appeal too.


1) Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings ?

I started classic gymnastic at the age of 6. At 15, I had to stop due to a sport injury. I

then became a gymnastic coach. I first trained classic gymnastic then acrobatic gymnastic.

Then when I was 23,

I was able to start sport training again for myself and I discovered Slackline. This sport

discipline was a revelation for me. It was more than just a sport. I then started to train

on all my free time.

2) What attracted you and got you into this sport ?

Slackline is an excellent drug for me. It is both a mean of getting away, testing my

aptitudes, and to improve my skills every day. I always want to prove more, there is no

limits to this sport. The only limits we can found at the moment are in our mind.

When I step on my slackline, my mind is free and all my problems disappear. I then only

think about taking pleasure. I feel like a child at Disneyland when I jump. When I am on

a longline, I have the feeling to control and at the same time relieve my whole body and

my mind. When I am on a highline I have the impression to override all my fears. Slackline

has also given me a lot in return in my everyday life, my work and in my personal

and social life.

3) What do you have to train and prepare for this sport ?

Nothing special other than training every time I have the opportunity.

4) As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others ?

For me the best thing is the community that practice this sport. We are like a big family

that gather

each time there are competitions, different festivals or events. I love this spirit of

sharing, mutual

aid, friendliness, back in chilhood, exceeded...


My heroes in real life are for sure my parents because they have really done everything

for me.

They were always there for me and have always supported me whatever my decisions

were. This is for me what real hero does.

9) Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why ?

If I had to choose a super hero I think I would like to choose the Indestructible Elastic

girl. She perform all acrobatics she wants, stretches, contortions in all directions.

10) What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics ?

I think it is an excellent idea ! This would enable all athletes of the different sports to

gather. The atmosphere and the show would be fabulous !

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I am a mix of Canadian and Japanese. Before moving to Canada to learn English, I got into

climbing rooftops at the age of nine. Because of my home finances, I could not get into

sports teams, and eventually I ended up not enjoying anything other than climbing things.

Since I turned nineteen, I began taking my challenge to the next level by scaling cranes,

and for the past two years most of my missions involve climbing a crane.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

In Tokyo, where I was living, had not much to do for entertainment for someone active but

poor, so all I could do was mischief. I used to consider roof climbing as mischief and it

brought joy and temporary escape to my life.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

If I was to only climb rooftops, all I would have to do is to run up some stairs and maybe

a small ladder at the end. But some things are less accessible so you need to improvise,

often by walking on narrow ledges high above the ground or climbing a structure from

the outside.


For me, it is what this sport makes me as a person that I find the most reward. When

death is so near you that one mistake leads to death, you have no choice but to build

comfort with that fear. When I’m back on the ground, everything seems less scary. I am

always reminded and humbled that someday we have to die, that way I am inspired to do

my best to make an impact in people’s lives.

Upper body strength is crucial, but the most important thing that I found was the mental

muscle that helps to stay calm in stressful situations, which is forced to be strengthened

from climbing without safety gears.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

For me, it is what this sport makes me as a person that I find the most reward. When

death is so near you that one mistake leads to death, you have no choice but to build

comfort with that fear. When I’m back on the ground, everything seems less scary. I am

always reminded and humbled that someday we have to die, that way I am inspired to do

my best to make an impact in people’s lives.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

I suffer from a chronic disease that leaves me constantly exhausted along with causing

many neurological conditions. As I age my endurance slowly degenerates and it is now

very tiring and dangerous for me to continue climbing so I have told myself for a long

time that I would quit, but have not yet done so.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

One night in 2013 I decided to go out to climb rooftops. It was around 12:00 am and when

I dragged myself up a wall, there were hordes of seagulls sleeping. One seagull that was

only a few feet away detected me and it flew towards me in an angle to launch its white

poop on me and it landed on my pants. I knew I was in trouble. Before I knew it I was surrounded

by about 20 seagulls hovering over me trying to take a dump on my head. Some

even landed on me, unfortunately. I had to run around the rooftop for about five minutes

to dodge a rain of seagull poops.

Name: Vitaliy Raskalov Age: 22 Weight: 64kg Height: 177 cm.

Title and accomplishments:

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I started to investigate an urban life more than 5 years ago, the most interesting and

significant places which were visited by me are Pyramid of Cheops, the Cologne Cathedral,

Jesus Christ’s Statue, the Shanghai Tower and Notre Dame de Paris.

2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

The height and illegality attract me most of all in my hobby.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

Usually nothing. My hobby is closely connected with penetration into inaccessible places.

Thus we spend the most part of time for preparation and the plan of penetration inside.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

The best thing in this sport, so if it is possible to call it like this, is opportunity to see an

urban environment from foreshortenings inaccessible to ordinary people. To climb on

the construction crane in the megalopolis which is crowded, it is one of the few ways to

get out of city bustle. It’s possibility to feel free.


5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

The most terrible thing is fear of height which I has tried to break for 5 years. And I did

it.

6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

Generally ridiculous and strange occurrences happen with services safety which try to

catch us. Nonsenses don’t take place during our ascensions as often our lives are on a

game.

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

No, never.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

I don’t have any heroes in my life.

9. Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why?

Spider Man comic book, and film hero this is Wolverine from X-Men.

10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

Rob Alton. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Urban Climbing

Royal Caribbean Cruises Entertainer 2010-2016

Event: Championnat du monde de BMX Freestyle 1989

Place: St Ouen, FRANCE

Date: 26 et 27 mars 1989.

Cirque Du Soleil, production “La Nouba” Orlando, Florida USA 2003-2005

THE ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE

21st November, 2005

Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

Age: Weight: Height: Title and accomplishments:

44 years old, 68kg, 175cm, Flatland 17+ World champion 1989, Cirque du Soleil performer.

Professional BMX Rider/Entertainer for 25 years.

1. Can you give us a quick bio of your background and beginnings?

I started riding BMX back in 1982-3. I use to ride skate parks, ramps and flatland. After

a few years I realised that flatland was going to be my thing. 1989 I won the World

Championships in Paris in the 17+ age group. Later that year I was signed up by Vision

Street Wear and Haro bikes. In 1991 my entertainment career began and is now still going!

I worked for Cirque du Soleil for 2 years and performed for the Queen of England.

My show has taken me all over the world and provided for both me and my family for

the last 25 years.


2. What attracted you and got you into this sport?

My brother use to ride BMX back in the early 80’s and when I saw riders like Bob Haro

I was hook on BMX. I remember seeing Bob Haro in the UK at the Birmingham NEC, I

was totally blown away. My first bike was handed to me from my brother, it was a white

Mongoose.

3. What do you have to do to train and prepare for this sport?

When I was competing I rode around 3 hours a day but now for my shows I do more

fitness training than riding. At 44 the body needs to be looked after and after 30 years

of BMX it takes the toll on your body. So now I am very committed to my core training in

order to be able to ride for as long as possible and concentrated on my show routines.

4. As a professional, what is the best thing about this sport and what sets it apart from

others?

I am very luck that the sport I love tuned out to be my full time job, that’s the best thing

for me. However when you’re in pain or sick and still have to do a show it then becomes

work. I need to give 100% when I’m on stage even if I’m not well. I think that BMX or any

extreme sport is different because is not something you learn at school like football or

athletics. It’s a sport you do because you love it. You can only progress buy training hard

and learning for yourself in your own time and own style.

5. What was the scariest/most difficult thing you ever had to face in this sport and how

did you overcome it?

As a competitor I can’t think of any specific moment because contests were about jam

circles and having fun and hoping that you had a good contest routine that day. As a performer

however I have had a lot of shows for important people like the Queen of England

or shows for Cirque du Soleil. Performing for 2000 people doing a solo routine can be

quite scary at times!


6. What is the funniest/weirdest thing that has happened to you whilst doing this sport

professionally?

I have 100’s of stories since I have been working in the entertainment business. Some

involving wild animals others about crazy circus people. In fact my mum always say’s I

should write a book about it! Maybe one day I will, the stories are quite long so I won’t

start now!

7. Have you ever had a serious injury from this sport?

I knocked my teeth out at UK’s Romford skate park in 1990. Apart from that I guess I

share the same problems as most BMX riders. This is why I have such a strict core

training program now so I can keep on enjoying to ride and perform.

8. Who is your real life hero and why?

I don’t have any Hero’s as such but I really look up to and respect riders like Dennis

McCoy (DMC), Eddie Fiola, Martin Aparijo and others that have been riding so long and

representing the sport of BMX is such a positive way. There are many flatland riders I

watch online in awe of what they do. It’s so amazing to watch how the sport has progressed.

9. Do you have a favourite comic book or film hero and why?

I can only really remember reading Buster comic as a child, after that it was BMX magazines!

I don’t have any film hero’s but ET was one of my favourite movies growing. Also

one of the things that inspired me to ride BMX.


10. What do you think about extreme and more unusual sports getting their own world

championships like the Olympics?

I think that the X games was good for our sport and that helped bring BMX into the lime

light. Riders like Dave Mirra (RIP) bringing BMX on to TV and into people’s living rooms.

But since they removed some events from it like flatland and Vert I don’t think it shows

BMX in its true form on a level that kids could watch it and feel they could learn something.

For example BIG AIR is great to watch on TV but before that kids need to learn

BMX basics, flatland, skate parks etc. The TV companies are only interested in viewing

ratings not the sport its self. I think an Olympics might take away the real root of our

sport which is riding together and having fun and bring in politics and problems!

Tanner Morelock. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Longboard Downhill

Name: Tanner Morelock

Age: 18

Weight: 185 lbs

Height: 6ft 4in

Title & acomplishments: 25th in the world in 2015. 7th place at mt Kiera, 6th place at mt

Ruapehu

Bio& background: I bought my first board in 2011 just to cruise around. After finding cool

videos of people skating downhill, I was hooked ever since and have progressing in the

sport ever since.

Attracted me: just watching videos and wanting to follow in the footsteps of some of my

local pro skaters.

To train: I just skate as much as possible. Sometimes even twice a day. It’s an addiction

and I can’t get enough.

Best part about it: it’s an up and coming sport that is fun, challenging and brings me

around the world to compete. Each racecourse and road is different from the next

which makes the sport unique and different each time you do it.

Scariest thing to overcome: some of the roads that we skate are insane. Fast speeds,

tight turns lined in guardrails, and chundery pavement. One of the scariest thing I had to

overcome was being able to mob some of these insane spots with confidence. It took a

while but at this stage in my skate career, I will attempt any road that is put before me.

Weirdest thing: the weirdest thing that has happened to me while racing is probably the

fact that I have dodged some insanely close collisions with other skaters. One of these

incidents happened last weekend at mt Ruapehu in New Zealand.


7. Injury- I broke my leg a couple of years back getting taken out from Behind.

8. Hero- I really look up to 2 other pro skaters in my community. Aaron Hampshire and

Zak Maytum. I look up to these guys because they are nice, knowledgeable, and I learned

how to skate by watching them in videos since day 1.

9. I always liked spider man because I thought he was a bad ass.

10. I think it would be cool to get some of these rad smaller sports some true attention.

Participated in USA and Brazil World Cup and many national championships all over

America.

1. Before slacklining I was a skater/snowboarder. The first year I learned how to slackline

I just walked longer and longer lines and loved to surf the line.

2. The first day I could barely walk 3 steps and I think that is what interested me and

actually addicted me to slacklining. After the first year I saw someone flipping on the line

and I need to learn

3. In the beginning of my slackline career I weighed 185 pounds and I wasn’t eating right

or exercising. I now weigh 20 pounds lighter and I work out and cross train for slacklining

at a local parkour gym named tempest. The trampoline helps with my air awareness and

to learn new flips without having to learn them on the slackline first.


4. The best thing about this sport is that I know am in contact with hundreds of people all

over the world. And even though I haven’t met them in person the slackline community is

so open and welcoming that I can go all over the world and be welcomed by other slackliners.

The community is what sets it apart from other sports

5. The scariest and most exciting moment of my slackline career was when I performed

in a cirque show one summer. I had never performed in a show before and I was going

to be performing on the high line which was not my main point of focus. Never the less I

performed 206 shows in front of 800 people and learned so much. You just have to push

yourself outside your comfort zone.

6. I train in Santa Monica and if you stay late enough there is always some drunk people

to come up and ask what the sport is and they always are so confident that they can do it

so i step back and have a blast watching the attempts( fails)

7. I have had one big injury when I was competing in a competition in Colorado I landed on

my arm wrong and dislocated my elbow and tore one of my ligaments. I am still healing

from that.

8. A person that I look up to is Robbie Maddison. He is pushing the limits in his sport and

in life and he seems like such a down to earth guy. But the stuff he does blows my mind

9. I always loved Tarzan when I was younger and I still love the idea of surfing though the

jungle, swinging from vine to vine.

10. I love the idea of extreme more unusual sports getting their own world cups and

championships. Although I don’t think that slacklining should go into the olympics for the

same reason bmx and skateboarding are not. The way we perform tricks are so unique

to each individual’s style. 5 people might perform the same trick and they might all look

different. Olympics have a set standard that tells you different is wrong and I don’t think

that fits for slacklining and many other extreme sports.

Nickname: “The Spaniard”

Profesión: Deportista

Nacionalidad: Española

Hobbies: Slackline y Taekwondo

1- Well, my beginnings in the slackline are about 6 years ago, coincidentally saw a video of

one of the first world championships and I just fell in love.

2- attracts me the most is the ability to constantly improve and innovate possibilities.

3- Well, to practice at the amateur level slackline just need a rope slackline, two trees and

desire to improve yourself.

4- as a professional, the more I like is the community worldwide. I have not had the pleasure

of meeting other sports to Pro level, but on the slackline slogans are: Slacklife, Slacklfamily.

I like that!

5- injury, it is always more difficult to face. It is something that does not depend on you

but good happens in all sports


6- Maybe it was a competition, in America, the sponsor was a brewery, and it was hard to

participate because it is a sport of balance and most of the participants were somewhat

drunk

7- not really, I had some lessons on the shoulder but never serious.

8- my parents of course, why? thanks to them I can live.

9- yes, of course, the X Men I liked that they were many with superpowers and not just

one or two hehe

10- I really think it’s a great idea because due to the requirements to be an Olympic

sport, it would be very difficult for extreme sports have the opportunity to enter.

Matias Nicolas Sepulveda Medina. Discipline: Heroes Extreme Slackline

Name: Matias Nicolas Sepulveda Medina

Age: 17 years

Stature: 1.85 Mts

Pro Athlete Slackline

1 My name is Matias Sepúlveda I have 17, I’m from the city of Chillan (Chile) .Practico

slackline about 2 years ago, I began to practice the sport, because friends encouraged

to practice me and the truth was not something I call her my attention . My first impressions

were that I did not have skills for this and when climb was tough for me, because

my balance was not developed, I was frustrated was too difficult and too easy. By following

I started practicing what we call “Trickline” at the beginning my style was very messy

and it was very difficult to make progress. After a few months I realized that it is essential

to control and so I began to understand what the slackline in truth and what causes

in people. For some time the slackline began to be my lifestyle, thanks to the I met people

who are in the same connection I also know true friends who are from different areas

of my country, but when we are in any event makes it is as if we were 365 days a year

which makes this sport more than just a sport, it’s a different way of living. For me the

slackline has changed my way of life, because since I wake up in the morning and go to

bed at night I think of slackline and to perform in the next training, in addition to going on

the street and think that anything is slackline, this is to be living it every day

and enjoy it to the rest of our lives


2 Mainly that is an outdoor sports, not a common one, besides is extreme that really

calls my attention as be able to challenge myself for its difficulty

3 I get up early and I troat, in the afternoon I train slackline and at night I ride a bike

to strength better my legs

4 The best of all is the environment around the sport, the ones (or people) that practice

it, joining (mixing, gathering) cultures and making friends

5 At first, the lack of implementation and physical space to practice and be patient to

achieve my goals

6 I’m over it thanks to my perseverance and perseverance

The Infinity Light Arenas:

The Infinity Light Arenas will be a new state of the art building and like its namesake,

the arena will be shaped in a unique infinity shape that has two massive stadiums

housed within its figure of infinity shape. The stadiums will be able to hold thousands of

people. Each stadium will be able to facilitate an 800 meter track within the oval shape.

The Infinity Light Arenas will also feature a massive solar power billboard, towering

into the sky with advertisers having the advantage of having an add that can literally

be seen from across the city. This is innovation at its best because the solar powered

place and light around the arena will not use petrol.

The Infinity Light Arenas will also have dozens of retail shops, restaurants, a theatre,

a concert/performance hall and a museum dedicated to the history of extreme sports

and the Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships. It will be like a small village with

endless entertainment for all ages. Within the center of the infinity area are casino,

and one hotel for accommodation, as well as other facilities to allow a very convenient,

and entertaining stay for patrons travelling from different parts of the world to come

and view this event. There will also be a shopping center with seven magnificent levels,

facilitating numerous shops that will carry many different merchandise to create a

very unique, never-ending shopping experience known to those who have shopped on

the Las Vegas strip.

This special arena will not only be a famous architectural visual wonder that will draw

people worldwide but it will also lead the way in the latest scientific solar energy. It

will save and make hundreds and thousands by being completely powered by the sun

with solar panels being built into the design and walls of the arena itself.

Even the parking lot will make use of this exciting technology. There will also be a car

park underneath the arena for those who can appreciate a tunnel of light kind of experience.

The Infinity Light Arenas will be investing in the new “Solar Roadways” technology that

will turn all pathways, surfaces, roads, and even competition areas into solar panels

that not only collect and convert the sun’s energy but will change colour and design

on demand for every purpose. These solar panels have LED lights within them that can

work in unison to change into whatever pattern or design needed as well as generate

air conditioning and use interactive smart technology for fun and for safety.

These solar roadways have already undergone several levels of testing. This new

technology will allow everyone to have power. There will be no more power shortages,

and no more roaming power outages.

There will be less dependency on foreign oil, less pollution with a very long term advantage.

These roads will allow electric vehicles to recharge anywhere with the same

range as a gasoline vehicle. Check out http://www.solarroadways.com/intro.shtml

for more details. Collaboration with the designers of these unique solar panels is

already in discussion.

The Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships along with the Infinity Arenas will

also be a huge opportunity for investors. The way the building is designed will allow

for advertising to be exposed to levels never seen before. The arena will utilize its

design of the building being made of solar panels to also act as mass revolving billboards

that can change and circulate around the outside and inside of the arena.

The Olympics creates billions for investors and the Heroes Extreme Sport World

Championships is expected to draw even higher interest being a new and bolder take

on the Olympics with unprecedented mass appeal. Big brands like Cocoa Cola, Mc-

Donalds, Disney, Sony, Samsung, Apple, Acer, Red Bull, Nike, Reebok, Mercedes, BMW

and many more can take advantage of the unique and powerful new design that will

captivate people with stunning interactive visuals of advertising that is guaranteed to

excite. Broadcasting rights will further capitalize investors profits as well.

Future Light One - FL1 :

With the ambitious build of the Infinity Light Arena for the Heroes Extreme Sport World

Championships comes a new and exciting extreme sport: Future Light One (Future

Formula One), a new kind of car racing never seen or experienced before. Throughout

the years, car racing entrepreneurs have always sought to find a way for cars to

go faster, with minimal risk. We are thrilled by the movies that are built around this

sport, but know that if

we tried to replicate what we see on the screen, it carries of risk of damage, and

even tragedy. All that is about to change. The Future Light One (Future Formula One)

will be a highlight and history making sport as technology and sportsmanship combine

in this unique

and very futuristic way.

It is easy to envision something that has never been done before, to see the concept

in all its glory, even pen in full color what it would look like. The challenge is making

the vision a reality. Thankfully, there are many resources that are already in existence

to facilitate this. One such is the solar roadway technology. Using the solar roadway

technology, a solar race track circulating the perimeter of the Infinity Light Arena will

be built specifically for this event. The tracks will be encased inside a tunnel using the

solar roadway panels that is supported off the ground by sturdy, large columns and

intertwines above and between the parking lots, shopping center, hotel, casino, and

the general seating area within both stadiums. The full length of the track will be over

2500 meters in length.

Specially built shuttle race cars that can travel within these tunnels at very fast

speeds will be built to allow participants to travel at alarming high speeds that can

only be achieved within these tunnels. The tunnel shape will allow the new race cars

to do this in a safe and entertaining way. All racers will be contained within this solar

light tunnel and would have received ample training in how to maneuver and race in

these vehicles to assure it is a successful new extreme sport.

With this being the maiden voyage of this new sport, all the world is sure to be watching,

with that added desire top participate. Everyone loves when there is someone or

an entity who is bold enough to make the impossible a reality.


12


Once Future Light One ( Future Formula One) has proved itself at the Heroes Extreme

Sport World Championships, it is sure to take the world by storm and tracks

will be built around the globe to accommodate this exciting new sport. More people

will catch and expand on the vision, making this event something someone would

probably travel from one end of the earth to another just to participate. This will be

a dream come true for everyone who loves to be behind the wheel of a fast car, with

the risk eliminated. Again, this will be a massive and lucrative investment opportunity

for big corporations, and individuals willing to maximize on their profits.

The Future Light One (Future Formula One) is indeed the future of car racing. Never

before as the world seen an event of this magnitude. As the event grows, and becomes

exposed, there will be a heightened interest in extreme sports that will unite

fans all over the world, opening the door to many other possibilities.

The cars, and roadways will function and be powered solely from the sun. There is

no added expense for petrol, or any other fuel or maintenance parts. It will be built

to function from a natural source eliminating expenses, and maximizing profits.

There is nothing that has ever been created or attempted that can compare to this

event. Despite our greatest efforts, we have never been able to achieve pushing

the limits of a car beyond a certain KPH. The Future Light One (Future Formula One)

will change all that. Wits and guts will be tested within the confines of an adrenaline

completion where only the strongest and the fastest will emerge as the winner.

This event is designed to stretch us to our limits in speed and skill. It will be a joy to

those who participate, and equally for those who will stand on the sidelines, or sit in

the grandstands to witness this awesome feat.

There will also be camera embedded in this tunnel in order to capture memorable

moments that will be broadcast on the television screens scattered in the arena,

and also broadcast to the world at large. We will have the opportunity to get a close,

high definition view of what is taking place in the tunnels, without missing a heartbeat.

The rest of this book will highlight each of the 29 disciplines for the first summer

event for the Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships. Giving deeper insight into

the rules, history and current world champions of each discipline, the reader can

feel prepared and engaged with the upcoming competitions with deeper understanding

and appreciation.

This book will also give information of where to find out more about each discipline,

spreading the awareness of these unique and exciting extreme sports to a wider and

more varied audience. The hope is that readers can find different sports that reflect

the inner hero inside themselves and will inspire the interest and participation in

these sports themselves. Enjoy!

THE MOVIE 49.99£


Screenplay. Light Man, The birth of a new super hero.

Written by Marek Light. From the book, Light Man Universe

the Characters by Marek Light. The movie director Marek

Light.


INTRODUCTION

I would like to present my screenplay LIGHT MAN: BIRTH OF A SUPER HERO

Light Man : Hackney Bravo, born London UK

Light Wman: Gerbera Gold, born NYC

AH God of the heroes, Father of Light Man

Light Maker, God, creator of the heroes light.

Genre: (Action/ Adventure/ Comedy).

Logline: An ordinary comic book artist get sucked up in the cosmos and is reborn as the hero he

draws only to find the villains he created waiting for him as well! Fantasy

is now reality!

Based in New York City, Light Man accepts his new life as the super hero he once drew on Earth and

adjusts to the fact that his comic book adventures are now real. All the characters he once drew,

both good and evil, are all real. Light Man must assume the responsibility to destroy the evil hell bent

characters that he has unknowingly unleashed on the world through his art. His enemy is a god cast

down from the city of angels, and his mortal girlfriend who enjoys making things explode. They want

to take over the world, but in order to do that they have to defeat the gods, goddesses and Light Man.

Fortunately, Light Man discovers his allies of gods, goddesses and fellow superheroes that also exist

and a real life fight of good versus evil begins.

Light Man is determined to create theThe World Championships For Heroes,” an Olympics for extreme

sports that the newly created gods, goddesses, heroes and heroines can take part in. However,

his arch enemies are determined to turn it into the ultimate terrorist plot. In this epic confrontation

between good and evil, Light Man must align himself with all his allies in order to combat this evil

force.

Light Man offers a completely fresh universe of superheroes to engage with for a new generation of

fans. This story line is written to be continued on for a further two films to make it highly successful

and marketable with the hope for a cartoon T.V series, 3D animations and comic books to follow.

Highly motivated and driven, I graduated from the London Shoreditch College of Art in 2004 and

London The Metropolitan University 2008 Fine Art. Since then I have put on exhibitions in London, self

published graphic novels of my superhero stories, created two animations from my characters and

attended, as a professional, several comic book conventions. I am currently collaborating with other

talented creative people to expand my ideas and stories. If you are interested in reading the fulllength

script of LIGHT MAN: BIRTH OF A NEW SUPERHERO and a potentially highly profitable collaboration,

a full screenplay is available now.

Sincerely,

Marek Light

possible attack, plus fail through plan with Cosmos Man in duty.

GERBERA

How will we stay in touch?

HACKNEY

problems, Cosmos Man will sound a warning. The strongest forces in the universe will be there

Enough! It’s giving me a headache just listening to you talk.

(to those standing behind him)

Let’s show this stupid beast where they belong.

All the gods and goddesses rush to attack, but suddenly stop dead in their tracks. They look

around at each other.

Everyone around them is Warroom Man, Lady War and Varney the Beast. They begin attacking

each other. Warroom Man and Lady War can see who they are actually fighting, but in their

own eyes they are engaging the enemy.

There are people screaming, and running wild. They are trampling over each other to get out

of the arena.

in the stadium watching the epic display of power as the allies have turned on each other.

WARROOM MAN

This is working out better than I thought. And I don’t even have to lift a finger.

LADY WAR

Victory will be ours.

WARROOM MAN

You will be immortal as soon as I absorb all their powers.

They kiss, while everyone is fighting.

There is a cosmic display of plasma beams, and explosions of light as the powerful beings

battle against each other. Slowly they begin to weaken and start taking direct hits. Light Man

shoots a plasma beam and hits Varney in his shoulder, burning away clothing and flesh.

Light Man grabs his own burning shoulder as a similar wound appear. Light Man drops to one

knee. He looks at Varney, realizing he is not fighting back. His eyes look pitiful. Light Man gets

up, and walks over to Varney, who holds both hand up to defend himself

You are stupid, Light Man. Love makes you stupid. Now you both die.

Warroom Man is hit hard by an invisible force. The gun is knocked from his hand. Light Man falls

from his grip.

What was that?

WARROOM MAN (CONT’D)

What was what?

LADY WAR

Warroom Man is hit hard again. He topples over, but quickly gets to his feet. He swipes hard

at the air around him. He is hit again, and again. He starts fighting his invisible foe, baffled and

confused.

Warroom Man takes one final hit, and is sent spirally across the stadium, and crashes into a

cement wall. He falls unconscious and the wall crumbles around him.

Varney stumbles and falls, weakened. Light Man hits him with a plasma beam, and he vanishes in

a puff of smoke. Cosmos Man appears.

LIGHT WOMAN

Johnny! Cosmos Man pulls Light Man to his feet.

COSMOS MAN

(winks)

I always got your back Light Man.

They turn to Lady War. She has nowhere to turn. She raises both hands in surrender. Light Woman

subdues her violently. Plasma cuffs are placed on her hands and feet.

The hallucinations clears. The gods and goddesses stop fighting, realizing now that they were

fighting each other. They are all badly wounded.

RA is startled to see his hand on RH’s neck. He quickly pulls his hand away.

Light Maker rubs his eyes, as the real scene before him comes into focus. The gods and goddesses

are dusting each other off, and helping each other to their feet.

74


LIGHT WOMAN

I feel my powers coming back. I will go help the others.

Light Woman is touching and healing wounds all over the arena. Light Man hugs Cosmos Man.

LIGHT MAN

I feel I should know the answer to this question, but how did you do it?

COSMOS MAN

Well, when I noticed that every other face was Warroom Man, I knew something

was wrong. I figured it must be an hallucination, so I did what any normal person would do.

Do tell.

LIGHT MAN

COSMOS MAN

Instead of fighting the bad guys, just fight the one who I should not be fighting.

Me?

LIGHT MAN

COSMOS MAN

Yes. Turns out you were actually the real Warroom Man.

LIGHT MAN

You are brilliant. But I didn’t know you had the power of invisibility.

COSMOS MAN

I don’t. I have the power to shrink to an incredibly small size. You should know

I think today you have proven yourselves as the true protectors of the earth.

LIGHT MAN

Duty called. We answered.

LIGHT MAKER

Next time, take my warnings seriously.

I am sorry.

LIGHT MAN

LIGHT MAKER

Let this be a lesson well learnt. Light Man looks at Lady War.

LIGHT MAN

What about them?

LIGHT MAKER

The woman stays in a prison here. Warroom Man goes back with me. He will be

locked away for all eternity.

AH, RS, and LA walk over. They are fully recovered from their wounds.

AH pats Light Man on his shoulder. AH Sorry about your world championship for heroes. I know

this meant a lot to you.

M. LIGHT M. LIGHT AND H.R GIGER IN

SWITZERLAND H.R GIGER THE

CREATOR OF THE ALIEN BEAST

2013

The founder and art director of the Light Man Comics, Marek Szostaczko as Artist Marek Light.

A Quick Overview of the Light Man Universe Business Goals and Brand Expansion

Since time began, humanity has always desired a hero, someone to give hope and to inspire. Our current times are no different

as this hero worship takes place in the form of celebrity culture. Marek Light is offering a new positive hero for this generation

by the rebirth of the traditional comic book hero with a modern twist with his character ‘Light Man’ and his universe. Marek is

designing his character to be a truly modern hero for our time; a new figure to unite people worldwide.

Highly ambitious, the Light Man Universe has many goals; to not only bring a lot of profitable entertainment and highly marketable

inspirational characters, but also to revolutionise the way comic culture can affect society and expand beyond pen and paper.

Marek aims to achieve this with a new worldwide sporting event, full length feature films, an animated series, conventions, festivals,

merchandise and more.

Currently, Marek has two published graphic novels, Light Man #1; The Birth of a New Superhero, The First Dream and Light Man #2:

The American Superheroes. He has two animations all ready completed, which have all ready been featured in many film festivals

in 2014 such as the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival; Official Selection, NOFI World Festival of Student & Non-commercial Films and

the San Diego International Kids Film Festival, receiving a very positive response. Full length 25 minute episodes are also in the

making for a variety of his characters. Marek has also featured the Light Man Universe in the MCM Comic Con in London and with

more appearances in various comic conventions in 2015. Marek will visit comic conventions all over the world including America

and Japan to spread the Light Man Universe. He is gearing up to feature in the San Diego Comic Con in the near future. His goal in

all of these present creations of Light Man is to be an invitation and demonstration of all the possibilities of how these characters

can be developed and marketed.

Currently, Marek is working on having an animated cartoon series and a full length live action feature film. The feature film will

massively expand the brand and help make it a global phenomenon. The script for this film is currently under development and

will be presented to investors, screen writing agencies and production companies. More graphic novels are also on the way with

a variety of the characters getting their individual series. Future publications will include graphic novels Cosmos Man, Light Man

#3, Light Boy and Light Girl and Love Man. Marek has all ready developed merchandise based on his characters including not only

T shirts and caps but more unusual items such as uniquely designed Light Man Lamps and perfume fragrances. The ways the Light

Man brand can be expanded is limitless.

Marek’s next big goal is to create a completely new sporting event called ‘The World Championships For Heroes’ which will be a

new kind of Olympics for extreme sports. The Olympics are breath taking and amazing all ready, but just imagine if the concept

was taking further with the heart stopping danger and skill of extreme sports! Not only that but a special message of how the

everyday person can become a hero will be the central theme of the event to positively encourage and inspire a new generation.

The World Championships For Heroes will be a ground breaking event sure to revolutionize sports and unite the world in a new

way. It will be a fantastic investment opportunity and a big promotion for sports worldwide.

Like the Olympics, this amazing sporting event will happen every four years with both winter and summer events. Marek is aiming

to start the qualification program from spring 2019 and the grand opening of the actual event taking place in the spring of 2021.

This will take place in multiple places around the world as each extreme sport demands its own unique environment. However,

there will be a central base where some of the sports that do not need a specific environment will take place along with the opening

ceremony. This location will change locations for the summer and winter just like the Olympics so it can be fairly represented

throughout the world.

Events so far include: Cage Fighting, Wrestling, Strongest Man, F1 Race Car Driving, Football for Heroes, Skydiving, Paragliding,

BMX, Mountain Biking Downhill, Skateboarding, Aggressive Inline Skating, Cliff Jumping, Base Jumping, Street Dancing, Surfing,

including Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing, Water Skiing, Jet Skiing, 8000m High Mountain Climbing, Ice Climbing, Yacht Racing, Diving,

Snow Boarding, Toboggan Racing, Skiing, Ice Skate Racing, Extreme Motorsport, including Super Cross, Motocross and Freestyle

Motocross, Bungee Jumping, White Water Rafting, and High-lining.

Ultimately, the long term goal is to create a new iconic super hero brand, with a very positive message that can be marketed in

many different forms worldwide. The comics, animation, and film script thus far have been created to be promotional ideas to

encourage other creative talent and marketers to get behind and invest in a new polished product with global appeal.

Just like the summer Heroes Extreme World Championships, the winter version will happen every four years, but

every two years with alternating summer and winter events. The first year for the winter events is hoped to start

in 2023.


and towns around all of these sites. Each of the five areas have its own very distinct characters and challenges.

The amount and quality of snow that Scotland gets is some of the best in the world. Having Mountain ranges and

plenty of cold water recourses surrounding the country also make Scotland an ideal location.

Like in the Olympics, different countries will host the event each time so all of the world can be fairly represented

and celebrated. However, a country must be able to prove that it has the natural resources to host these sports

as many of them depend on icy cold weather, frozen water, snow and big mountains.

The first winter Heroes Extreme World Championships will take place in the highlands of Scotland in 2023. Scotland’s

five winter sports centres Cairngorm, Glenshee, Glencoe, The Lecht, and The Nevis Range, offer fantastic

opportunities for a variety of winter sports. There are also great facilities both on-site and in nearby villages.

After this, countries can enter a bid to get an opportunity to host the next winter Heroes Extreme World Championships.

An special winter version of the Infinity Light Arena will be built. However due to the nature of many these sports,

multiple covered and heated stadium seating around the event sites will be built.

The winter Heroes Extreme Sport World Championships also be about promoting green and sustainable energy.

All powered vehicles will use eco electric engage and the new “Solar Roadways” technology will also be utilized

just like in the summer event.

This technology will turn all pathways, surfaces, roads, and even competition areas into solar panels that not only

collect and convert the sun’s energy but will change colour and design on demand for every purpose. These solar

panels have LED lights within them that can work in unison to change into whatever pattern or design needed as

well as generate air conditioning to keep everyone warm and use interactive smart technology for fun and for

safety. The solar technology will be able to work even in snow and heavy weather conditions. Check out http://

www.solarroadways.com/intro.shtml for more details.

The opening ceremony will also be very spectacular with special affects and award winning performers to create

an unforgettable experience. A special set of winter versions for the metals will also be created for the event.

The theme that everyone can be a hero will continue on as it did from the summer events and incorporate its

own huge comic, film and entertainment convention alongside with the excitement of the sporting events. Expect

special winter themed extras like an ice skating rink, snow men building contests, ice sculptures, a Christmas

market and more.
