World Dyno Record Broken

Stefan Hadfield has broken the world dyno record by leaping 2.7 meters, or nearly 9 feet, from hold to hold. Hadfield made his body-length-and-a-half jump in Auckland, besting the old mark by 10 centimeters. “Official” dyno contests are held on a 20-degree overhanging wall, with two large starting holds and a ladder of identical footholds. Contestants leap up and left at a 45-degree angle to catch a jug that is moved progressively farther from the left starting hold. In 2002, Briton Matt Heason set the old mark at 2.6 meters, and Katherine Schirrmacher established the women’s record of 1.9 meters.
