World Records were smashed over the past month at Fluid's Fall tournaments! Firstly, Jacinta Carroll flew 198ft (60.3m) to break the Women's Jump Record by over 4ft on September 27. Two weeks later at the Holy Cow Cup, Anna Gay scored 10610 for a new Women's Trick Record and Aliaksei Zharnasek amassed 12610 for the Men's Trick Record. Unfortunately, Aliaksei's record was not ratified by the IWWF but Anna and Jacinta's performances are now in the record history books. Look for Fluid's 2017 tournament schedule coming out soon to register, compete and break your own records in 2017.
