Weekly Report No 408, CW 34

From Monday, 18.08.2008 to Sunday, 24.08.2008

On 20.08.2008 the best cliff jumpers met for a first training in the Miniatur Wunderland. The reason for this was a top notch extreme-sports event which was staged by Red Bull and hit its peak on 23.08. with jumps off the Rickmer-Rickmers at the Hamburg Landungsbrücken.

The kick-off was the jump of a miniature cliff diver from a door of the mini-miniature wunderland before the real jumps from one of the top hatches of the warehouse were started.

Look at these spectacular pictures!
