Sydney, Oct 24: Felix Baumgartner, the first man to break the sound barrier in a freefall, has offered, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon a chance to learn how to skydive.
Baumgartner made the offer on Tuesday during a meeting with the UN head to discuss his death-defying jump from the edge of space earlier this month.
According to Stuff.co.nz, when Ban said that he had never skydived, the Austrian offered up his services.
“Here’s your chance, I’ll teach you to skydive,” said Baumgartner, who earned the nickname ‘Fearless Felix’.
According to the report, while Ban looked less-than-enthusiastic about the skydiving lesson, he did call Baumgartner ‘the most courageous person in the world.’ (ANI)
