New World Record Fierljeppen 19.96 meters

Jaco de Groot from Kamerik (Ut) jumped Saturday in Polsbroekerdam a new National record (which is also the World Record) of 19.96 metres

During the championship of Holland Jaco de Groot managed to beat the old record with 19 centimeters. The old recordholder was Bart Helmholt since July this year.

Extra aspect to this record is the fact that Jaco de Groot is still jumping in the Junior Category (last year). In the process of regaining his Junior Record (lost last Tuesday to Hannes Scherjon) he managed to surpass the overall record as well.
