“I used to have a fear of heights and bungee jumping is a really good cure. I thought it was worth facing your fears and conquering them. So I decided to put that statement to the test,” he told the BBC before embarking on the quest to break the world record.
Dibon added that it would be his “pleasure to bring the record to Scotland”.
He planned for the epic challenge for over five years and trained for months. His first bungee jump was 11 years ago.

“We all work together to ensure safety, count jumps, so it’s really a team effort,” he said.
