Sport: This is stated by Red Bull in a Instagram posts. It is the Austrian-American energy drink manufacturer that has built the giant hill and financed the project.

Kobayashi aims to get over 300 metres.

Red Bull writes that it is a new world record, but it is uncertain whether it will be approved. The official world record is the Austrian Stefan Kraft, who has 253.5 metres. He set it in Vikersund in 2017.

The beverage manufacturer has been secretly working on the monster hill in Hlidarfjall for a year. The stunt has caused major reactions in the show jumping community.
