New Zealander Jed Mildon has become the first person to complete a triple back flip on a BMX bike.

The 24-year-old wowed 2,000 fans in his home town of Taupo on New Zealand's north island by performing the jump.

More crucial though was the fact that a representative of the Guinness Book Of World Records was in attendance to verify the jump and mark it down as an official world record.

Mildon completed three mid-air rotations before making a perfect landing.

"This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practicing and training for this moment," he said afterwards.

"The impact and implications hasn't sunken in yet, but I'm so pumped to have aimed for something once deemed impossible and made my dream a reality.

"Once I was in the air, it felt like time stood still and I could see each rotation perfectly.

"Landing with both wheels on the down ramp was the most amazing feeling in the world!"
