Red GX-56 on the Wrist of Taig Khris?

    Posted the 31st day of May in 2010 by Riley.

Was Taig Khris wearing an unreleased red GX-56 when he made set this new world record?

World champion roller-skater Taig Khris sets a new world record by jumping off the Eiffel Tower with skates on. The 34-year old launched himself from the 40-meter (131 foot) high first floor of the famous monument down onto a giant-sized quarter pipe ramp beneath it. It took two attempts to officially set a new 12m (39 feet) record for "dropping" - jumping off a structure and free-falling onto a landing.

Thanks OBC972, Jochen and Sjors.

Update: Casio Europe has confirmed (thanks to Sjors) that he is indeed wearing a GX-56 G-Shock that they supplied him. Here's a photo:
