Olga Henry, 34, walks and performs jump tricks on a slackline with a pair of sparkly heels for footwear. One of the walks she does is on a highline tightened above a 40ft drop.

The slackliner, from Los Angeles, California, also showcases her incredible balancing skills on a row of cans of Red Bull.

“The idea for walking on cans of Red Bull developed after me and my boyfriend came back from Japan, where I was participating in a slackline competition called Full Combo.

“We were jet-lagged so thought it would be a great idea to slackline on the cans – we drank them afterwards.

Olga said: “One of the most fun tricks I did was a heel turn. It’s an 180 turn with only heels being on a line. It seemed impossible at first but I tried it over and over again, as my heels kept sliding off.

I nearly gave up, but I decided to persevere and give it a few more tries, and then eventually I found that I could do it”.
