The daredevil acrobat was recorded in a breathtaking video climbing up a building- showing his incredible athletic skills.
Nikita Deft, 21, a professional photographer and a professional athlete from a small town in the North of Russia called Murmansk
In Nikita’s hometown the frost is up to -40 degrees- the winter lasts most months of the year.
His good friend Climentina Armstrong filmed the video on the 14th of September.
“I climbed into the skyscraper called Marina Pinnacle, the height is about 280 meters.
“The temperature was very high, about 45 degrees- in such weather everything heats up very quickly.
“Hands sweat and begin to slide- the plates on which I climbed up were very hot, I could not hold on to them for long and had to change quickly when I got up.
“They were slippery and it was uncomfortable to hold on to them.
“There was a huge adrenaline rush, but at the same time I felt serene and calm.
“After the tricks, I almost cannot stand, I need a rest but it is an incredible feeling and I adore it.
” I only check the footage the next day – my friend closed her eyes and did not look.
“These were really strong experiences- I will continue to do this until I reach my peak.
“I set myself a goal three years ago- I’m not going to change their goals.
“Create something new, something incredible and something that you can never buy.
” It has the elements of parkour,acrobatics,extreme,art- all this is what makes me an original and unique personality.
“I started doing this 4 years ago when I accidentally hit on the roof of a ten floored building.
“It was very scary and exciting, I couldn’t look down and put his feet- gradually, I began to have the situation under control.
“Now I feel confident on any height- I have a very good physical training.
“Tricks at the height can be very tiring but there is also a huge release of adrenaline, you can barely stand on your feet.
“I love to do what for other people is considered impossible- Money cannot buy this kind of feeling.
“There was a small injury was but not associated with roofs.
“The way I do it is by relaxing and controlling myself- I also have poor vision and wear contact lenses so that sometimes makes things harder.
“I spend a lot of time training, almost every day.”
