Ms Heather Larsen from Golden, Colorado, performing a split while walking a 35m highline strung between two towers - the tower on the left was built by King Herod some 2,000 years ago - in the Tower of David citadel complex overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem yesterday. Ms Larsen, one of the world's top women highliners, was walking the line as part of a Kickstarter campaign for an outdoor product. According to ESPN, when she is not highlining or teaching others the skill, Ms Larsen works as a full-time investment analyst in Denver.
