Well heeled: To practice, Faith first crossed the high line barefoot. The Pedra da Gávea is one of the highest mountains in the world that ends directly by the ocean
She was taking part in the High Girls Brazil Festival which she prepared for by first walking the line barefoot.
'It was my first time walking in Rio, and the view was beautiful. It is really spectacular to be above the entire city, the beach, and yet be so central while on a mountain. The exposure is breathtaking.'
The images of her walk were captured by the photographer Reginaldo Gomes.
He said: 'Everybody was so impressed by how Faith moved. She won the Brazilians over with her smile and how lightly she stepped over on the highline.
