Would You Walk The Length of 4 Football Pitches, 100m Above A Small Chinese Town?
This crazy world record attempt almost ended in disaster...
It's just one inch wide and Alexander Schulz just walked 375m along it - the length of four football pitches - while suspended 100m above the ground.
"The longer I was on the line, the harder it was to keep up the concentration"
Schulz and three friends went out looking for the perfect spot while in China for a slacklining competition. These two limestone towers in Yangshuo turned out to be the perfect spot for Schulz to beat the previous world record of 305m.
“The longer I was on the line, the harder it was to keep up the concentration. Twice I thought it’s just still so long, but I had to tell myself: I still got the chance to send this line, so let’s not miss it, and concentrate!" said on the One Inch Dreams website.
The idea is to cross the line without falling, even though Schulz was protected by a safety line. He finally managed it after a gruelling 40 minutes of walking. Unbelievable. How far will it go next?
