Chinese Athlete Sets Guinness World Record by Climbing 36 Steps With His Head

Chinese athlete Li Longlong set a new Gunness World Record, breaking the one previously set by himself in 2012, for the most stairs climbed with his head. He successfully climbed 36 steps using his head only and it was incredibly exciting to watch.

“Li Longlong, who is from the Henan province of mainland China, has held the record for most consecutive stairs climbed on the head since 2012 – and he makes it look so easy!,” we read along with the video posted by the Guinness World Record Youtube channel.

What even makes a man want to climb steps with his head?

We’re not really sure, but Longlong is the best in the world in this unusual discipline. It may look easy when you’re watching him do it, but even trying to do a simple headstand is difficult for most of us. Longlong needed to follow a specific set of rules in order to set the new world record. For example, he couldn’t pause for more than five seconds before moving to the next step and he couldn’t touch the steps with any other body part, just his head. Check out how he did it in the video below.
