Two Vietnamese brothers reclaimed the Guinness World Record in 53 seconds when one of the brothers climbed 100 stairs while the other balanced on his head. This stunt was exhibited outside the Cathedral in Spain.

Giang Quoc Nghiep interviewed with international media and said, “Today, we are feeling wonderful. We are feeling amazing because now we have climbed 100 steps within 53 seconds and I did not imagine in my mind…I hope everybody will remember this day.”


While another brother, Giang Quoc Co said, “Some days ago, we were under stress because of everyday practice. The weather is very cold and we practise in the morning till night.., Five years ago, we climbed 90 steps within 52 seconds…I feel wonderful,” the other brother can be heard saying in the video.”

The circus-performing brothers, Giang Quoc Co aged 37, and Giang Quoc Nghiep aged 32 also made the record earlier at the same venue in December 2016. At that time, they climbed 90 steps in 52 seconds.

This year, they achieved a record of 100 steps in only 53 seconds. The management set up 10 additional steps to perform the stunt, as the Cathedral has 90 steps.

In 2018, the world record set by the brothers in 2016 was reportedly broken by Peruvian acrobats Pablo Nonato Panduro and Joel Yaicate Saavedra with seven steps, 97.

According to the Guinness World Records website, the duo in December 2018 also had set another record to ascend and descend stairs in the shortest time while one of the brothers was blindfolded on Italy’s TV channel, TV8.
