Vietnamese artist brothers Giang Quoc Co and Giang Quoc Nghiep smashed a Guinness World Record on Thursday by climbing stairs with one sibling balanced atop the other using only head-to-head contact.
The record-smashing feat took place on the picturesque steps of the Cathedral of Girona in Spain, according to AFP.
The cathedral is well-known for its appearances in the popular TV series Game of Thrones.
The Vietnamese artists managed to break the record by scaling 90 stairs in 52 seconds, according to AFP.
Prior to Thursday, the record was held by Chinese duo Tang Tao and Su Zengxian, who climbed 25 consecutive stairs in a minute using the same technique in September 2014.
The Giang Brothers, among Vietnam’s most renowned circus artists, are known for their internationally award-winning performance “Suc Manh Doi Tay” (The Strength of the Arms), in which they perform various technically-demanding stunts using their arms and hands.
The brothers held a special performance in Ho Chi Minh City last month to mark their 20th year in the performance industry.
