If you're afraid of heights this is not the sport for you-

but height apparently doesn't bother this guy from China- he broke a record today for walking on the highest tightrope ever.
The rope is 662 meters above the ground-
Chinas "air prince" as he is called made it across walked across the rope with a crowd of 40 thousand looking on.


The walk took almost an hour- We call it walking but he did more than that- The act included a handstand, a footstand and so called sleeping on the rope stunt.
By the way, the bag over his shoulder carries a letter from his wife he believes brings his good fortune. (------------)
