Speed Climbing

Spiderman may not exist, but these guys are getting pretty close.  Zhong Qixin sets the new world record for speed climbing on this 15 meter course at 6.26 seconds.  It almost seems like he is flying up that wall rather than scaling.  The time and dedication it would take to be able to perform at this speed is almost unimaginable.

  4. There is always something very disturbing for me when I watch anything 'Asian'. I admire their skills, agility, creativity, etc. but... I just can't help the feeling this is all very different culture than European : D
