Gao Yang, from Anshan, northeastern China’s Liaoning Province, has practiced for almost 25 years sleeping on rope. Yang states that he practices sleeping on a 10-foot high rope in a park close to his home every morning.
“I met a master when I was 12, and he taught me some tips. It took me nearly 24 years to acquire the skill. It’s nearly impossible for ordinary people to do this,” Yang said. “It needs the perfect coordination of body muscles and balancing skills. I am finally ready to contact Guinness in the coming days and am confident of being able to set a world record.”
