The real-life Vietnamese brothers can now stand proud as they more than tripled the previous stair record.

“We have been rehearsing this skill for 15 years. I have sometimes thought that I could not continue any longer, but we continue to go forward and overcome fear and danger,” Giang Quoc Nghiep told the Guinness World Records website.
He added: “I want to prove to everyone in the world that human possibilities are endless.”
Guinness World Records has officially recognized the achievement.
