Guinness confirms Nigerian man’s record for most ladder climbs with ball on head


Nigerian man, Tonye Solomon, has set a new Guinness World Record for the most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on his head.

Solomon, 25, from Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, climbed 150 steps to the top of a 250-foot (76-metre) tall radio mast in just 12 and a half minutes.

The feat was witnessed by a large crowd of people, including Fish Jombo, a radio presenter who said he was “astonished” by Solomon’s achievement.

Solomon said he was inspired to set the record to challenge himself and “inspire others to do great things.”

I prepared for this for two months,” he said. “I trained every day, and I’m so glad I was able to do it.
