First to go was Valery Svezhov. He walked a steady pace and made it safely across the 1,000 meter long steel rope across the Han river in just over 22minutes. I caught this shot of him afterwards.
Second to go across was the Colombian Alan Martinez. He set off at a blistering pace in an attempt to surpass the target time of 11 minutes 22.49 seconds set by Abudusataer Wujiabudula of China on the first day of the event.
This is a 30 second clip of our view from the ground, of Alan 22 meters above us.
Sadly his time of 11 minutes 30.54 was just 9 seconds slower than Abusataer who remained unbeaten and went on to take the $15,000 first prize. The news stories I found did not have the full results, so here are the final results for the 15 who completed the crossing out of the 18 competitors.
|Laszlo Antal Simet||HUN||14:22.45|
|Jorge Arturo Ojeda||ECU||14:50.41|
