DUBAI – Polish unicyclist Krystian Herba, the new world record holder of Stairs Climbing By Bicycle, hopes to conquer Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower measuring 828 metres, next year.
After climbing 2,040 steps of the 68 floors of Rose Rayhaan by Rotana on Monday, Krystian told Khaleej Times in an interview that he wants to come back next year to conquer the tower holding eight records: the tallest building in the world, highest number of stories in the world, highest occupied floors in the world, highest outdoor observation deck in the world, elevator with the longest travel distance in the world and tallest service elevator in the world.
“After going to Burj Khalifa today, I have this desire to climb it as soon as I get more information about it,” Kyrstian said.
About 18 marathoners participating in Dubai Marathon on Friday appreciated the stamina and the commitment of Krystian to break the Guinness World Records. Vuaillat Bernard, a marathon world record holder in Rotherdam and in Berlin, says that he appreciates very much Krystian’s decision to break the world record. “I myself is a record holder in many competitions and I really glad to be able to witness this quest. I can feel how he feels now.”
