Shaolin monk runs 125 metres across water (video)


He might have had a little bit of help, but this is still quite impressive.

Shaolin monk, Shi Liliang, decided he was going to have a bash at running across the surface of some water and trained for it for ten years.

Using nothing but some very thin wooden boards for support, Shi recently set a new record. After five failed attempts he managed to travel a whopping 125 metres.

Having completed the feat near his hometown of Quanzhou, Shi is using the media attention to raise tuition money for underprivileged students.

Good man.
