>> Giang Brothers deliver dangerous in BGT final
>> Vietnamese circus record breakers
Vietnamese gymnasts, the Giang brothers have officially set a new world record with their head-balancing act in Italy.
Giang Quoc Co and Giang Quoc Nghiep
Giang Quoc Co and Giang Quoc Nghiep performed the act in Rome following an invitation from the Guinness World Records organisation. The brothers walked 10 steps in 53.97 seconds while balancing each other with their heads while being blindfolded.
They performed the act on November 15 and had to return to Vietnam immediately afterwards.
"We've been waiting after completing the act. We couldn't reveal much since the performance is exclusively aired by TV8 Channel in Italy per our contract. We only want to say that we always do our best not just for ourselves but also for Vietnam," Giang Quoc Co said.
The brothers said they felt even more emotional than the performance in Spain where they broke the previous record of most stairs climbed with a person on the head set by Chinese duo Tang Tao and Su Zengxian.
The brothers said they wanted to share the happiness with their families, circus performers and other fans in Vietnam and the world.
According to Nghiep, they were nervous a week before the challenge started and practised every time they got. They found the blindfolded one-minute test nerve-wracking.
