Wallenda Sets Record Walk in Wisconsin
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — High-wire daredevil Nik Wallenda has completed his longest tightrope walk ever during an appearance at the Wisconsin State Fair.
Wallenda walked 1,576 feet at more than 10 stories above the Milwaukee Mile Speedway on the fairgrounds. The 36-year-old Wallenda holds nine Guinness World Records for his stunts. He walked across Niagara Falls in 2012.
Wallenda carried a 45-pound bar for stability and wear soft shoes made by his mother, Delilah, a member of the famous Flying Wallendas. She watched her son's high-wire act, as did his wife and three children.
