A young man Li Jiguo from Qingdao, Shandong, created his own record on Sept. 3, 2007 that took him 6 minutes and 49 seconds to climb 1,500 stairs of a 55-floor Shimao building, which is about 236 meters high.

Li Jiguo started his stunt at 2:20pm with witnesses guarded at the stairway on each floor. He reached the top of the building in 6 minutes and 49 seconds later.

Li Jiguo learnt martial arts since he was 13; he is consistently doing exercises everyday for at least one hour. This young man told the reporter that he is confident to break this record in the near future.
