GWR Announces Nigerian Breaking New Record For Ladder-Climbing With Ball On Head

The Guinness World Records (GWR) has announced a Nigerian, identified as Tonye Solomon, as the new record holder for the most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head, on Wednesday.

The football freestyler achieved this feat by climbing a whopping 150 ladder steps.

“New record: Most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head – 150 by Tonye Solomon (Nigeria),” GWR posted on X account, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday.

GWR reported that after Solomon completed a 60 km journey from Amassoma to Yenagoa with a football on his head, some people doubted his story.

Tonye proved them wrong by setting Guinness World Records title for climbing 150 steps on a ladder with a football on his head.

However, he successfully achieved this impressive feat last month by climbing a 250-foot tall radio mast while keeping control of the ball on his head.

While spending two months training for it, using all his free time to practise, Solomon said he wanted to set this record to challenge himself and “inspire others to do great things.”

During the record attempt, Tonye appeared unaffected by the steep climb, finishing it in just 12.5 minutes.

After conquering all 150 steps, he jubilantly threw the ball down and celebrated with a triumphant fist pump.

Reacting to the success, Solomon revealed that it wasn’t easy, and he also thanked the Nigerian Civil Defense of Bayelsa State Command.

He said: “It wasn’t easy,” “I thank the Nigerian Civil Defense Bayelsa State Command for allowing me use their facility for this.”

Netizens has stormed the post on GWR official page on X, to congratulate the new world record holder.
