    Dan, OK thank you, just wanted to make sure

    Hassan No, Ben's method is not acceptable. He did not "push a balloon up stairs using head." He ran up a staircase, heading a balloon while doing so.

    So does Benjamin Gross' method of knocking it up in the air and heading it while being vertical acceptable?

    After close examination it has been determined that Ben did complete a 33-step ascension. From the 0:15-0:16 second mark no more stairs were climbed, making the final count 33.

    Yeah I'm assuming that at the pace of 2.2 stairs per second that you probably progressed 30 or 31 stairs in 15 seconds

  • United States Ben Jenkins

    I agree with you Neil. They should only accept however many stairs I got within the fifteen seconds. It's not that I was going for 16 seconds, it just happened to be over. I had still broken the record by 15 seconds though. Whoever is verifying this should probably take a look at the video and double check the number stair I am on when I hit 15 seconds.

  • United States Neil Moallem

    Ummmmmm how is this attempt accepted when he went for 16 seconds instead of 15? At the very least only the stairs he got up in the first 15 seconds should be counted, not all 33. If I went for 20 seconds would you count all of the stairs I progressed in 20 seconds or just the ones progressed in the first 15??

    Thank you!
