Speed climber takes on lift in six-storey vertical sprint … and wins

Polish speed climber Marcin Dzienski beat an unlikely opponent in his latest race – racing up a 23m wall in just 12.12 seconds to prove he is officially faster than a lift. 
The 26-year-old, who was world speed climbing champion in 2016, clambered up a specially constructed six-storey wall the Olympic Centre in Warsaw to complete the stunt. Speed climbing is one of three ‘sport climbing’ disciplines that will feature at next year’s Olympics

    Haha that's funny, I'd like to see the speed climber take on 6 passengers, and still win.
    I have the utmost respect for their training and dedication to their sport, but, in my own opinion, Speed climbing is boring, the same every time.
