Shaolin Monk Runs 400ft on Water, Breaks Jesus's Record

Shaolin Monk Runs 400ft on Water, Breaks Jesus's Record

This unbelievable footage shows Shi Liliang dash a staggering 387ft (118 metres) across a reservoir in China.

The video shows Mr Liliang sprinting across the width of the reservoir while fellow monks film the impressive feat on smartphones.

It took Shaolin monk Liliang just six attempts to best his previous record by a full 60ft (18 metres).

To complete the impossible feat, monks sprint over a bridge built of 1cm thick plywood planks strung together and floated on the surface of the water.

A rock is thrown on-top of the planks at the start of the video, showing the bridge can easily be submerged.

Dashing across the planks requires intense focus and strength to use the limited buoyancy of the planks to cross the reservoir in Quanzhou city.


Mr Liliang has been training in Qinggong since 2005 and attempted his first record in 2009, only managing a relatively paltry 50ft (15 metres).

It took the monk, from the Quanzhou Shaolin Temple, just 45 seconds to cross the reservoir in his latest record-breaking attempt.

The Shaolin monastery is famous for its kung-fu monks that undergo rigorous training to pull off amazing acrobatic and physical feats.
