18-year-old French walker Pablo Signoret set a new Guinness world record of 26 minutes to complete a 450.59-meter long slackline race blindfolded over 420 meters in the air on Saturday.

The highline challenge was held in Shimenguan in Yangbi county, Yunnan Province. Three walkers joined the blindfold slackline walk challenge. Mia Noblet, a female walker from Canada tried in vain. Samuel Volery, a walker from Switzerland, also finished the challenge but with more time than Signoret.
