Wearing only a black shorts and with his arms outstretched for balance, Shi ran over 200 floating plywood planks and successfully made a new record by running on water for a full 125 meters. The monk has spent 10 years teaching himself how to dart across wafer-thin plywood planks, which float atop the water and are connected by pieces of cloth. He set his 120 meter record in January, having recorded 18 meters the previous October. According to the latest report, Shi did this to raise money for the tuition of the children of 15 prisoners serving in jail.
