In the morning of September 9th, the world’s highest fencing match outside a Tower was held in Auckland, New Zealand. The event will be submitted for a Guinness World Record. The SkyWalk platform is 192 metres high and 1.2metres wide, just slightly smaller than a fencing piste which is 1.5 metres wide. The two fencers had an incredible time out there!
