A Durban father is focusing his attention on a world record after his son demolished a monkey bar challenge held in Durban North at the weekend.

Seven-year-old William Basson’s jaw-dropping 527m feat saw him hanging and swinging from one monkey bar to another for 25 minutes without touching the ground.

On Saturday the Ocean View Montessori School learner smashed a monkey bar challenge held at the Adventure Obstacle Training facility in Durban North, dominating his peers and receiving heaps of praise from members of the public.

According to his father, Tom, 37, the course was designed as a 100m monkey bar challenge with his son completing it five times in one go.

“The challenge was to see how far you could go and each monkey bar was 50cm apart – once you fell off that would be your time and you would have three chances of bettering your score. There were various categories on the day which included men, women, children and elite,” said Tom.
