Legendary tightrope walker, Nik Wallender, completed a long-held tightrope walking ambition by doing a tightrope walk over the Niagara Falls.
Wallender, who comes from a family of tightrope walkers, prepared for his historic tightrope walk by spending the morning tightening the tightropes. “Once the tightropes were really tight, I knew the tightrope walk would be a breeze as long as the breeze didn’t get too breezy” said Wallender.
“As it happened, the breeze did get a bit breezy during the tightrope walk” remarked Wallender.” I felt I was really ‘walking the tightrope’ as I walked the tightrope but then I remembered how well I had tightened the tightropes so the last part of the tightrope walk was a breeze despite the breeze.”
The crowd was in wonder as Wallender didn’t fall in or under the Falls. “Awesome effort” said Orson Offord.
