The Great Elevator Race

An event to promote the debut of a new Olympic sport featured a Polish man racing an elevator in a seven-story race.

Marcin Dzienski, a speed climbing specialist, scaled a Warsaw hotel as a neon-lit elevator rose next to him. The 26-year-old climbed a 23-m (75-ft) plexiglass wall and hit the top after 12.12 seconds, with the elevator close behind him.

Speed climbing is one of three climbing disciplines that will be included in the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Dzienski was the world champion in a 2016 event.
