Space Cowboy Swallows Swords
Thursday, February 11, 2010 16:08 GMTSYDNEY, Australia (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) One mans sharp talent is a little hard to swallow.
Chayne Hultgren is known around the world as The Space Cowboy for the amazing feats he performs on stage.
Recently, Hultgren broke his own Guinness World Record for swallowing the most swords at once.
He sucked down 18 razor-sharp swords measuring six inches each, trumping his old record of 17.
The Space Cowboy says swallowing isnt something that comes easily to him, or anyone else for that matter.
Hes been training since he was 16 for the record- breaking swallow and says, Its definitely one of my greatest achievements so far.
To get his throat wide enough to fit that many swords, Hultgren stretched his airways with hoses and built up to the main event.
He assures theres no real danger in swallowing sharp, steel blades, but admits his doctor doesnt recommend his hobby.
