It took me a while to get around to this, but Hans and Yuji did it! I usually find watching climbing to be incredibly boring, especially from a distance, but it was incredibly exciting as they appeared to be on pace, then behind, then ahead but by just a little bit. In the end, they broke the record by about two minutes.
