Hang in there, Nik Wallenda — even if your wife just shattered your record.
Erendira Wallenda, the wife of the famous daredevil, showed him how it’s done on Thursday, besting his world record at the “iron-jaw hang” stunt.
Erendira did so by dangling 300 feet above Niagara Falls by her teeth on Thursday, the Washington Post reports. The lofty height was enough to best the 250 feet that Nik Wallenda dangled by his teeth from at a Missouri theme park when he set the record six years ago.
In a further theft of Nik Wallenda’s thunder, Erendira smashed her husband’s record on the fifth anniversary of his famous tightrope walk across Niagara Falls.
“If a guy can do it, a girl can do it, too,” Erendira said after accomplishing Thursday’s feat of dental strength.
During Thursday’s routine, Erendira also dangled from her knees, hand and toes.
