A man in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality succeeded in rolling up 28 dices and piled them up together in one straight line within two minutes Wednesday, breaking a new Great World DSJJN record, a Guinness-like local record run by Shanghai's Great World, according to Chongqing Evening News.

The 44-year-old man, Cai Dongsheng, broke the same record last year with 27 dices piled up.
After that, Cai continued to practice three hours per day, expecting to improve the unique skill. Two months later, he succeeded.
However, the skill requires a lot of strength and hand-eye coordination.
"It is much more tiring than the 1,000-meter race," Cai said.
Cai Dongsheng has been famous in his neighborhood for being good at strange skills, including biting nails and cutting stones with his hands.
"My family opposes me to practice these skills, because they are harmful to my health," Cai said. However, after the Great World DSJJN headquarter issued a certificate on Cai's dice-piling skill, he was encouraged to go further and expected to pile up 30 dices within six months.
"I want to perform this skill and share it with others after that," Cai said.
