TO COMMEMORATE his 45th birthday, Slovak juggler Milan Roskopf climbed the 45-story Evansview skyscraper in New York on March 27 while juggling three one-kilo balls.

The Man with Three Balls, as he is known, initially wanted to conquer the Empire State Building and then the 103 floors of the world's second tallest building, the Sears Tower in Chicago. However, the buildings' officials refused to approve these stunts for security reasons. The juggler from Bratislava's Rača district climbed the Evansview skyscraper in 5 minutes and 28 seconds. He is satisfied with the performance, as Evansview is the highest building he has climbed so far.
