French slackliner wows crowd with Eiffel Tower performance
Paulin, 27, moved along the slackline suspended 70 meters above the ground, at one point sitting and lying on the rope before arriving at the Chaillot Theatre at the end of the half-hour performance.
"It's really beautiful starting from the Eiffel Tower," he said. "During the performance, I really didn't feel it, I really didn't have a fear of heights."
Paulin said Sept. 18's feat followed four years of practice, not to mention overcoming his childhood fear of heights.
In 2019, the Frenchman conducted a 150-meter-high, 510-meter-long slackline walk between two skyscrapers at Paris' La Defense business district.
