A magic show entitled "Crossing the Yangtze River, a Magic Night at Yellow Crane Tower" has been staged along the Yangtze River in central China’s Hubei province.

By using special equipment, Li Ning -- the magician -- managed to cross from the Yellow Crane Tower to the Guishan TV Tower, a distance of 3.1 kilometers, within 15 seconds. It takes a car about 1 minute, driving at the speed of 120 kilometers per hour, to travel the same distance.

After finishing the first stage of the magic crossing, Li Ning successfully crossed back to the Yellow Crane Tower with a girl from the audience. Li Ning is the only Asian winner of the "Gold Magic Stick" in the Monte Carlo International Magic Competition.
