Japanese schoolboy Ryo Ishikawa has became the youngest ever person to win a professional golf tournament.
The 15-year-old earned the red winner’s jacket of Japan’s Munsingwear Open KSB Cup on Sunday in his first ever participation in a professional competition, beating the record by Spanish legend Severiano Ballesteros who won the 1977 Japan Open at 20 years and seven months old.
Leading Buddhist monks from around the world gathered in Changzhou, China, on April 30 to inaugurate the world’s tallest pagoda. Image and story via ChinaDaily.
The Tianning Pagoda has 13 storeys and a height of 153.79 metres. It’s part of the Tianning Temple which dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618–907). The design of the pagoda also mimics architecture from that era. It took five years and US$38.5 million to build the pagoda.
There’s no official record for the world’s tallest pagoda, so it’s a self-proclaimed thing. There’s not many giant pagodas around the globe though, and no one seems to dispute about the feat. The previous tallest pagoda is (unofficially) the Shwedagon Zedi Daw [wiki] in Burma which is 99 metres tall.
