Valya Kobeleva, a girl of seven years from the Russian city of Voronezh was awarded the diploma of the Russian Guinness Book edition. The girl became famous for climbing up the 86-meter-high pipe of a boiler-house in one of the districts of the town.
Valya's parents said that their girl had been doing weird things since her very early childhood. As soon as she started walking, her favorite occupation was climbing trees and roofs.
The local press repeatedly reported about Valya’s unusual records. A month ago Valya was awarded two cups of the international club of champions. Unlike the parents, the local government and the guards of the boiler-house did not approve the girl’s hobby. Valya will not be able to repeat her deed: they removed several staples from the pipe and erected the extra enclosure.
