HÀ NỘI — Culture, sports and tourism minister Nguyễn Ngọc Thiện has signed a decision to award a certificate of merit to the acrobatic brothers Giang Quốc Cơ and Giang Quốc Nghiệp.

The certificate is to acknowledge their excellent performance in Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) 2018.

Early this month, the Giang brothers left the British and Vietnamese television viewers speechless with their death-defying, head-balancing act of walking across tiny platforms suspended high off the ground in the finale of the British talent show.

Although they secured the fifth position and left the show empty-handed, the siblings have left a deep impression on both Vietnamese and international audiences, helping to project Việt Nam’s image to the international community.

Although they are new to the United Kingdom, the brothers became popular in Việt Nam after breaking the world record for the “most consecutive stairs climbed while balancing a person on the head” in Girona, Spain, in 2016.

Thirty-four-year-old Cơ and 29-year-old Nghiệp are nicknamed princes of Việt Nam’s acrobatics. To prepare for the risky and impressive feat in the finale of BGT, the duo underwent 15 years of strenuous training, suffering many injuries and going through emotional trauma in the process. — VNS
