A Chinese bidder set a new record Sunday for money spent on a racing pigeon: 1,252,000 euros, or about $1,420,225, according to PIPA, a Belgium-based website dedicated to the sport.

Two Chinese bidders were competing for Armando, described by PIPA as Belgium’s “best long distance bird of all time.”

The final bid is more than double the price of the previous record, 376,000 euro, according to PIPA.
