A 51-year-old has set a Guinness World Record by spending 36 hours rocking back and forth on a swing.
Identified as Richard Scott from England, the 51-year-old started swinging at 6:10 am at Loch Leven’s Larder cricket pitch and ended on Sunday evening, according to Guinness World Records.
During his attempt, Scott was allowed a five-minute break for each hour he spent on the swing. Scott used his breaks to take a nap at 3 am. The marathon swing experience broke the previous world record of 34 hours, which was set in 2020 by a man named Quinn Levy.
“It’s been good, the tops of my legs are a wee bit sore but apart from that, I’ve been fine. It’s been a good experience. It’s been challenging, but it’s been really good. I’m very excited,” Scott told a news outlet.
A video of the record-breaking event was shared online by the Rotary Club of Kinross and District, where Scott is a member.
Earlier this year, a Polish endurance enthusiast set a Guinness World Record after spending 3 hours and 28 minutes on ice.
Valerjan Romanovski climbed into a glass tank and remained in full-body contact with the ice for a whopping 208 minutes. The public event was held on the streets of Wilno, Lithuania.
The previous record was held by French national Romain Vandendorpe, who was submerged in ice for 2 hours, 35 minutes, and 33 seconds. Valerjan shattered the record after training for six months, according to Guinness World Records.
