Man who attempted 168-hour standing Marathon to break Guinness word record quits after 4 hours (Video)

Regrettably, Patrick Amenuvor has prematurely concluded his ambitious 168-hour Stand-a-thon, an individual marathon aimed at breaking the Guinness World Record. Patrick initiated this endurance feat on Sunday, January 14, with the goal of persisting until the 21st of the same month; however, he had to discontinue after only 4 hours.

The existing record for the longest standing is held by Akshinthala Seshu Babu, an Indian man who maintained a motionless posture in the likeness of Mahatma Gandhi for 25:01 hours in 2001 and 35 hours in 2002. He also attempted another record in 2015, lasting for 37 hours.

Patrick’s management released a statement elucidating the reasons behind the premature termination of his Stand-a-thon. According to the announcement, unforeseen electrical outages and technical complications disrupted the event within the specified time frame. The statement reads, “We regret to inform you that the continuation of the Stand-A-Thon has encountered insurmountable challenges, necessitating an official halt.”

The decision to cease the official Stand-A-Thon attempt was further explained in the statement. It was conveyed, “In adherence to the principles of integrity and fair play, we hereby disclose our intention to cease the OFFICIAL STAND-A-THON attempt. This decision stems from the acknowledgment of rule violations that could compromise the pursuit of breaking the record.”

Considering these developments, the management deems it necessary to conduct a comprehensive review. The objective is to rectify any oversights and prevent future errors that may impede subsequent attempts to break the record. The statement concludes with gratitude extended to all those who supported Patrick throughout this endeavor.
