Maniur youth Yambem Gobin Singh wrote his name in the Guinness Book of World Records for his elbow strikes of 275 knock achieved in a duration of one minute.
The Guinness officials had acknowledged Gobin Singh’s feat and sent a visual certificate proof where the certificate read as ‘Broken the most full contact elbow strikes in one minute (alternate elbows) is 275, achieved by Yambem Gobin Singh (India) in Manipur, India on August 17, 2018’, according to a report in ifp.co.in.
A visibly elated Yambem Gobin Singh to have achieved this feat was, however, quoted as saying that he would like to better his record in the coming days or make new attempts.
The previous world record for elbow strikes was made by Prabhakar Reddy of India with 330 strikes but in three minutes on March 20 earlier this year.
The former kick boxer Yambem Gobin Singh has attempted the Guinness World Records in elbow strike before a select panel of judges including coaches at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex in Imphal, according to the report.
Notably, Singh has also made another world record attempt in ‘knuckle push up’ and ‘jumping Jack’ on October 13 last results of which are awaited from Guinness Book of World Records authorities.
