Why are so many people standing around staring blankly? They’re waiting. Waiting for a Guinness Record to be made.
Penang has had no shortage of Malaysian Guinness Book of Record records, but this one actually required some amount of effort! The record was the pull a somewhat heavy SUV a good 51 metres in distance, using only a finger.
The index finger, to be precise.
Yes, this car (Toyota Alphard, in case you were wondering).
The official entry in the Malaysia Book of Records is the “Longest Distance Vehicle Pull with Index Finger” by a Woman.
Organised by Orient Fitness Penang (the one that is no longer at Gurney Paragon), this record setting event was in aid of D’Home Mental Health Association. Isn’t that heart warming? Or I suppose head warming.
Looks rather daunting, doesn’t it?
Well the happy faces clearly indicate that a record was set. And indeed it was – in fact, it was shattered into little pieces! The new distance was over 70 metres!
Behold our champion!
You could say her fingers have been itching for action since her last attempt.
Well, finger. Singular.
