Sin­ga­porean breaks world record for most num­ber of pull-ups

Asian Journal - - Asia -

Sin­ga­pore: A Sin­ga­porean teenager Yeo Kim Yeong, who was ob­sessed with pull-ups at the age of 15, broke the world record for the most num­ber of pull-ups done in one minute, The Strait Times re­ported on Tues­day. The young boy man­aged 44 pull-ups in a minute, two more than the pre­vi­ous record of 42 set by Amer­i­can David Bour­don, ac­cord­ing to the Guin­ness World Record. Yeo said he set his mind on set­ting a world record and that he al­ways be­lieved that noth­ing was im­pos­si­ble. He trained un­der pro­fes­sional guid­ance for over a year.
