The two athletes who have lost 3h in marathon juggling
In the end, There is Guinness Record for all tastes. Of the most bizarre and unlikely that comes to mind, too. Insurance. From having the most developed ear hairs in the world (an Indian came to 25cm) to eat the largest number of scorpions in less time (the record is held by a Saudi, who sampled 22 in just a couple of minutes). But in this 'post' we will focus on the only two men on the face of the earth who have been able to lose three hours in marathon juggling. Almost nothing.
Kapral and Warren ... 4 / km juggling up to four balls!
In a 'post' brought to us by the companions of 'Canadian Running', we can investigate that those two men who have achieved such a feat respond to the names of Michal Kapral and Zach Warren. Among them, eye on the data, they have done it more than eight times. This information comes in handy because it turns out that last weekend Michael Bergeron, friend of Kapral, tried to achieve the record in the distance of 5,000 meters, but he and his juggler balls were only eight seconds away from the feat.
Kapral stopped the clock at 2:50:12 in Toronto
Kapral, who has 3,430 followers on Twitter and he hangs spectacular videos of his training at full speed while juggling four and even five balls, he boasts on his profile that it is the current Guinness World Record of marathon juggling with a time of 2:50:12. Which is the same, running at 4km a minute. Brutal.
In his 'Twitter' account, Kapral recently recalled where all these sub-marathon marathons have achieved: Boston (2:58), Toronto (2:57), Philadelphia (2:52), Salt Lake City (2:53). , Salt Lake City (2:57), Toronto (2:50), Trapline (2:59) and Chicago (2:55). In addition, he adds another curious fact and that is that Warren, who turns out to be a physicist specialized in the investigation of laughter, has estimated that they have caused about 30,000 smiles or laughter among the spectators.
Bergeron, 'recordman' of 10k and a half marathon
Bergeron, the friend of Kapral who was nothing to beat the record of 5k, it turns out that in October of 2018 he snatched the record from Kapral himself in half marathon with a time of 1:17:09. He did it in Toronto and Kapral's previous mark was 1:20:40. Bergeron also holds the 10k record with 35:36. In short, an authentic barbarity ...
