An Australian man now holds the Guinness World Record for the longest-held prank, after staying in position for 9 hours and 30 minutes.
Daniel Scali set the record in Adelaide, Australia, last month. The previous record was held by George Hood, who held the plank positions for 8 hours and 15 minutes in the US last year.
Scali suffers from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and breaking the record for the longest-held plank was especially challenging for him.
“When I was 12 years old, I fell off my trampoline causing a severe break in my left arm and as a result I live with a condition called CRPS,” he was quoted by the Guinness World Record.
During the plank, he wore a compression band on his left arm to try and alleviate the pain.
“Obviously putting constant pressure on my elbow and forearm, up to my shoulder did give me quite a bit of grief at the start,” Scali said, but he was able to break the previously-held record of the longest plank.
