An athlete in India has nabbed a Guinness World Record for completing over 80 four-finger pushups in 1 minute.

According to news agency United Press International, Laithangbam Vidyasagar Singh is a former weightlifting champion.

Singh completed a total of 85 exercises with only two fingers from each hand touching the ground.

The record-breaker beat the previous record of 70 pushups in 1 minute by fellow India resident Deepak Shamra.

Accordingly, Singh previously set a world record when he connected 275 elbow strikes on a kick pad in 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, a man from the United States has broken a record for dribbling a basketball for a mile in 4 minutes and 33.73 seconds.

According to various reports, Dylan Sorensen is a track coach at the University of North Carolina.

Sorensen initially set the record in May, when he ran a mile in 4 minutes and 37 seconds while dribbling a basketball.

He then topped the record again, with a time of 4 minutes and 33.73 seconds, narrowly beating the current record.

The record attempt raised money for the FORevHer Tar Heels program, a nonprofit supporting female student athletes.
