A German, Kai Sandmeyer, who is 30 years old, has set a new world record for hula hooping!
He has done this in the so-called abdominal plank position in six minutes thirty-four seconds.
He commented as follows:
“The hardest part is the plank. I hardly notice the hula hoop, which I’ve known since childhood, so that’s really not the problem, but holding the plank for that long is very tiring and I had to properly train for it.”
In fact, Sandmeyer trained intensively before and after work to enable him to almost double the former record.

It is amazing what people do!
