The Egyptian young man Mahmoud Mohamed Ayoub (23 years old) succeeded in achieving the record for the most number of air steps within 30 seconds, in an achievement recognized by Guinness Records, the official authority for monitoring and recording records around the world.
The global foundation said that Ayoub achieved 56 air steps, breaking the previous world record, which stood at 51 steps.
Guinness World Records said that Mahmoud Ayoub possesses distinctive ingredients that make him a candidate to break more records in the future, as the Egyptian youth succeeded in winning three titles before, two of whom are still registered in his name until now. In addition to the new number, Ayoub holds the record for the most number of thumb exercises in a minute.
The ceremony, which was held in front of the historic Hibs Temple in the Egyptian city of Kharga, witnessed a member of the faculty of the New Valley University, from which Ayoub, his sports coach and some of his friends graduated.
