INDIAN EXPAT ATTEMPTS GUINNESS RECORD.
An Indian expatriate working in Muscat is attempting to break the world record for jumping jacks, a physical jumping exercise, which has been in practice for centuries.
Mohammed Ali, a salesman with an FMCG company in the capital area, recently performed the act in front of a big gathering and evaluators at Nesto Hypermarket in Wadi Kabir where he made 57 leaps in 30 seconds.
'I have sent the video of my jumping jacks performance to the Guinness Book of World Records for their approval and entry into the next edition of the same,' Ali said.
Jumping jacks is a physical jumping exercise performed by jumping to a position with the legs spread wide and the hands touching overhead, and then returning to a position with the feet together and the arms at the sides.
Raymond Butler (US) holds the Guinness World Record for number of star jumps in one minute at 77.
