First weekend Sunday 6th November, there is no wonder if I say Best Sunday ever because when most of us were busy being lazy on the quiet Sunday afternoon, where thousands of women got together at the JIO Garden, BKC, in Mumbai, to attempt the challenge to hold abdominal plank position for about 60 seconds to break the earlier the Guinness Book of World Records at Hongkong in the year 2011 of 1323 men and women. But the best part of this record was organized for only women. The movement called #DoYou which is the respect for women power also an opportunity and encouragement that women are strong to take any challenges.
The whole event was organized by one of the famous sports brand PUMA which was led by International model-actress Cara Delevingne. The screening was started at 5 pm where so many well-known celebrities of our Bollywood like Jacqueline Fernandez, Kalki Koechlin, model Ujjwala Raut, Singer and VJ Anushka Manchanda, RJ Malishka and Shibani Dandekar, Wrestling star & RioOlympic winner Sakshi Malik, Zomba Specialist and Master Trainer Sucheta Pal with her team were present at the whole event to cheer, motivate and celebrate the moment of joy with all the women participants.
After an announcement of all the guidelines by a member of the Guinness world record which needs to be followed by all the participants at the time of attempting abdominal plank position. The first official attempt has happened at 6.15pm by 1900 women. Then we enjoyed some Zomba session by Sucheta Pal and her team. Finally, when the results were announced was the happiest moment for all of us. We broke the earlier record with 1622 women attempted the abdominal plank challenge successfully.
Thankyou brand PUMA for organizing such a big event for Indian women. I am also feeling very proud for being a part of the Guinness World Record.
