By performing multiple events continuously since morning till the afternoon, Abhijit Baruah of Jorhat could successfully set another record.

At 7.45 am on October 14, 2012, Abhijit started his first feat ‘non-stop running’ from the Jorhat Stadium to Sivsagar on NH- 37. Abhijit reached his destination Gaurisagar (In Sivsagar) at 11.45 am and from there he took on his next feat ‘cycling’ at 11.57 am. The cycling feat ended at the Jorhat stadium at 2.57 pm. The total distance covered in the 7 hours (cycling + running) was 99 kms.  From there, he took on the next feats ‘push ups’, ‘sits ups’, ‘5 minutes boxing’, ‘running for 200 meters while carrying  a lot of 40 kg on his shoulders’ and at last he completed his feat ‘barefoot running’. He performed 27 full pushups in 21 seconds starting at 3 pm and then performed 20 sit ups in 16 seconds at 3.01 pm. After that, he did boxing for 5 minutes on a punch pad from 3.04 pm till 3.09 pm. Then at 3.14 pm, he ran for a distance of 200 m carrying a sandbag weighing 40 kg in 1 minute 44 seconds and from there he returned back on barefoot (covering 200 m) in 36 seconds. Thus he ended his day by covering 7 skills of endurance one after the other in 7 hours and 37 minutes. During the entire course he did not stop even for a single moment. The India Book of Records has included his feat as a new kind of record with multiple events.
