About the author:

Nirbhasa is originally from Ireland but currently lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. He is an enthusiastic multi-day runner, having twice completed both the Ten Day Race and the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race - the longest race in the world.

Abhinabha Tangerman from just recieved confirmation from Guinness World Records for the most one-handed claps in a minute - an astonishingly fast 427! Abhinabha, a member of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team from Holland, set the record at the Impossibility-Challenger record breaking festival in Germany.

Abhinabha is also a very fast marathon runner, with a current best of 2:27, and holds the current record for our 12 hour invitational walking race in April at 65 miles. The record has gotten quite a lot of attention recently, which Abhinabha admits to being a little surprised by. He was introduced to the world of record breaking by his friend Ashrita Furman, also a Sri Chinmoy Marathon team member, who currently holds more Guinness World Records than any other person.
