Have you ever heard of Suresh Joachim? Not many people have, but according to Wikipedia he now holds at least 58 world records; he has even broken some of his own. His achievements are documented in the Guinness Book of World Records.
In his most recent accomplishment Suresh Joachim has broken his own Guinness world record for nonstop broadcast-television watching, clocking 72 hours. He had previously set a record of 69 hours, 48 minutes, in 2005.
“I feel fine, I drank between 25 and 30 cups of coffee,” Joachim said.
Joachim, a Sri Lanka native who lives in Toronto, watched three seasons of the drama series “24” featuring Kiefer Sutherland, said Swedish TV4 spokeswoman Janina Witkowski.
Joachim has set world records in dancing, bowling, running, broadcasting and even at his own marriage ceremony where the wedding featured a record 79 bridesmaids, a record 47 groomsmen, and a record 60.09 m (197 ft 1 in) long wedding bouquet, held by the bride.
One would think that Joachim was satisfied with these accomplishments……but he has set even bigger goals for himself.
