KARACHI: Rashid Naseem attempted a record in the memory of late Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara and it has now been approved by the Guinness World Records.
Rashid surpassed China’s record of removing most playing cards between two balanced bottles with a nunchaku in one minute. The previous record was 14, achieved by Xie Desheng of China.
Rashid removed 19 cards to break this record and register his 65th world record in the Guinness records book.
In a video message, the Pakistani martial artist said that this record was dedicated to the late Sadpara who represented Pakistan in mountaineering across the world.
“I attempted this record for late Sadpara who went missing during an attempt to climb K2 in winter,” he said.
