Guinness World Records recognised the achievement of Egyptian Mahmoud Mohamed Ayoub, 23, as he broke the world record for the largest number of air steps in 30 seconds.

Ayoub took 56 air steps, breaking the previous world record of 51 steps, said the global foundation. 

The ceremony, which was held in front of the historical Temple of Hibis in Kharga Oasis in Egypt, was attended by the teaching staff of the New Valley University, from which Ayoub is a graduate, his sports coach and some of his friends.

Guinness World Records announced that Ayoub has amazing abilities that make him a candidate to break more records in the future. Ayoub succeeded in winning three titles before, two of them are still registered in his name. In addition to the new record, Ayoub holds the record for the biggest number of thumb exercises in one minute.

Mahmoud Ayoub adds a new title to his Guinness World Records.

Ayoub said, “I have a strong passion for sport, I am a graduate of the Department of Sports and Education at the New Valley University in Kharga Oasis in Egypt. I always thought that breaking a world record falls only within the capabilities of the superpowers, and it never occurred to me to be one of the record-breakers one day. Then I realised that the records are varied and different in terms of their specialisations and the time period required to be accomplished within them, and after research I found an opportunity to break some of them. It was an amazing feeling when my name was declared within the officially distinguished by the Guinness World Records. Now that I have set time-limited records, I look forward to smash many of them in the future.”

Ayoub is currently preparing for many other attempts, such as the highest number of push-ups on fingers with a weight of 40 pounds and another attempt for the same number with a weight of 60 pounds.
