Mark Kenny loves to challenge himself, and it is by challenging himself he is also inspiring others to push themselves and believe that anything can be possible with hard work, belief and determination.

It’s also about an inherent need in many to want to do something incredible and leave a lasting impact on more than just ones own inner circles.

“This is my 3rd successful World Record attempt as I also completed a 50m inverted sprint and have walked the fastest walking down 77 steps on one hand! This time I felt like pulling a car,” Kenny told Newsivity.

And that’s exactly what he did this month; Kenny slipped on a pair of blue and grey gardening gloves, attached a thick red strap around his waist, and placed his palms on the ground to attempt one of the toughest stength and endurance challenge yet… and he successfully set a brand new world record whilst doing so!

It’s certainly not expected to be his last challenge, and it’s certainly going to take much to better his latest strength and endurance stunt, but beyond the stunt itself it is the substance and desire to give something positive to others that gets our thumbs up and respect!

Kenny, from Plymouth County in Massachusetts, USA told Newsivity about how his latest world record attempt felt and also described the reasons he was able to stay motivated during the stunt:

“It was such a great day, and I wanted to show the kids at the summer camp where I attempted this world record that anything is possible. Around 300 – 400 kids spectated from the summer camp, and they ended up becoming my inspiration by cheering me on,” Kenny told Newsivity.

Kenny began training to walk on his hands at age 11. He first earned his title as a record-breaking hand-walker in 1994 when he ran a 50-meter dash on his hands, in 16.9 seconds.

In 1997, Kenny was awarded a second world record when he hand walked down 77 steps in 39.04 seconds.

In 1999, Kenny hand-walked down 1,200 steps of the Citicorp Building in Manhattan in 51 minutes and 21 seconds to capture a new world-record.

Most recently, in 2014, Kenny captured a World Record for hand-walking down 77 steps at Patriot Place in Foxboro in 30 seconds.

But the world record really isn’t the sole focus for us, it is the positive sentiments underlying Kenny’s motivation to be incredible that we feel are the most important factors from all of Kenny’s great achievements.

So thanks for the inspiration Mark, and it makes us happy that you are amongst a growing number of people around the world who do great things for others to follow in their belief that anything really can be possible if we try hard enough.

A big high five from us, and we can’t wait to hear what you are planning next time!!
