Portuguese Impossibility Challenger Video

In the Sports Stadium of Leiria, the International Sri Chinmoy Centres presented another edition of IMPOSSIBILITY CHALLENGER, an event where people with special skills could transcend themselves and establish a Guinness or even a World Record. This video shows some highlights of the event which took place on December 7, 2014.

Impossibility Challenger in Portugal: Many new World and Guinness Records

Last weekend another edition of the International Impossibility Challenger Games took place in the Sports Stadium of Leiria, Portugal, organized by the Sri Chinmoy Centre Portugal with the help of friends from all over Europe. Many personal, World and Guinness records have been established. Here are some of them:

The Czech Republic has strong men! One of them showed his capacities in Leiria and astonished the audience. Radek Rosa made three personal records. First he pulled a bus filled with  17 people for 40m with only his body power in just 57.75 seconds. The total weight was 6243.5 kg. Secondly he pulled a truck filled with people with a total wight of 6155 kg for 20m in 36.26 seconds and last but not least he showed an amazing feast by pulling a huge tractor with 9.5 t for 20m in only 1 min and 29.75 seconds!

Vaibhava2

Vaibhava Jewgenij Kuschnow from Austria set a new World Record which is at the same time a Guinness World Record attempt by performing 10 consecutive shots hitting the target, achieving 64 points, while balancing on a slack line. The slack line was stretched between two cars in a hight of 0.93m and the target was 18 m away. But that was not enough. For his second World Record Vaibhava combined climbing and inline skating! He successfully climed up a climbing wall with inline skates on 3 different UIAA routes. He was successful on his first attempts. He climbed level 5 in 41.6 seconds, level 6 in 48.4 seconds and level 7- in 55.63 seconds! In an interview on Saturday Vaibhava said that he uses positive visualisation and meditation to prepare for his records.

Charuhasi

Charuhasi Eckhard Schröder is a banker from Germany. He is also a lover of spiritual poetry and performed a stunning World Record by reciting 3148 poems (!) by memory during a period of 34 hours. All of the recited poems were written by the accomplished poet Sri Chinmoy. (I am trying to learn Sri Chinmoy’s special slection of 207 poems and am now at only 33 poems by heart, so I can really appreciate this record! – editorial note).

Albert Jamie Walter is already the second generation of Impossibility Challenger participants. Already his father Ruedi participated in the event in the 1980’s. They both specialized in the tearing of telephone directories. Albert has successfully attempted a new World Record (and will also submit this record to the Guinness book of records): he was able to tear apart a huge Munich telephone directory of 1551 pages with his bare hands in only 9,38 seconds!

Laugh

Laughing is healthy. So the Escola do Riso yoga club from Coimbra tried to get together the largest Laughter Yoga Class which they achieved with 78 participants, which is a new World Record. They established a second World Record by holding the longest Laughter Yoga class for 2 hours and 53minutes with a total of 7 participants.

Hugo Rito from Portugal tried to establish a new personal record in retro-running. Unfortunately the temperatures in the stadium were quite low (only 3 degree) and he had to stop after achieving a half-maration in 2:51:06 hours.

The stadium of Leiria is quite impressive, with a capacity of about 29.000 seats, a height of over 30 meters and a beautiful view to the historic castle. Núcleo de Espeleologi a de Leiria made use of the height of the stadium. The group achieved 168 climbs (27m each) on ropes  of 4536 m up and 4536 m down and reached a total distance of 9072 m.

Juventude Vidigalense from Portugal organized the largest 400 m relay and established a new World Record. A total of 106 tall, small, young, old, fast and slow but fully inspired runners participated with a time of 2:40:12 h.

Jorge Cardinali is a Portuguese circus artist. He wanted to test his patience in this record and had three china plates spinning on grounded sticks for a total of 4:13:34 hours simultaneously. With this he achieved a new World Record.

Peace

Peace and harmony are two qualities we all would like to see spread around the globe. Nuno Figueiredo organized a drawing exhibition with 7095 A4 drawings that were exhibited in the corridors of the stadium. Over 50 schools have participated in this nationwide Portuguese event. The creativity and love the over 7000 children put to paper was moving and inspiring for all visitors! The exhibition can still be seen for the next three weeks.

Carlos Manuel Viera is a fire fighter from Leiria and a very enduring cyclist. He set a new World Records cycling 15:13:55 h on rollers on top of a fire truck in the Leiria Stadium. This is a true testimonial for stamina, patience and self-transcendence!

Over the weekend, a special display of Sri Chinmoy’s lifting equipment were made available for public viewing in the prominent main station in Zurich. Thousands of people passed the stand which was part of an exhibition on promoting good health. Within the display were 3 TV screens that featured weight-lifting videos and the famous documentary “Challenging Impossibility”. The exhibition is a travelling museum and has visited many cities around US and Europe. The exhibition shows the weightlifting machines that Sri Chinmoy used for hoisting immense weights with his  arms, legs and shoulders. This includes a staggering 2,600 lb standing calf raise, a unique apparatus for lifting individuals overhead, and a 800 lb bench press.  A gallery of photos and short films  documenting these extraordinary feats of strength completes the display.
