Yesterday, Vajin Armstrong (NZ) won the prestigious Swiss Alpine Marathon in Davos with a time of 6:25:23 h, followed by Evgenii Glyva (UKR) with 6:41:17 h and Bernhard Eggenschiler (CH) with 6:44:11 h. 35 year old Vajin is a member of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team (SCMT) and meditation was certainly the key factor to win this competition with a length of 76 k and a difference of altitude of 2560 m! Bravo Vajin!

Guinness World Records’ most prolific record breaker Ashrita Furman, a student of Sri Chinmoy, has achieved yet another title this month, after a successful attempt at the Longest duration balancing a bicycle on the chin. Ashrita carefully placed the saddle of his bike onto his chin and managed to keep it there without touching it with his hands for an incredible 2 min 1.45 sec. The attempt took place in Uherske Hradiste in the Czech Republic, in front of an audience of cheering children. The bike was an unmodified Super Course Raleigh and weighed 12.05 kg.
