Nigerian Man Begins 200-Hour Ironing Marathon Goal To Break Guinness World Record In Kogi

Dauda Abdulfatai, a Nigerian man, has begun a 200-hour ironing marathon with the goal of breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous ironing session.

SaharaReporters reports that Dauda started the marathon on Wednesday morning at Off Ajaokuta Road, Ganaja Village, Lokoja, Kogi State. His goal is to break the existing record of 100 hours held by Gareth Sander of the United Kingdom.

Gareth Sanders, 28, a cleaning company manager, broke the world record for non-stop ironing after ironing around 2,000 items and going flat-out for nearly 100 hours in 2015.

SaharaReporters also obtained an acceptance email issued to Dauda by the Guinness World Record allowing him to begin the contest to break the record.
