“When I started my career, I never imagined such an opportunity and challenge would present itself. 

“I’m confident of achieving the record,” he said through an interpreter here yesterday. 

Documentation as well as video and photographic evidence will be submitted over the next fortnight. 

Official certification is expected within several months.
