Pakistan's 8-year-old gymnast Jasim Mehsud had broken the Guinness World Record of the 22 cup-ups in 30 seconds by doing 27 in the time limit.

Talking to the 24@9 programme, his instructor Irfan Mehsud said that Jasim was a talented kid and made the world record in Dera Ismail Khan on July 2. Irfan said that Jasim’s goal was to become an international martial arts record holder.

He was of the view that the government should provide facilities and opportunities to these amazingly talented kids who were real gems in the gymnasium.  

Irfan said that despite all odds, his student made a world record. 

Pertinent to note that Jasim who was the first to break this record at the world level was the student of 43-time Guinness World Record holder Irfan Mehsud who also hailed from South Waziristan.

He said that another five students of his have registered their names in the Guinness World Records.
