Mark James has done it again. James, whose record-breaking feats we have spotlighted numerous times, has broken the world record for longest non-stop squash rally. James and Edinburgh squash pro Simon Boughton easily passed the previous best of 1,000 shots to set an impressive new record of 2,526. The rally, which lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes, and 28 seconds, took place at Edinburgh Sports Club in Scotland earlier this month.
Mark, son of long-time Nyumbani supporter Alison Stedman, has previously broken squash world records for most consecutive squash matches played non-stop and longest squash marathon. With each record attempt, Mark raises money for charity, particularly Nyumbani. Throughout all his campaigns, he has raised thousands of pounds for Nyumbani. He is a great example of creative fundraising – marrying hobby with giving back.
Remarkable, Mark has already set his sights on his next goal – regaining his first record (longest consecutive squash matches) which was broken in Finland by another duo last year. He hopes to break the new record of 100 matches in March, with a goal of 150 matches!
We congratulate Mark on his latest world record and we are extremely grateful for his continuous generosity! We will be rooting for him in March!
