Kelly Gneiting holds the Guinness world record for the heaviest Person to Complete a Marathon. The 40 year old, former sumo wrestling champion finished 2011 L.A marathon in a time of 9 hours, 48 minutes and 52 seconds.
Kelly showed everyone how tough it is to finish a 26 mile marathon.
- He weighed 400P at the start and weighed 396.2 pounds after the marathon.
- Gneiting jogged the first eight miles and walked the final 18, saying afterward that he lost track of where he was after mile 10 because he felt delirious.
Kelly, A hard days’ work!
Never Say Die Spirit
“I was really struggling in the last five miles,” he said, “but I said to myself, ‘If I have to crawl, I will.'”
THAT’S THE SPIRIT!!
