Indian men, Dr. Ali Irani and Sujoy Kumar Mitra, have set the world record for travelling around seven continents in just three days. The travelers have broken the previous Guinness World Record for the quickest time to visit all seven continents in just 73 hours.
The Indian duo completed their journey in 3 days, 1 hour, 5 minutes, and 4 seconds. Dr Khawla Al Romaithi of the UAE formerly held the record, which she set in February 2020, and was 3 days, 14 hours, 46 minutes, and 48 seconds.
Beginning on December 4, the Indian men covered Antarctica, South America, Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Oceania in the shortest and fastest time possible. Their journey came to an end in Melbourne, Australia on December 7.
On his Instagram page, Dr. Ali also posted the Guinness World Records certificate. The post’s caption read, “In Guinness Book Of World Records.”
Dr Ali Irani has served as a physiotherapist for the Indian cricket team. He has, so far, travelled to 90 countries. Sujoy Mitra quit the corporate world to travel. He has travelled to 173 countries. Dr. Irani called his recent achievement to be a great pleasure and privilege. Creating a world record by doing something they were both greatly passionate about was a humbling experience, he added.
