On Wednesday morning August 24th! I did another charity sit-up for the "Special Needs Children", and I achieved 4,400 sit-ups in exactly 1 hour and 45 minutes without stopping. This was in front of a witness came from out side to oversee it with 2 former world boxing champion Julius Francis and Colin McCullen. This will now be my new world record, and it was also video tape to send to the Guinness Books of Record. So hopefully, they will look at it, and accept it as a world record, especially for my age at 53.
From the world boxing council to Robert:

Also, I know I can do more, because I have done 4,500 during this year so far. Nevertheless, I have done it and that is the main thing.
