He is Sydney's Bear Grylls, a former advertising guru who beat special forces officers at their own game. Bondi local Marcus Bottay, 44, recently broke the Guinness World Record for the five metre rope climb - an extreme body weight strength test measured by how many times you can climb up and down a five metre cord using only your hands.

In September, the personal trainer climbed 27.8 metres in 60 seconds, smashing the previous record of 19.2 metres.

"I was absolutely ecstatic because it's considered an elite world record," he said. "The only people who are capable of going for it are Oympians, gymnasts, acrobats and special forces units and people at that level."

The dad of two trains for two hours, three times a week, to stay in shape.

"Rope climbing is one of those sports where your finger tips have to be as strong as your forearms," Mr Bottay said.

"My daughters Jasmine and Willow helped me train for the world record. They would hop on my shoulders as I did thousands of chin ups, push ups and sit ups."

Lebanon flag - world's Largest National flag set Guinness world record 2011

BEIRUT - Having breezed through several world records in the culinary field Lebanon has now gone for the big one -- the world's largest national flag, and so huge it needed an airfield.

The Lebanese military on Sunday released a picture taken from the air of the massive flag, stitched in Kuwait, assembled in Lebanon and covering 65,000 square metres (645,600 square feet) "unfurled."

Morocco is the current holder of the Guinness world record for the largest flag, at a mere 60,000 square metres, a Lebanese military spokesman said.

Now Lebanon's bid for the title has been displayed at Rayak air base in the east of the country, in the presence of a representative of the "Guinness World Records" book.

The country's green cedar emblem in the flag's centre alone covers an area of 10,452 square metres, the same figure as the country's surface area in square kilometres.

Tiny Lebanon has both a troubled past and a history of setting the bar high in the record-breaking department.

It already holds records for the largest tabbouleh salad (more than three and a half tonnes, or 7,000 pounds) and has also served up a two-tonne platter of the chickpea-based dip hummus.

Non-vegetarians are catered for as well: in August last year Lebanon gained an entry in the Guinness book for producing the largest ever kebbe -- a dish of minced meat and cracked wheat.

Now it would appear to have cracked the flag record too.

The top seed's win had local fans on their feet, 24 hours after the despair of seeing Indian glamour girl Sania Mirza lose the women's singles final in a deciding tie-break to Anastasia Rodionova of Australia.

"A gold medal is tough to come by. I'm happy I got mine. I've worked really hard. Right now, I'm really happy," Devvarman said

"I'm not going to lie, I got a little nervous. It's one of the best feelings for sure. It's a great honour to play for my country."

Devvarman, who has broken into the ATP top 100 this year after a successful US college career, had yet to drop a set all week, but he found fifth seed Jones a handful to start with.

But after pocketing the first set with a single break, he took total command of the second, running off five games games in a row with two breaks of serve to lead 5-0.

He briefly stumbled at match point on his following serve allowing Jones a brief respite, but two games later he completed the rout sparking off noisy celebrations in the stadium.

Jones said he had not been too bothered by a slight leg muscle strain he received at the start of the second half but that the big crowd had unnerved him at times.

"The crowd was a little intimidating. I don't think I was comfortable out there," he said.

Tennis was included in the Games for the first time at New Delhi.
