Ahmad Amin Bodla sets highest martial arts kicks World Record

LAHORE: Pakistani Ahmad Amin Bodla on Thursday claimed to have broken the world record for the most number of martial arts kicks in one hour.

Bodla, who attempted the record at Children Library Complex in Lahore, managed 6,370 kicks in one hour. He broke the previous record of 2,982 kicks held by Indian Jayanth Reddy in 21 minutes and 46 seconds.

He had invited Guinness Book of World Records officials, but they had asked for 4,600 pounds to officiate the record attempt. He then asked local officials to look over it.

Bodla will now send the attempt video to Guinness Book of World Records, which can take up to six to seven months to verify.

Last year in October, Bodla had his name to the Guinness Book of World Records for highest number of kicks in one minute. Bodla had set a new Guinness Book record for 225 martial kicks in one minute. That record was also held by an Indian, soldier Sarwar Khatri, with 187 kicks in 2007.

Dubai Metro - Longest driverless metro network in the world

The Dubai Metro is the longest driverless metro network in the world

The Dubai Metro has made it to the Guinness Book of World Records, as the longest driverless metro network in the world, spanning 74.695 kilometers, officials announced on Tuesday.

The record has been set taking into account the combined length of the metro's Green and Red Lines.

The achievement is an addition to the one already made by the Dubai Metro Red Line in September 2011, when it set a new record as the longest driverless metro line in the world at 52 km.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), received the Guinness Certificate from Talal Omar, Regional Director of Guinness Book of World Records in the Middle East, at the RTA headquarters on Monday.

Al Tayer dedicated the achievement to His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who is the driving force of the Dubai Metro project.

"The implementation of the Dubai Metro project is a true testament to the vision of Shaikh Mohammed in uplifting the infrastructure of Dubai. He has been closely monitoring and directing all phases of the work progress in the project, and endorsed the suitable route from several alternatives presented," he said.

"He envisioned using the metro as a backbone linking various parts of Dubai city enabling commuters smooth mobility while enjoying a panoramic view of the city's landmarks," he said.

Parts of the track have been selected to be underground and others elevated to support this vision and to suit the urban layout of Dubai.

Shaikh Mohammad aimed to make the Dubai Metro the best in the world, since its inception. Cutting-edge technology in the rail industry was used, including an air-conditioning system in stations and trains.
