Michal Kapral from Canada broke the world record in marathon jogging Sunday, running three hours and seven minutes while juggling three balls.
The 33-year-old Toronto man beat the previous record of three hours and 20 minutes set by Norwegian Paul-Erik Lillholm in August 2000.
At the end of the race in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, an exhausted but elated Kapral admitted that balancing running and juggling posed its challenges.
"The race was really good for the first half of it and then I became very tired (and) started dropping the balls a lot...When you get tired and you're still having to juggle, it's 10 times, 20 times harder than when you get tired and you're (just) running," he said.
Kapral trained intensively for four months prior to the race. He joggled a total of 60 kilometers a week, running about one hour daily with his Sunday runs going up to three and a half hours long.
Kapral, nicknamed The Joggler, had another Guinness record. Last fall, he ran the fastest marathon while pushing his daughter in a stroller. They rolled in at two hours and 49 minutes, breaking the old record by almost 10 minutes.
