Delay due to a faltering video system
Martin Hummel had to submit an application to take a shot at a new world record. His application arrived at Guinness World Records in September 2020 and was approved two months later. In April 2021, the Dutchman then decided to actually start his attempt. Guinness World Records had two witnesses at all times during the record attempt. In addition, Hummel had to record a video of the total record attempt of 48 hours. You can see excerpts of the video on the website corporateconnection.in. However, due to a faltering video system, the attempt had to be checked several times. In February 2022, Hummel then received official recognition after all.
