A man in the US state of Colorado has broken an unusual record by pushing a peanut up a mountain with his nose.
53-year-old Bob Salem from Colorado also made history by becoming the first person in the 21st Century to push a peanut up Pikes Peak with a contraption taped to his nose.
A video shared on Facebook by the City of Manitou Springs Government showed a part of Mr. Salem’s efforts that started on July 9. He took almost seven days to complete his task. A ceremonial finish took place on July 15. He was greeted by cheers, a letter from the City of Manitou Springs, and a letter from Mayor John Suthers with the City of Colorado Springs.
Speaking about his history-making feat, Mr Salem said, “There is no city like Manitou Springs. I am excited to be the one to bring around this bit of history to celebrate Manitou Springs’ 150th Celebration. I hope everyone takes the time to visit and indulge in the rich history the Pikes Peak area represents. You won’t want to leave.”
According to 9News, the previous record was eight days. A man had pushed a peanut up Pikes Peak with his nose 93 years ago. Since then, the challenge has been tackled a few times but never in the 21st Century.
