Kenyan Chef Maliha Mohammed’s attempt to beat the record for the longest cooking marathon was thwarted by a medical issue.
Maliha began the challenge on November 15 with the goal of breaking the current 119-hour, 57-minute, and 16-second record, carefully updating supporters on her progress.
Her attempt to break Alan Fisher’s (Ireland) Guinness World Record took an unexpected turn when she experienced a medical issue after crossing the 111-hour mark.
Maliha was seen unconscious on a stretcher, being attended to by medical staff in a video uploaded on her Instagram stories.
Despite the setback, she was adamant that the emergency would not be the end of the culinary marathon.
“I am a conqueror and a marathon runner. Nothing is bringing us down; to the finish line, we go,” she wrote.
