Croatian breaks Guinness record in ‘car-pushing’ Izvor: Davorin Visnjic/PIXSELL

Although he had already broken the Guinness record in ‘car-pushing’ on Sunday morning in Zagreb at about 7:30, Tomislav Lubenjak continued to push the car until 3:20 pm, and ended up covering a distance of 106,9 kilometres - 24,7 kilometres more than the record set before.

Lubenjak began his quest on Saturday, with the aim to cover 100 kilometres. He was supposed to push a car which weighs at least 730 kilograms and cover the distance from 3 pm on Saturday to 3 pm on Sunday, only taking five or six-minute breaks each hour.

He prepared for it for nine months.

The previous record, set by Poland’s Przemyslaw Marczewski at 82,28 kilometres, was already broken in the morning, but Lubenjak was determined to push the car for a full 24 hours.

This is how the young man ended up breaking another record - the one for two people pushing a car held previously by two Macedonians, Aleksandar Chekorov and Aleksandar Smilkov and set at 95,07 kilometres. Lubenjak beat them pushing the car alone.

And not only that.

Lubenjak’s grandmother, Marica Leskovac, proudly sat in the car for the final stretch of the trip.

She said that her grandson finally fulfilled her dream - to be part of the breaking of a world record, although she is 76.

“I just needed a little push,” she joked.
