Renowned martial arts athlete, Irfan Mehsood, made the nation proud after he became the first Pakistani to achieve 100 Guinness World Records in eight years.

Hailing from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Mehsood completed his century by breaking the record of Marcello Ferri of Italy, who set a world record by lifting 56kgs with his toes. However, Mehsood broke the record by lifting 63kgs.

The Waziristan-born athlete also set records for Marshall Pushups, Squats, Jumping Jacks, Step Ups, Knee Strikes, Elbow Strikes, Side Jumps, High Jumps, Star Champs and other categories.

34-year-old marshal artist broke the record of athletes from the world's 16 countries, including the US, Great Britain, India, China, Norway, Germany, France, Finland, Philippines, Spain, Italy, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, and Syria.

Mehsood, who received the Presidential Award for Good Performance in 2023, trained many students, of which 16 also made Guinness World Records.

Irfan Mehsood also ran Lion’s Den Fight Club, and he planned to extend its branches to foreign countries. Last year, after achieving 70 records, he expressed his wish to open a branch in UAE. 

An old report of Arab News quoted Mehsood as saying, “We have two branches of the club in Dera Ismail Khan, I plan to open its branches in Dubai because the Kingdom has been turning into an international hub for martial arts.”
