I have been practicing wushu since 2005 and have now earned my third dan as a black belt. After seeing videos of record holders and reading several editions of the Guinness World Records book, I got inspired and worked towards record titles of my own, he told APP.

Mehsood said he trains for four to five hours daily in order to see his progress towards the goal. His aim is to promote his much neglected region, South Waziristan, and to represent a positive image across the globe.
