Adrian Vodislav, Adrian Barbu, Gbi Moraru and Dan Lazar have reportedly got together to break the world record for the longest padel match played so far.
The foursome played without a break over a 25-hour period in Bucharest, thus staking their claim into an entry into the Guinness World Records. The display was supervised by seven officials from the Guinness World Records.
The officials will now go through the entire recording of the display before ratifying the feat as a new record after going through all other modalities. The entire process may take up to six months.
During the record-breaking effort, players were allowed to take a 90-second break at the end of each game, and a two-minute breather at the end of each set.
“This was one huge effort from each of us. We want to thank all the people who came out and stayed awake along with us to support our cause. We went through several states at the same time. At some point we thought we had all the energy, and yet at the same time we felt we couldn’t push it any more,” Adrian Vodislav said.
The record-breaking event also had a humane angle to it: the four players were in it to raise funds for two projects led by ‘Save The Children Romania’ charity. At the end of the event, the four-some managed to raise 3,100 euros (AED 12,800) for the cause.
“It is a good feeling to be able to do something like this for a noble cause where our children stand to benefit,” he added.
