Kenyan Chef Maliha Mohammed, in her attempt to break the record for the longest cooking marathon, faced a setback when she experienced a medical emergency.
Maliha, who commenced the challenge on November 15, has been keeping her fans updated on her progress in trying to surpass the current Guinness World record of 119 hours, 57 minutes, and 16 seconds, achieved by Alan Fisher (Ireland) in Matsue, Shimane, Japan, from September 28 to October 3, 2023.
Before the medical emergency, Maliha had just passed the 111-hour mark. She shared a video on her Instagram stories, showing her lying on a stretcher attended to by what appeared to be medical personnel.
In the video, she was unconscious but conveyed that the emergency wouldn’t mark the end of the challenge.
“I am a conqueror and a marathon runner. Nothing is bringing us down; to the finish line, we go,” she wrote
