Ohio man attempts world record with fist pumping

Published:

AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- A northeast Ohio man is hoping hours of fist pumping will land him a world record.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/KWWgou ) reports 34-year-old James Peterson of Green completed 16 hours of fist pumping in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the longest continuous fist-pumping motion.

The newspaper reports Peterson, an unemployed electrician, began Friday and finished early Saturday morning.

Peterson says he super-glued his hand into a clenched fist to make sure his every pump was documented correctly by a video crew. He says the footage will be submitted to Guinness officials.
