Elisha Nochomovitz has probably become the first person in the world to run a marathon on a balcony.
Nochomovitz ran 42.2km (26.2 miles) back and forth, never leaving his 7 metre-long balcony.
He shared images of the feat online as a way to extend his support to medical personnel who were doing an “exceptional job” with COVID-19.
He also wanted to lighten the mood. “It was about launching a bit of a crazy challenge and bringing a bit of humour” he said.
He didn’t exactly make record time.
It took him six hours and 48 minutes. He got nauseous and worried the neighbours would complain about the pounding of his footsteps. But he did it.
