This girl’s core must be on FIRE!
Most people can barely hold a plank pose for more than a minute (or even at all) but Gabi Ury isn’t like most people!
This incredible 16-year-old decided to do the unthinkable and break the world record for longest plank!
Gabi has been longing for a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records since she was in 5th grade. But this feat wasn’t just about getting some name recognition for herself. She also wanted to raise money for a worthy cause while doing it!
So, on her sweet 16th birthday, Gabi organized a party like never before! Friends and family gathered to watch her plank AND donate to Children's Hospital Colorado! Growing up with a condition called VATER syndrome, Gabi wanted to give back to the place that gave so much to her!
So how long was Gabi able to hold her plank?
ONE HOUR AND 20 MINUTES!
How amazing is that?!?
Afterwards, Gabi was relieved that this was all over, saying:
“It feels really good to have broken a world record. I’m hoping that I’m never going to have to do this again!”
You’re incredible, gurl!
