A Chicago woman has created a world record by hula-hooping for 100 hours! While 29-year-old Jenny Doan has created the record but is waiting of Guinness World officials to authorise it. On Friday afternoon, Jenny had hula hooped for more than 83 hours. She completed 100 hours by beating the current record by 25 hours. Doan surpassed the current record which is at 74 hours and 54 minutes just before 10 am on Friday. Richard Browning Makes Guinness World Record for Achieving the Fastest Speed in Body-Controlled Jet Engine Powered Suit; Watch Other Videos of the Real-Life Iron Man.

Jenny Doan moved to Chicago in late March from her home in Perth, Western Australia. WTTW reported that since starting her marathon on Tuesday morning at a local bar, Doan said she only slept three hours. Although she enduring pain, she has managed to push through it and complete the task. While she was at the 67-hour mark, Doan was in intense pain due to lactic acid buildup in her legs, causing knee stiffness.

She gets a five-minute break every hour when she rests by sitting on the chair. Her supporters rub her legs to help with recovery. As the pain aggravated, she also began using knee braces and compression socks. She also listens to music, streams Netflix and texts her friends to keep going. World’s Largest Drawing Made by Aberdeenshire Artist Johanna Basford Enters Guinness Record Art (See Pictures)

However, there could be a discrepancy as to if Doan broke the 74-hour, 54-minute record or not as she dropped the hoop once. But she determined that the drop can be used as one her five-minute breaks. But a Guinness World Records spokesperson said, "The individual cannot drop the hula hoop and then proceed to request the use of the 5-minute break."

Doan's roommate Chris Vellucci, "It'll be an interesting discussion. I'd understand if she didn't have breaks accrued, then absolutely, it's a failed attempt. But having break time, that was her break. She had banked time to take a break "which involves dropping the hoop. Sometimes she'd catch it and throw it down (to start her other breaks)."
