Malaysian Indian sisters set new endurance record

Four-year-old Thurgashree Thanabalasingam made the "most sit-ups ever done by a child", while her elder sister Logasree, 8, got an entry for "heaviest weight lifted by two little fingers".

Thurgashee, a pint-sized kindergarten student from Bukit Mertajam, did 1,111 sit-ups in 31 minutes and 21 seconds.

Logasree, who is a standard two student, lifted 21 kg weight with two fingers for over 10 seconds.

The event was jointly organised by the Seberang Perai Tengah Weightlifting Association and Malaysian Indian Congress Youth, New Straits Times reported Friday.

Their father and trainer M. Thanabalasingam, 37, said his two daughters had undergone many months of training, putting in about four hours of work a day. "I am proud of their achievements."

Officiating the event was Human Resource Minister S. Subramaniam and Malaysia Book Of Records founder Danny Ooi who presented certificates to the sisters.
