Kenyan Chef Maliha Mohammed faced a setback today while attempting to break the Guinness world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
The chef who commenced the challenge on November 15, reportedly fainted due to fatigue after just passing the 111-hour mark.
Maliha is targeting to cook for over 140 hours and beat the current record which stands at 119 hours, 57 minutes, and 16 seconds.
Alan Fisher broke the longest cooking marathon record by cooking for 119 hours and 57 minutes, surpassing the former record set by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci by over 24 hours.
In the video shared on social media, she was unconscious but conveyed that the emergency wouldn't mark the end of the challenge.
"I am a conqueror and a marathon runner. Nothing is bringing us down; to the finish line, we go," she wrote.
She also updated her fans on her progress where she declared she was totally fine and ready to break the record.
"I'm well now. Thanks to my physician who did a checkup but am back to business 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾."
Chef Maliha broke the Guinness world record for the longest home kitchen cooking marathon in August after cooking for 95 hours nonstop.
She officially surpassed the previous record held by American chef Rickey Lumpkin of California, who achieved a home cooking time of 68 hours, 30 minutes, and 1 second in December 2018.
Kenyans are behind her as she attempts to break the new record. Among celebrities who have shown up at her cookathon include: Flaqo, Lit Boy, 2Mbili, Bien among others.
All the best chef Maliha.
