China plank: Policeman sets eight-hour world record
A Chinese policeman has set a new Guinness World Record for the plank position.
In a contest which featured the previous record-holder, Mao Weidong remained in the position for eight hours, one minute and one second.
The plank is a core strength exercise that involves maintaining a position similar to push-ups for the maximum possible time.
