Double amputee Temur Dadiani breaks world record for planche push-ups, rides horses, and can ski

Breaking Guinness world records is the hottest fitness trend on YouTube. While all are highly commendable, some touch your heart. Here is the story of a double amputee Temur Dadiani, who completed 36 repetitions of planche push-ups in only 38.25 seconds on August 3, 2014. Then in October 2015 at Tbilisi, Georgia, he broke his own record by completing 44 push-ups in a minute. 

In 2020, Austin Dunham decided to break Temur Dadiani’s record. Despite him being a healthy individual, he could only endure up to 24 planche push-ups. It only proves the endurance level, grit, and determination of Temur Dadiani, the soldier who lost both legs. Temur has created a world record that is difficult to break.
