PETALING JAYA: World No. 1 tower runner Soh Wai Ching can finally heave a huge sigh of relief as he has officially secured the Guinness World Records (GWR) for the ‘’farthest simulated distance climbed on a stair machine in one hour’’ (male) challenge.

This achievement comes after a five-month journey since Wai Ching completed the challenge by covering a distance of 1.649km at the Technogym Experience Centre in Bangsar in April.
