Harrison Chinedu, Nigerian footballer based in Cambodia, sets on the journey to break the Guinness World Record for the farthest distance travelled while balancing a football on his head and cover a distance of over 45. 64km. The record was set in 2014 as Indian soldier NaibSubedar Azad Singh travelled a distance of 45.64km.
Chinedu will begin his journey on Sunday 06 March at 7am from Kilometre 46 at the RCCG Redemption Camp and break the record by not allowing the ball to touch the ground before reaching the National Stadium in Surulere. Bet9ja are proud sponsors of this event, which will support the young and passionate Nigerian footballer as he attempts to make his mark on the world.
The event is open to the attendance of everyone and will also be broadcast on radio and highlights will be shown on television.
