    Kentucky Man Attempts World Record


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     A middle school teacher and track coach set the bar high and reportedly broke the world record for the most amount of pushups on medicine balls. Bob O’Brien of Owensboro, Kentucky, managed to do 55 pushups in a minute on Thursday. The previous record was 47, according to Guinness World Records, which has yet to confirm O’Brien’s feat.

    When J. Megan Trogden heard about the attempt, she knew she wanted to be there to support her friend, O’Brien. “Having someone from a small Kentucky town break a world record amazed me,” she said. “He is 47 years old and is so driven in life he has broken a couple records, he sets goals and works hard to achieve them.” O’Brien is her son’s cross-country coach.
