71-Year Old MN Man Sets New World Record…On His Birthday
Andy Steinfeldt celebrated his 71st birthday this week with a gift to himself -- a world record.
"JCC Member, Andy Steinfeldt, was here today celebrating his 71st birthday by breaking the World Record for the longest plank for his age!" the Sabes Jewish Community Center posted to Facebook. "Andy stayed in the plank position for an impressive 38 minutes - surrounded by family, friends and a cheering crowd. Mazel tov, Andy!"
A motivational speaker, Andy has overcome quite a few obstacles within the past year: his company crashed, his father died, dear friends passed away, he got cancer, and he survived a blood clot. Still, he hasn't let life's setbacks hold him back; he competes in Senior Games in Minnesota, South Dakota and Iowa and intends to run two marathons in 2019.
