A youth from Odisha has claimed of creating a world record in balancing hockey stick in one finger. Now he aspires to see his name enter the Guinness Book of World Records. 

Rajgopal Bhoi, a resident of Jamutjhula village in Tureikela block of Bolangir district said that he has been able to balance a hockey stick on one finger for around 3 hours 35 minutes which is a world record.

"I managed to break all previous world records by balancing a hockey stick on one finger for 3.35 hours. I have submitted all necessary documents and other proofs of my record attempt to the Guinness World Records (GWR). The certification of my bid will take around 3 months. Thereafter, I can be officially recognized for this world record," Rajgopal told OTV.

As per the official website of GWR, the present world record on longest duration of balancing a field hockey stick on one finger stands in the name of a Bangalore man named Himanshu Gupta.
