Today we had the pleasure of interviewing brand new Guinness World Record Holder, Steffan Reimer. Steffan is a 32 year old Physical Education teacher and accomplished runner with a marathon PB of 2:37:16, so naturally when he discovered that the world record for dribbling a basketball while running a marathon was 3:00:25, he knew he had to go after it. Steffan was ultimately successful in this quirky but seriously challenging pursuit in the Manitoba Marathon, crossing the finish line in an impressive 2:50:33 and beating the previous record by almost 10 minutes.
