Madrid : A Spanish man broke the Guinness record for slicing ham non-stop for 40 hours.
Gregorio Perez, started slicing ham Friday night and continued till Sunday in Valladolid city.
Perez wielded a knife without stopping and carved 36 hams.
He thus managed to break the previous ham-slicing record of 33 hours and three minutes.
Last year, Perez established a daily exercise routine for himself with the aim of remaining on his feet for many consecutive hours, enlisting the help of a physical therapist, a psychologist, a nutritionist and a masseuse.
Part of the sliced hams will be donated to a local non-governmental organisation, while the rest was distributed free to the people of the city.
