FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Paul Statchuk Gets in the Books after Reaching His Goal
at the 2012 Mississauga Marathon
Mississauga, Ontario – Paul Statchuk from Toronto, Ontario broke a Guinness
World RecordsTM at the 2012 Mississauga Marathon by a shocking 44 minutes
and 30 seconds with a final time of 3:45:30. On Sunday, May 6th, 2012 Paul
stood at the start line located at City Centre Drive and Robert Speck
Parkway like all other runners and walkers with one exception. Paul
Statchuk was fully dressed for football at an attempt to break one of the
Guinness World RecordsTM. One week later, Paul had received confirmation his
attempt was a successful one, "People look at setting Guinness World
RecordsTM as a major accomplishment – I look at it as a fun venture, and if
I can help raise some funds for some worthy charities along the way, then
everybody wins" says Paul when asked about his achievement.
Paul Statchuck is a 27 year old Software Sales Professional who has always
been passionate and involved in sports such as golf, hockey, baseball,
soccer, basketball and even squash. After wanting to get involved in an
even more competitive sport, he decided to turn to running and completed
his first Half Marathon in 2009, followed by his first Full Marathon
exactly one year later. This Boston Qualifier then submitted an application
to Guinness World RecordsTM five months before the 2012 Mississauga
Marathon, received approval in February and accomplished his goal in May.
He won't stop here though. Paul is going to continue to look for more
Guinness World RecordsTM to break.
See which Guinness World RecordsTM you could set at the 10th Anniversary of
the Mississauga Marathon taking place on Saturday, May 4th and Sunday, May
5th, 2013. Registration is now open!
