Amputee woman breaks world record.

Dareen Barbar breaks the world record for the longest static wall sit.

The static wall sit is a very challenging thigh exercise that many struggle to maintain for 30 seconds yet this amazing woman managed to stay in the position for 2 minutes and 8 seconds.

Dareen lost her leg at age 15 due to bone cancer but that did not stop her from pursuing her passion for sports and fitness. She said she was inspired by Terry Fox, a Canadian athlete and cancer research activist who also happens to be an amputee.

Dareen says breaking this record in the month of June is significant to her because she lost her leg in June 1993. She says she plans to continue encouraging people to go beyond their limitations and work hard to achieve their goals. "Achieving something is always rewarding. Go for it, plan train and aim".
