Lankan sets world record watching TV
STOCKHOLM (AP) — Suresh Joachim has broken his own Guinness world record for nonstop broadcast-television watching, clocking 72 hours in the Swedish capital.
"I feel fine, I drank between 25 and 30 cups of coffee," Joachim said Sunday.
His previous record was 69 hours, 48 minutes, set in 2005.
Joachim, a Sri Lanka native who lives in Toronto, watched three seasons of the drama series "24" featuring Kiefer Sutherland, said Swedish TV4 spokeswoman Janina Witkowski.
