Guinness World Record for longest crocheting marathon won by a Nigerian

The Guinness World Records (GWR) has recognized Nigerian woman Chidinma Modupe Okafor as the new holder of the record for the longest crocheting marathon.

According to the British reference book, Chidinma broke the previous record of 34 hours and 7 minutes set by Alessandra Hayden of the United States in 2021 by crocheting a white dinner gown constantly for an astounding 72 hours.

Chidinma had to crochet continuously for the entire marathon in order to record the longest crocheting marathon.

She would start working on the next ball of yarn as soon as she had finished the previous one. Her extraordinary passion and endurance were exhibited by her unwavering effort.

Speaking on her accomplishment, Chidinma said she wanted to draw attention to the patience and expertise needed to master the craft of crocheting.

“I aim to showcase the artistry and perseverance involved in this craft and promote awareness about crocheting and its benefits,” she said.

Chidinma also shared insights into her rigorous preparation for the marathon attempt, which included extensive training and mental conditioning.

“My preparation for the record attempt involved rigorous training and mental conditioning. It also required physical endurance and strategizing to maintain a consistent pace while minimizing fatigue,” she explained.

“Additionally, logistics such as arranging for sufficient yarn with support staff were crucial for the uninterrupted progress of the attempt.”

Chidinma is one of several Nigerians who’ve broken a world record following Hilda’s famous cook-a-thon, including Helen Williams (longest wig and widest wig), Ewa Cole (longest marathon singing Christmas songs), Clara Chizoba Kronborg (longest interviewing marathon), and Tonye Solomon (most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head).
