’Ole George still set to butcher record Books


NOEL BUTCHER is out of the race due to an injury he sustained, but Earl ‘Ole George’ Daniel was still walking strong under daytime temperatures of 36 degrees Celsius on a mission to get into the Guiness Book of World Records by walking for seven days and seven nights without sleep.{{more}}

Up to news Daniel was still on track walking around Emancipation Park in Jamaica, after starting out at nightfall Tuesday.

‘Ole George’ said they trained rigorously for three months at the Fitness Quest Gym in preparation for this event. They also walked 15 miles

twice a week and maintained a rigid diet.

It’s not the first time they have done this. Daniel and Butcher made history on March 14, 2005 when they walked 240 miles in six-days around St Vincent and the Grenadines without sleep.

The Jamaica event is being financed by the National Lotteries in the amount of $12,000 cash and $1,000 in gear.

Both men will also make several media appearances to promote AIDS awareness. SEARCHLIGHT wishes Ole George all the best.
