On April 1st at 1pm in Rundle Mall, Adelaide, Hectorville resident Mr Vladimir Jurcik will attempt to beat the world recorld for maximum situps in one hour. Making the record attempt all the more inspiring, Vlad is currently 60 years old, and has spent the last 14 years rehabilitating from an aquired brain injury. The current world record for maximum situps in one hour is held by ex-Navy Seal and fitness junkie Jim Clark from Minnesota, USA. He performed 2201 in an hour- a figure Vlad expects to smash in Rundle Mall on April 1. The attempt is being made to inspire others to strive for greatness, and to raise money and awareness for Hearing Dogs. Vlad became deaf when he received his brain injury, and relies on the assistance of a Terrier-cross called Roxy to act as his ears. While guide dogs for the blind are commonly recognised and allowed for in public space, the same does not apply to hearing dogs, and Vlad has been the frequent victim of discrimination due to lack of understanding of his dog’s ‘access all areas’ rights. Danimations will also be producing a short documentary film derived from Vlad’s experiences with aquired brain injury later this year. Please come along and show your support for a courageous South Australian whose discipline and commitment will make him a world-beater!
