Former Guinness World Record holder Hilda Baci has broken her silence after losing her title to another contestant.
According to a report by Vistanaij Media, the renowned chef was dethroned for the longest duration spent cooking while standing, as confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records on their social media platforms. Alan Fisher from Ireland emerged as the new record holder, accomplishing an astonishing cooking marathon of 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.
In response to the news, Hilda updated her social media account’s biography. Taking to Twitter to provide an explanation, she expressed that while she may have lost the official title, she still considers herself a record holder in spirit and history. She also chose to celebrate her successor for his remarkable achievement and competitive spirit.
Hilda mentioned that the previous record holder, Chef Lata, graciously acknowledged her as the winner and made revisions to her own bio, which is why Hilda is following suit.
Recognizing the immense challenge of achieving such a record, Hilda expressed her admiration for Chef Alan, as she personally understands the emotions and dedication involved in such an accomplishment.
“Just as Chef Lata respectfully acknowledged the new record holder by updating her bio and later fine-tuning the wording I’ve adjusted mine too. Achieving such a record is no small feat, and I know this firsthand. I have only the greatest admiration for the hard work it took for Alan to reach such heights. Sportsmanship is about recognizing progress, whether the accolade is in my bio or not. I remain a record holder in spirit and history. Let’s celebrate achievement and the spirit of competition”.
