Egyptian cyclist, Helmy El-Saeed, just made history in Europe, earning a spot in the Guinness World Records.
The 27-year-old was part of the fastest team to ever cycle across Europe - having traveled across the continent in 29 days and broken the previous record.
El-Saeed embarked on the record-breaking journey with his Swedish team, "FastestXEurope," which cycled from Russia to Portugal.
The team arrived at the westernmost point in Europe after 29 days, 5 hours, and 25 minutes, surpassing the previous record by 12 hours.
The team cycled through eight countries over a total distance of 6,175 kilometers, spending over 262 hours on a bicycle in one month. They burned approximately 203,000 calories, which nearly amounts to 25% of what a human burns in a year, according to El-Saeed.
The cherry on top: It's all for a good cause, as the team took on the challenge with the aim to raise awareness on child autism with the Viggo Foundation.
"The human mind and body are incredible," El-Saeed wrote on Instagram.
"One day, you are thinking up world records, and another you are holding it in the palm of your hand."
El-Saeed sends a motivational message to his followers, encouraging them to follow their dreams and lead an optimistic life.
"The human mind is capable of doing a lot more than what we think it can do, and it's that element of surprise is what keeps us dreaming bigger and challenging the status quo and the limitations that we impose on ourselves [sic]," he said.
No sign of slowing down
The finance-worker-turned-athlete is not slowing down after the impressive feat and is already thinking of his next challenge.
He told Reuters he now plans to cross the entire of Egypt, from the northernmost point to the southernmost point, all on foot.
El-Saeed also has his eyes set on the Olympic Games, hoping to represent the country at the Winter Olympics, in which Egypt has only taken part once before.
