Wisconsin man surpasses world pushup record!!!
June 9, 2021
A man named Nate Carroll of Winneconne spent a year doing push ups to support a charity called Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which pays off mortgages and provides housing to the families of fallen first responders.
In dramatic fashion Mr. Carroll completed his 1,500,231st pushup last Sunday, June 6th, at the 50-yard line of MetLife Stadium in New Jersey!
Every pushup is documented in a log book, and most are posted on his YouTube channel in time-lapse form. He also relies on witnesses to ensure accountability. Carroll has applied to Guinness World Records, which will collect video, personal verification letters and likely do interviews to verify his integrity.
He is continuing to add to his total and averages more than 4,100 pushups a day (but has done as many as 7,000 on some days to raise money.)
As far as background, Mr. Carroll is 45 and grew up in Manawa, where he played high school football, basketball and baseball, and then spent seven years in the Marine Corps Reserves. He graduated from UW-Oshkosh in 2000. The two-time Ironman competitor and long-distance runner has a knack for ultra-competitive endeavors. He works at Wisconsin Resource Center, a mental health facility in Oshkosh for prison inmates where he’s been employed the past 20 years as a social worker.
