The fittest female of UAE Eva Clarke has scored two more entries to the Guinness Book of the World Records for making most pull-ups in 12-hours and 24 hours categories as well.
She had stunned hundreds of spectators on Thursday evening when she broke a world record for the most pull-ups in one hour, registering her entry into Guinness Book of the World Records.
Clarke made a successful attempt on Friday to score 2,740 push-ups in about 6 hours and 30 minutes to break previous record of 2,740 push-up in 12 hours.
Dozens of spectators at the Al Wahda Mall cheered the 36-year old Australian on achieving the feat in just half the time compared to the time taken to set the previous record.
The third record that Clarke broke was in the 24-hours category which she completed doing pull-ups in several intervals. She did 3,737 pull-ups against previous record of 3,500 pull-ups in 24 hours.
On Thursday, she performed 725 pull-ups in one hour after she broke previous record of 700 pull-ups.

The event was held at Al Wahda Mall that supported it under the initiative themed "Health initiative to encourage the fittest female in her official attempt to break the Guinness World record in the category for Female and Male records for the most pull-ups in 24 hours."
Seven-time record holder Clarke undertook the twenty-four hours challenge due to her dedication and commitment to change people's lives through charities, including the NGO charity Task Brasil. Task Brasil aims to give decent living to street children, especially those abandoned, orphaned, victims of domestic violence. 
Aligning the event with International Women's Day celebration, Mohammed Nauman Thakur, general manager, Al Wahda Mall, said, since International Women's Day and Mother's Day are celebrated in the month of March, the mall dedicated this month to women.
