Dubai-based athlete sets world record for largest GPS drawing on wheelchair

Dubai-based Indian expat and athlete, Sujith Varghese, has set a new Guinness World Record for the largest GPS drawing made by an individual on a wheelchair. Varghese accomplished the feat by tracing a route around the Burj Khalifa, measuring at 8.71 km, and forming an image of a person in a wheelchair. The Dubai Police provided support to Varghese during his journey by forming a convoy behind him, ensuring his safety during the task.

Varghese’s mission was to inspire and motivate other wheelchair-bound athletes, demonstrating that they are strong and that their disabilities should not hold them back. Varghese said in a post online that he hopes to encourage others to see their adversities as an opportunity to become stronger and inspire others.

Despite the challenging and punishing weather conditions in Dubai, Varghese completed the route, with his body strained and in pain, but his determination to succeed kept him going. He believes that the difficulties he has faced in life were part of a higher power’s plan to make him stronger and capable of inspiring others.

Varghese is well-known in Dubai and has given multiple TED talks, advocating for athletes with disabilities. He hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams and overcome any obstacles they may face.

In an interview, Varghese said, “Before you look to the world for inspiration and acceptance, look in the mirror, because you are the one that the world looks to for inspiration. Be the one that guides the light for the rest of us. Chart new territories for those who aren’t lucky enough to have the challenges you face.”

Varghese’s determination and hard work have made him a world record holder, but more importantly, he has inspired and motivated others to follow in his footsteps.
