    400-Pound Sumo Wrestler Completes L.A. Marathon

    LOS ANGELES – Running a marathon is a monumental feat for anyone, but for one runner in this year’s Los Angeles Marathon, pounding the pavement for 26.2 miles was more than that – it was a record breaker.

    That’s because Kelly Gneiting is a former sumo wrestler who weighed in at 400 pounds just before the race, the Los Angeles Times reported. Because of his size, Gneiting most likely established a Guinness World Record for the heaviest person to complete the grueling race. He finished Sunday’s race in 9 hours, 48 minutes and 52 seconds.
