He is the author of more than 20 records in Armenia and three - in the Guinness World Records. It is true that it was not easy to appear in the Guinness Book of Records. The initial attempts were unsuccessful, as some mistakes were made, but the athlete managed to overcome everything and register new victories.

“I dedicated my first record to the victims of the Genocide and the other to the memory of the heroes of the four-day war. With such a step, I can tackle these important issues somewhere in the international press. Whenever a record is set, the media mentions it and provides details about the record,” - says Manvel Mamoyan.
