The world record for the longest plank has recently been broken by 16-year-old Gabi Ury, who planked for 80 (yes, 80!) minutes to celebrate her birthday--and to raise money for a worthy cause. Incredible!

    Congrats to her. All I can say is I will give it a shot and see how long I can do it....It's a start anyway.. - 4/30/2015 6:32:47 PM

    While truly commendable and no ordinary feat, the world record is much longer - 2 hr 12 min for female and 4 hr 26 min for male. Not to take anything away from this girl, but reporters owe the public some research before printing completely inaccurate claims. - 4/30/2015 12:31:16 PM
  • An inspirational young lady. Congratulations to her for setting a goal of fundraising for a worthy cause. Her parents raised a beautiful soul for wanting to give back. Bravo! - 12/15/2014 9:39:55 AM
  • What a fantastic feat! That young lady is awesome. Hope she gets on ELLEN. BTW The interviewer did a great job also holding her plank over 2 minutes. 2 minutes is tough! - 5/10/2014 11:49:18 AM

  • PLEASE ELLEN! Please get this wonderful young lady on your show. How I wish yelling "comments" could be heard across the miles!! - 4/25/2014 12:39:46 PM
  • What a wonderful little girl - raising all of that money for a worthy cause. Hope she makes it to the Ellen show! - 4/25/2014 7:33:19 AM
  • Nice kid! Doing that for the Childrens Hospital is a great deed! I am so used to hearing about kids doing bad stuff that it is refreshing to hear about another one doing something good. - 4/25/2014 6:23:44 AM
