This little lad studying at SJK(T) Ladang Sialang in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, set a new record during the month-long #MyMaskOn online challenge, which was sponsored by local mask manufacturer Medicos and organised by Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR).
This act is certified by the Malaysia Book of Records which was part of a campaign to encourage individuals to wear masks while out in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This campaign was created with the goal of encouraging Malaysians to wear their masks while out and about.
The Malaysia Book of Records representative said Viswaa’s focus and laser-like precision is the secret to him being able to quickly and perfectly put on each mask one after the other.
The flash-like kid’s performance is just over two seconds slower than the world record of 5.2 seconds achieved by Rocco Mercurio of Italy on 5th August of last year.
According to the Guinness World Records, Mercurio, who hails from Villa San Giovanni, shattered his own previous record of 6.19 seconds.
The ten-year-old prodigy has won plenty of awards in digital competitions.
This SJK(T) Ladang Sialang student will also receive a year’s supply of medical grade face masks in addition to the national record.
Varnam wishes Viswaa Palani the best of luck in his future endeavours!
