Melbourne: A Sri Lanka born refugee created a new world record by hanging from his hair.

Suthakaran Sivagnanathurai, dangled more than a metre off the ground by his hair for over 23 minutes.

“My hair is strong because I usually use natural oil,” the Herald Sun quoted him as saying.

The record was set in Queensland, and Sivagnanathurai says that he overcame the pain by meditating.
