It was a double celebration at the Sky Climbers’ graduation ceremony on Monday as Qatar set a new Guinness World Record.
A selfie taken during the graduation ceremony of the second batch of Sky Climbers youth earned Qatar a new entry in the Guinness World Records book for 2018 – the longest selfie stick.

The attempt was attributed to Abdullah Al Ghafri, whose initiative snatched the title from ITP Live, Dubai, who set the previous record in April, earlier this year.
The record was marked by the below photo, which will go down in the history books alongside plenty of records attributed to Qatar.
