The sixty year old Ali Al-Eidan, a Kuwaiti athlete, climbed the stairs of the 372 meters high Liberation Tower in downtown Kuwait city on Wednesday in seven minutes and 22 seconds.

Afterwards, he told reporters that this was his annual way of honoring the occasions of the national and liberations days, noting that he wished to steer people's attention to the importance of exercise in one's life and the imperative to keep healthy and physically fit.

Up next on his exercise agenda, he said, was to climb the stairs of the Petronas towers in Kuala Lampur in Malaysia, which stand at a height of 452 meters.
