The inspiration to attempt a world record came when he was browsing the web and saw Parkour videos. “I thought to myself, if others can do it then why can’t we Nepalis?”
With the record in his bag, Sunar was noticed by the World Parkour and Freerunning Federation, and landed an opportunity to train in the US, getting a wild card to compete in the USA Parkour Cup, where he finished in the Top 8.
“It was an incredibly proud moment for me to represent Nepal in the international arena, and it was made possible by the people who supported me,” says Sunar, who is now the first and only certified Parkour trainer in the country. “Parkour and Freerunning are getting more popular, and my aim is to promote and train more Nepali athletes.”
