A Wisconsin man appears to have broken the world record for most pushups in a year in his effort to raise money for the families of fallen first responders. Nate Carroll, of Winneconne, completed his 1,500,231st pushup Sunday at the 50-yard line during halftime of the 48th annual Fun City Bowl, a football game between New York City first responders at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. And while the record — held since October 1989 by British athlete Paddy Doyle — still needs to be verified by the Guinness Book of World Records and the Record Holders Republic Registry of Official World Records, Carroll is continuing to add to his total. He has until Sunday to complete a year of pushups.
