Surasa Mairer, from Vienna, Austria, set a new women's record, breaking the old record that was set in 1998 by Suprabha Beckjord. Surasa finished in a stellar time of 49 days, 7 hours, 52 minutes and 1 second. She was crowned with the victory wreath by Suprabha herself in a joyous ceremony at the exciting finish. Stutisheel passed the 3000 mile mark earlier in the day and is poised to finish tomorrow afternoon. Just before midnight Nirbhasa reached the 3000 mile mark as well with a small crowd of enthusiastic supporters to cheer him on.
