Four-year-old Thurgashree Thanabalasingam made the "Most sit ups ever done by a child", while her elder sister Logasree, 8, made an entry for "Heaviest weight lifted by two little fingers".
Thurgashee, a pint-sized kindergarten student from Bukit Mertajam, did a regiment's worth of 1,111 sit ups in 31 minutes and 21 seconds.
Logasree, who is a Standard Two student in SRJK Tamil Kampong Baru, Bukit Mertajam, lifted 21kg with two fingers for over 10 seconds.
The event was jointly organised by the Seberang Perai Tengah Weightlifting Association and MIC Youth.
Their father and trainer M. Thanabalasingam, 37, said his two daughters had undergone many months of training, putting in about four hours of work a day. "I am proud of their achievements."
Officiating the event was Human Resource Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam and Malaysia Book Of Records founder Datuk Danny Ooi who presented certificates to the sisters.
