Laurentiu broke the record of 3,249 set by Australian Daniel Scali, who was awarded the GWR title just one month before it was taken by Laurentiu.
Laurentiu has been attempting to break the record since 2017, but previous attempts were disqualified due to his form failing to meet GWR standards, the record-keeping organization said.
"In my heart I know I did it. After the first six attempts I was disappointed, but today I feel like a winner," Laurentiu told GWR officials.
The athlete said he was not discouraged by his previous attempts being disqualified.
"Every time I failed, I wanted to go again because my heart pushed me to get up and keep going forward. My heart told me that every time you fail and get up again, you will only get closer to achieving your goal," he said.
