Two Australian sisters have set an unofficial world record for continuous TV-watching after sitting through 87 hours of uninterrupted World Cup and football coverage.
Football-mad Joanne and Alanah Argyrou, 22 and 24, outlasted（比……长久） two other contenders as they sat for some three-and-a-half days at Sydney's Star City Casino, beating Dutchman Efraim van Oeveren's 86 hours.
The feat（功勋，壮举） -- which awaits confirmation by Guinness World Records -- was monitored by a team of officials who ensured the sisters did not look away from（把目光从……移开） the screen for more than five seconds.
They were given one five-minute break per hour but were allowed no more than five cups of coffee a day. In between World Cup broadcasts, the women watched recorded matches and football documentaries.
Australia’s hopes of reaching the knocking-out stages were badly dented（削弱，压伤） after June 14’s 4-0 defeat by Germany. The country is bidding to host the tournament's 2022 edition.
