Break A Guinness World Record

Break A Guinness World Record

Guinness World Records was the brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was co-founded by brothers Norris and Ross McWhirten in London in August 1954, first written in 1955 is a reference book published annually, listing world records both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world

As of the 2018 edition, it is now in its 63rd year of publication, published in 100 countries and 23 languages.

The popularity of the franchise has resulted in Guinness World Records becoming the primary international authority on the cataloguing and verification of a huge number of world records.


For many years it has been a dream to be the holder of a Guinness World Record, I’ve just been trying to find the right record to attempt. I don’t really fancy running a marathon backwards or wearing a space suit!

I did have an attempt at a record in Green Park, London after completing the Westminster Mile running race, Guinness World Records Live! had the option to try your hand at some records, my buddy Liam and I attempted the Most beach paddle ball passes in one minute (team of two). Unfortunately, we did not break the Official Record but it was great fun to try!
