Guinness World Records 2019

The Guinness Book of World Records 2019 has been released just a few weeks ago. I’ve seen many news outlets sharing their picks of the best and weirdest world records of the year. I haven’t read the book (or any of these Guinness Books ever), but I did read the news articles and watched a lot of YouTube. Out of those, I’ve gathered my own curated list of the best and worst world records.

  • While breathing fire, doing the most backflips: 14 in one minute
  • The oldest performing flying trapeze artiest 84 years old
  • Hula hooping with the most hoops: 59 hoops
  • The biggest knitting needles in the world: 4,42 m
  • The most dice balanced on a cat’s paw: 9 dice
  • Building Lego sets the fastest
  • The oldest DJ in the world: DJ Sumirock, 83 years old
  • Jump roping with dog and person: 59 times in one minute
  • The biggest chess piece in the world: 6,09 m high
  • Highest jump by a dog: 191,7 cm
  • Fastest 50m hand skating: 8.55 seconds
  • Most consecutive back handsprings (one hand): 34
