Excerpt From The Book
In fall 2015, Guinness World Records partnered with By Kids For Kids (BKFK) to create the “Records of the Future” challenge.
To take part, kids had to create a song, porm, short essay, rap, poster or video about a record they would like to set or break in the next 20 years.
The winner was 11-year-old Rebecca Thornton (above) from Wisconsin, for her rap about becoming the youngest person to visit Pluto
Largest game of catch (baseball/softball)
Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Cincinnati Reds played a game of catch consisting of 529 pairs at the P&G Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy in Cincinnati, Ohio, on 9 Jul 2015.
MLB legend Dave Parker, who counted down the attempt, received the GWR certificate in confirmation of the achievement.
The event, presented by Chevrolet, was part of MLB’s Play Ball initiative to engage young people with baseball, and launched the 2015 All-Star week.
Both professional players and hundreds of young fans, from eight to 18 years old, participated.
Most pine boards broken in one minute (female)
GWR Day in Australia was featured live on the Today show, and Summerly Denny (AUS) rose to the occasion, breaking 215 pine boards at the Olympic Park in Sydney.
Summerly attempted the record in order to raise awareness of cancer research; her father Glenn Coxon – who happens to hold the record for the most pine boards broken in one minute (male) – had recently undergone treatment for stage-four cancer.
LONGEST HUMAN TUNNEL SKATEBOARDED BY A DOG
Otto the skateboarding dog has perfected the art of whizzing through an arch of human legs, tilting and weaving to avoid mishaps.
No surprise, then, that the English bulldog wowed fans in Lima, Peru, by skimming through a tunnel of 30 people for GWR Day.
Otto’s proud owners, Luciana Viale and Robert Rickards, were inspired to choose a bulldog after watching videos of former record star Tillman, another skateboarding bulldog. Otto is also a talented surfer.
