Man set 52 Guinness World Records in 52 weeks: dizzying video
David Rush, an American engineer from Idaho, has a very unusual hobby: he likes to set records for the Guinness Book of World Records. He has done it more than 200 times. He set 52 of them last year.
According to the Guinness World Records website, on September 12, Rush became the record holder for the 249th time. During a live TV show, he caught the largest number of marshmallows released from a homemade catapult in his mouth. Thus, he completed his marathon, during which he recorded one achievement per week. All of them are collected in a video, so to watch it, scroll down to the end of the news.
David juggled objects while standing on an unstable surface; balanced an object on his head for more than an hour and a half; put T-shirts on top of each other for speed; chopped fruit with a sword while on a fitball; wrapped people in bubble wrap for speed; ran, juggled, and whistled at the same time; caught a Frisbee from behind; juggled with axes; balanced a chainsaw; caught various objects with his mouth; and did a whole bunch of other crazy things.
Rush set most of his records on his own, but he also has some team achievements. So, thanks to his hobby, his wife Jennifer and son Jeremy also became Guinness World Records holders in the family.
The record for balancing 101 rolls of toilet paper on his head was the hardest for the man. He made the most attempts to finally last 30 seconds, but still achieved his goal.
"One of the most important things you need to understand is that failure on your first attempt does not judge you, your abilities, your natural talents, or your ability to succeed in the future," says multiple record holder David Rush.
And all of his activities, among other things, are aimed at getting children interested in the exact and natural sciences and not being afraid of the fact that they will not start to succeed right away. That is why he started setting Guinness World Records in 2015.
