Break a World Record

Home > Brisbane > Misc | Fun for Children
Published January 14th 2011
Can you swallow swords, lift heavy things or eat a large amount of food in a very short time? Your unusual skill could be your five minutes of fame if it's a Guinness World Records breaker.

The Guinness World Records organisation has documented thousands of records over its fifty year run, ranging from the amazing (like heaviest car balanced on head) to the strange (like most live rattlesnakes held in the mouth – why?) There are eight different categories and dozens of pre-existing records within each record.

To attempt to break a world record, you will first need to register on the GWR website. Next, you will need to fill out a proposal form. If your unique skill isn't a pre-existing record, this is your chance to make a suggestion. Within four to six weeks, you will receive a rejection or acceptance of your proposal. If you are accepted, you will receive a World Record Breakers Pack with a list of guidelines and requirements for evidence. Finally, get cracking on breaking the record!

To save time, read this list of records the team doesn't accept before writing your proposal.
