To run 100 meters in high heels in less than 15 seconds, to collect over 300 vacuum cleaners and have a goat that rides a skateboard over a distance of 36 meters are among the most unusual records included in the Guinness Book 2014.
The eccentric dream of James Brown, a 33-year-old British who wanted to enter the Guinness World Records has become reality thanks to its impressive collection of 322 vacuum cleaners. As an irony, the young man who received the first unit at the age of eight, is not a fan of cleaning: “I don’t like to clean”, he said, posing with a “necklace” consisting of vacuum hoses around the neck.
Julia Plecher, Germany, ran on a distance of 100 meters in 14 seconds and 531 thousandths, in an evening dress, also wearing heels.
In the category of animals, a goat managed to ride a skate board for 25 seconds, for the record distance of 36 meters.
A four year old dog, Ozzy, came from crossing the breeds Border Collie and Kelpie, has proven to be a talented balancer: went on a long rope of 3.5 meters in 18 seconds and 22 hundredths.
Two contortionist they entered the Guinness Book this year - a 12-year-old Indian, Rohan Kokan went with roller skates close to the ground from a height of only 25 inches, a distance of 10 meters. He achieved this performance in full shift, making splits and his torso was bent forward, low to the ground.
A young Anglo-Filipino woman, Leilani Franco, endowed with elasticity and extraordinary mobility, managed to make the bridge and go so in that position, continuing to smile, a distance of 20 meters, with a record speed of 10 seconds and 05 hundredths.
Extravagant vehicles also entered the Guinness Book of Records. One of them is the most impressive motorcycle ever built, with a height of 5.10 meters, a length of 10 meters and a weight of about 5 tonnes. Red, built by Italian Fabio Reggiani, is six times larger than a regular motorcycle. It is equipped with three gears and no reverse.
