Warsaw - Polish pianist Romuald Koperski set a world record by giving a concert lasting 103 hours and 8 seconds at a Gdansk shopping mall, Polish Radio reported Monday. "There is nothing worse, no torture is worse than the impossibility of getting enough sleep," Koperski told the Polish Press Agency PAP after the marathon concert in northern Poland.

The pianist was entitled to a five-minute break for every hour played, according to Guinness World Record rules. The pianist tried to accumulate the breaks to take longer rests, and ate and drank as little as possible so as not to waste time, PAP reported.

Koperski finished the concert Sunday evening and will now send documentation of the concert to Guinness officials in London.

Hungarian Charles Brunner had previously held the record, with 101 hours and 7 minutes of continuous playing.

Calif school Kids jump at chance to help set world record

Hundreds of children spread out Monday around McAuliffe School in Oxnard, jumping and skipping to try to set a world record and raise awareness about heart health.

They joined about 80,000 people statewide who started jumping at 9 a.m., trying to break the Guinness World Record for the most people jumping rope at the same time, said McAuliffe Learning Director Manny Koch. Monday was the first day of American Heart Month, and the event was organized in partnership with the American Heart Association, officials said.

“Who here is ready to make history?” Koch yelled into a microphone seconds before the jumping began. Kids cheered and screamed in response, and for the next 10 minutes as music blared from speakers, kindergartners through sixth-graders swung their ropes, laughing, sweating and getting a little winded.

California schools, nonprofit groups, businesses and clubs all worked with the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance on the attempt, Koch said. The current jump-rope record is 59,000 people and is held by Australia. Officials were not sure if and when Monday’s effort would be certified as a new record.

McAuliffe and Parkview School in Port Hueneme were the two Ventura County campuses participating in the statewide effort. The Environmental Academy for Research Technology and Earth Sciences, or EARTHS, a magnet school in Newbury Park, also jumped and raised money Monday but did not register for the record-breaking challenge.

At EARTHS, the event had a special meaning for kids and staff, said Lisa Dellamonica, a physical education teacher and event coordinator. In January, the campus unexpectedly lost fifth-grade teacher Rose McManama to a heart attack. “We wanted to do this in her honor,” Dellamonica said.

The school’s 500 kindergarteners through fifth-graders participated in the event, and the campus raised more than $2,000 for the American Heart Association.

“The mission of this program is really just to educate our youth on how they can make a difference in other people’s lives and their lives through healthy eating and exercise and giving back to our organization,” said Jessica LaRoe, youth market director for the association.

McAuliffe was the largest of the county schools participating Monday, with about 1,000 kids jumping, LaRoe said.

“It was really hard because you had to keep going and not stop for more than 10 seconds,” said Jessica Grogg, 11, after the music stopped. “It gets pretty tiring.”

Tasmanian water skiers set breaking a world record.

The 85 skiers in the first run made a dramatic sight at Strahan in the water skiing world record attempt.

In an attempt to break the record for most water skiers towed behind a single boat, the Horsehead Waterski Club crossed the line with 99 skiers upright at Strahan. The record is 100.

But even though they fell short of the record, club spokesman Nic Wilson said no one was disappointed.

"Nobody else in the world has managed more than 100 skiers, and we had over 100 for most of that run," he said.

"We will most likely try again. We've been newly invigorated knowing we now have the hardware to do the job.

"So all we need now is to work on the human factor."

This is the third attempt the club has made to break the record, with bids in February 2009 and February 2008 foiled by bad weather and equipment failures.

This time, towed behind the catamaran Eagle, from Strahan's World Heritage Cruises, and using special tow ropes that were stronger than steel cable with no stretch, the towing rig did not break.

The 120 skiers from the Lake Barrington-based club made their first run on Saturday at sunrise.

After some early falls, 85 skiers were still upright as they crossed the line at the end of the nautical mile (1.8km) run.

The second run was at 6pm and this time the record seemed within the club's grasp as 101 skiers remained upright for most of the run.

But not too far short of the finish line two record-seekers fell as they tried to negotiate the ropes of fallen skiers.

Failing light meant a third attempt could not be made.

But Mr Wilson said the euphoria of being so close and having equipment working tempered the disappointment.

"We're calling it a huge success," he said.

"Water skiing is a sport you can't do on your own, it requires teamwork and we had 300 people supporting our 120 skiers, so even from that perspective it went amazingly well.

"And everyone had a lot of fun."

The world record was set in Cairns in 1986.

Macquarie Hills Sets 125cc Motorcycle Distance Jump world Record in Australia

Tyrone Gilks doesn’t need the nod from Guinness to claim he owns another world record.

The 16-year-old set a motorcycle distance jumping mark at a Braidwood property yesterday morning.


Cheered on by a small but vocal crowd, Gilks, of Lake Macquarie, jumped 73.91m to smash the 125cc record by 6.55m.

The new mark is his third world record, after setting marks for 65cc and 85cc motorcycles before he hit his teens.

However, Guinness World Records does not recognise class distance records and only acknowledge overall distance records.

Australian Robbie Maddison holds the world record at 106.98m on a 500cc bike.

It was Maddison’s 125cc mark of 67.36m that Gilks broke yesterday.

The teenager’s dream is to break the outright distance record.

”Guinness not recognising it doesn’t worry me, because I’ve done the 65cc, 85cc and now 125cc, and everyone knows that,” Gilks said.

”It’s not all about a beer company putting me in their book.”

Less than two years after creating a Guinness record, noted Ghazal singer and Telugu actor Kesiraju Srinivas aka Ghazal Srinivas set another world record in the most languages sung in an audio album category. He achieved it in style rendering a song The Golden Dreams of Gandhiji in 125 languages, of which 65 were foreign and 60 Indian.

In a remarkable tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on the eve of his death anniversary, Ghazal Srinivas announced this achievement to the media on Saturday. The 6:12 minute song is themed on Gandhijis philosophical doctrines: satyagraha, non-violence, peace and love.

With this, Ghazal Srinivas broke the record of an Israeli national Taliya who recorded a song Wild Flower in 18 world languages in 2004.

Steve Schmidt of Leslie lifts 220.5 pounds with his teeth set world record

Steve Schmidt of Leslie lifts 220.5 pounds with his teeth on his way to setting a Guinness record Saturday at Clark’s Championship Gym as owner Bill Clark keeps time with a stopwatch.

Clark’s Championship Gym feels like it’s out of another era. It has giant dumbbells with spherical weights like those in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. It has a power rack that looks like a medieval torture device, and the gym’s walls are covered with names written in black marker documenting unusual feats of strength.


The dusty gymnasium on Grace Lane seemed to be the perfect place for an attempt at a world record fit for an old-time, circus strongman.

Yesterday morning, Steve Schmidt, a cattle rancher from the Franklin County town of Leslie, tried to break a Guinness record for lifting 100 kilograms, or 220.5 pounds, the most times in one minute using his teeth. The record, set four years ago by a man from Luxembourg, is 24.

Schmidt is the nation’s undisputed “teeth-lifting champion,” weightlifting expert Bill Clark said, and his achievements include pulling a tractor-trailer for a city block and bending everything from horseshoes to metal bolts using his teeth.

“I think everybody has gifts, and this is his God-given gift,” said Schmidt’s wife, Kathleen. “And when you couple that with his intensive training routine, he’s just awesome.”

Yesterday, with friends, family and camera crews watching, Schmidt placed a leather strap in his mouth and attached it by a chain and a metal hook to a stack of weights on the ground.

A strand of rope stretched 6 inches above the floor confirmed the height of each repetition as two separate stopwatches kept time. At the sound of a whistle, Schmidt began lifting the weights at a rapid pace. When he reached 21 reps, he paused and took several deep breaths, eliciting cheers of encouragement from about two dozen spectators.

Then Schmidt continued at an even faster clip. At the end of one minute, Schmidt had done 50 repetitions, more than doubling the previous record.

Schmidt later said he felt winded and was sure his neck would be sore in the morning but said he could do even more reps.

“I’ve kind of left the door open. You probably saw I could have done a few more,” he said. “I figure I could get another 10 more if somebody tries to push me.”

Schmidt received a copy of Guinness World Records as a Christmas gift and, while thumbing through the pages, spotted the teeth-lifting record. He went out the next day and broke the record by himself and said he has eclipsed it nearly every time he has tried since then.

He said all of his teeth are his own, and he credits his dental strength to the fact that he drinks only well water — no fluoride — and brushes his teeth with a coconut-oil mixture. After breaking the record, Schmidt bent several horseshoes and bolts in his mouth for the cheering crowd.
