World’s youngest person ever to climb the world’s highest mountain

13-year-old Jordan Romero sets off on the journey of a lifetime — hoping to become the youngest person ever to climb the world’s highest mountain.

To call Jordan Romero "sporty" would be quite an understatement. The Californian teen has been climbing mountains since he was just ten years of age and now he's tackling the biggest and toughest of them all — Mount Everest.

Romero found his love for mountaineering at a young age and by the time he was ten, he had climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, becoming the youngest person ever to have conquered Africa's highest mountain, reports the BBC. Since then, he's gone on to climb the highest peaks in every continent apart from Asia. Not bad, considering he's just 13-years-old!

Currently en route to the Mount Everest base camp, with his father and step-mother, the ambitious teen has already been blogging and posting pictures on his website. "Things are going very good. The whole team and gear is together, and that is saying a lot in this situation," he wrote yesterday, day two of their journey to the camp. "In between the amazing sights, the laughing and heckling is in abundance. We have arrived in Nylam, Tibet," he added.

Before he does any actual climbing, Romero will spend weeks acclimatizing, in order to prepare his body for the grueling task ahead — 29,035 feet of treacherous sub-zero temperatures and hurricane-force winds. But the courageous young climber can't wait to get started, telling AFP: "It's something I've always wanted to do before I die — I just happen to be doing it at this age [and] for a world record. But I just want to climb it."
Don't think all this record-breaking will mean slacking off on his schoolwork. Mom, Leigh Ann Drake says Romero has in his rucksack, "his algebra book and some writing assignments," to keep him up to date with his schooling, in between climbs.

And when he's not out in the field, breaking world records, Romero is busy encouraging other youngsters to get active outdoors with his 7 Summits of Big Bear Youth Challenge project, leading hikes up the Big Bear Valley's highest peaks and offering advice on training, nutrition and goal setting to kids of all ages.

World's Fastest Streetbike to a Maxton Mile record - Bill Warner

Warner rode the world's fastest streebike to a Maxton Mile record of 272.340 mph on BST Carbon-Fiber Wheels.

Claiming the title of "World's Fastest Streetbike," Wild Bros Racing's Bill Warner rode into the record books at the East Coast Timing Association's Maxton Mile on April 11 with an astounding 272.340 mph pass in the standing mile.

In preparation for Maxton, Warner, 41, a tropical fish farmer and marine biologist from Tampa Bay, Florida, went to a Texas Mile event two weeks earlier, stripped the bodywork off his turbocharged, 1298cc Suzuki Hayabusa and made two 255 mph passes-the fastest unfaired, naked-bike runs ever recorded-at one point data logging a rear-wheel speed over 308 mph as the tire spun trying to harness more than 600 horsepower.

Setup dialed in, Warner and his team arrived at the all-concrete, one-mile course on a former air base in Maxton, North Carolina, planning his weekend record assault using the 253 mph MPS/BF-1650/4 class record as his target. Warner's third run on Saturday, a 257.604 mph pass, did the trick, but there was more to come. On Sunday, he posted a pair of 256 mph test runs in the morning with stock body panels before Shane Stubbs upped the ante, and the nearly five-year-old fastest-streetbike record previously held by Lee Shierts at 260.288 in the MPS/BF-3000/4 class, with a 264.375 mph blast.

"I was excited for him," says Wild Bill, "but Shane went a bunch faster than I expected him to go, so I reached in my bag of tricks." Warner pulled out three key ingredients to a better run: a leaner air-fuel mixture ("Because leaner is meaner in turbo racing," he insists), two pounds more turbo boost in top gear and a set of top-secret, custom bodywork.

"I figured that one of two things were gonna happen, either I would have to shut it down early or I'd put in a really good run," Warner continued. "You get really motivated in these situations. I stayed in the throttle and kept the bike straight up, charging forward." This little bit of inspiration is all he needed to post his 272.340 mph run-obliterating the class and track records, making this 'Busa the fastest vehicle ever run at Maxton.

Warner was so motivated and charging forward so quickly that he failed to get the bike slowed down in time for a corner halfway through Maxton's shut-down zone: "My timing was off because I was traveling so much faster, it caught me a little off guard. I went in at the wrong angle and hit the third traffic cone at 167 mph." This ripped off the front fender and damaged his hand-built bodywork, which took 300 man-hours to perfect, but didn't wipe the smile off his face.

Fellow land-speed-record-holder Paul Livingston was blown away by Warner's accomplishments: "I was shocked and excited to hear about Bill going 272 mph," says Livingston, "but what knocked us on our asses were the 255 mph naked runs. This makes him a hero-even among the hard-core land-speed guys."

Brock's Performance President Brock Davidson put a lot of homework into finding the right land-speed team to sponsor. "We can design, create and supply the greatest parts we know how to produce," he says, "but we have to provide them to people who know how to set up a motorcycle, do the proper testing, read the data and move forward intelligently. Bill's drive, determination and ability-on and off the bike-are the reasons we chose Wild Bros Racing. And he killed it."

In addition to supporting such land-speed efforts, Brock's Performance is reaching out to AMA Dragbike, MIROCK Superbike dragrace and WERA Motorcycle Roadracing series competitors with nearly $118,000 worth of contingency awards in 2010. Racers using various Brock's Performance exhaust systems and BST carbon-fiber wheels are eligible.

World's Most body piercings by needles set Man World Record - Ed Bruns Wyoming

Ed Bruns stood in front of a crowd taking applause after four hours and 27 minutes of almost constant poking with needles on Sunday evening.

As a total of 1,501 needles shimmered with the light of camera flashes, Bruns' legs began to quake, and the shock began.

It was the shock of being a new Guinness World Record holder with 304 more piercings than the previous attempt.

It was the shock of actually doing something that dozens of people called him crazy for even trying.

And it was a little physical shock from the year-supply of 16-gauge piercing needles still stuck in his arms, back and legs.

Despite some shock, Bruns made the attempt look easy. He never complained and only blinked hard a few times when the piercing artist put needles through the tender skin on the back of his knees.

"It was a little tender down the sides and down the spine," Bruns said. "I thought as soon as we got started, 'It's all over.'"

When piercing artist "Freehand" Robert Benson put needle No. 1,198 - the one that broke the previous record - into the back of Bruns' left leg, his daughter Kailyn Porter rubbed her dad's arm and whispered to him. It looked as though she was comforting him, but in reality, he was comforting the 10-year-old by telling her that it didn't really hurt.

Kailyn says she is proud of her dad and even wants to take him to show-and-tell at her school.

"I knew that he would do it, but I was kind of scared," Kailyn said. "I'm really proud of him."

The piercing began in the large, open studio at Pain for Sale tattoo and piercing at 2:30 p.m. Sunday with more than a hundred people packed into the front of the building to watch. They stood on tiptoes and leaned around corners to catch a glimpse of the zipper-like rows of 50 needles lining Bruns' back that would make history a few hours later.

"Does he get paid for doing this?" a gruff biker asked loudly from the corner of the room.

"Nope," another told him.

The biker was shocked into silence knowing that someone was enduring hours of pain for nothing more than a mention in a record book and some high-fives.

Rose Ward sat nearby the commotion crocheting dishcloths and watching the spectacle. Ward and another notary public were required to be on hand through the entire event to witness and notarize the documentation for the official record.

"I never thought I would ever need to notarize something like this," Ward said as she finished her fourth cloth.

The record will be entered into the books when Guinness receives the video and documentation of Bruns' record.

Benson knew Bruns was tough, but has his doubts about his ability to endure such a punishing session. Although the needles are removed after the attempt, the pain from the piercing often sends people into shock, stopping the record attempt.

"Ed's a freak. I thought he would've whined or something," Benson said. "If we would have let him, he would have slept."

While Bruns took congratulations from friends, one told him that he should take one more needle to make the record 1,502.

"If you want 1,502, you can break the record," Bruns said with a weak laugh.

A few minutes later a group of tattoo and piercing artists began the task of removing 1,500 of the piercings from his body.

Bruns will keep the last one, No. 1,501, on the back of his head with a small barbell through it.
