World's biggest arms

World's Smallest Dog - Scooter

The tiny ball of white fluff is just 8cm tall and measures just over 20cm from his nose to his tail. While Scooter is still young, he appears to have stopped growing.

The Guinness Book of World Records title holder - a long-haired chihuahua in America named Boo Boo - is bigger at just over 10cm tall.

Scooter's size is also evident in his weight, or lack of it. He weighs less than a block of butter at 400 grams - and that is while he is wearing clothes.

Owner Cheryl McKnight, from Gisborne on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island, fashioned a regular purple sock into a jersey, which Scooter wears so he is easily seen around the house.

"Dogs have to weigh at least 870 grams before they can leave their mums for the shops, and he has not even reached halfway."

As Scooter scoots around the lounge floor, he is dwarfed by plastic toy figurines belonging to Ms McKnight's grandson.

When friends come to visit, one of the first things they say is that they want to take Scooter home with them.

Scooter was originally named Pee Wee, but Ms McKnight decided to change the name, saying she didn't want him to suffer an inferiority complex.

World's Longest Football Match set Guinness World Record - Dalit Community India


World's Longest Football Match set Guinness World Record - Dalit Community India

FOOTBALLERS took extra time to a whole new level when they smashed the world record for the longest game ever played.

Teams from the Cotswold Churches league scored a whopping 626 goals when they played a continuous 35 hours of football.

The Guinness World Record for the longest match was previously 33 hours.


Cambray FC, made up of members of the Cambray Baptist Church, faced the Cotswold All Stars team, from players from the churches league, in a bid to raise £30,000 to build a school for impoverished children in India.

Kick off at Bishop’s Cleeve Football Club was at 6.30pm on Friday and the full-time whistle was blown at 6.30am on Sunday when torrential rain stopped play.

The All Stars were crowned winners with a final score of 333 to 293.

Cambray player Andy Champion, 37, said he was impressed by how competitive the game was.
“We started off quite fast because we were all so excited, but I was actually surprised by the pace of some of the lads hours into the game,” he said. “It was a great effort, but the main thing is raising money for the school in India. Every player has raised about £1,000 each.”

Each squad had 18 players, each on the pitch for three hours at a time before being substituted during a five minute break. The time accrued through the breaks was taken off the total mach time.

For every hour played they earned a five minute break which they could accumulate for a longer rest.
None of the players was allowed to leave the area around the pitch so tents were pitched up along the sidelines, where Guinness invigilators watched on.

Food and drink was brought to them by family, friends and supporters.


The teams had hoped to play for 40 hours, but the heavy rain made the pitch too dangerous.
Pete Sheppard, 24, was on the All Stars team, and said the tiredness was the biggest hurdle. “We did a lot of intense training sessions but they don’t prepare you for how long an ordeal this is,” he said.
“90 minutes is a long time but you are playing double that before you have a break. That last hour, everyone is really counting down the minutes.”
As well as smashing the world record, the players are on target to reach their £30,000 fundraising total.

The money will help the Dalit community in India, who are considered outcasts and denied access to public areas such as parks.

RED International will take the money raised to build a school for the children.

In 2008 Cambray Baptist Church gave money to build a school in Kalayarkovil for 450 pupils.
Footballer’s wife Emily McKeown, who helped organise the event, said: “Supporters have been coming through the night to watch them and have even pitched up their tents as well.

Oliver Hardaker - One Day Cricket Match World Record 2010

Highest Score in One Day Cricket Match World Record 2010 set by Oliver Hardaker

A schoolboy cricketer from north Yorkshire has scored what could be a one-day Cricket world record after bludgeoning 329 not out in an amateur cup match.

Oliver Hardaker blasted 27 sixes and 28 fours during his 144-ball local cup match knock that puts Indian master blaster Sachin Tendulkar in the shade.

Fielders could only watch open- mouthed as he pinged deliveries to all parts of the ground, at one stage hitting five sixes and a four in one over. The 18-year-old said there was only one chance to get him out – and that was when he was on 140.

‘It was the best day of my life. My best previous score was 100 not out,’ said Oliver.

‘I’ve played cricket since I was five years old and I would love to become a professional cricketer.

‘I’ve got Yorkshire Under-19 trials later in the summer.’



 Oliver’s mammoth innings came for Horsforth cricket club against Upper Wharfedale in North Yorkshire. Needless to say, his team romped to victory.


Edward Craig, deputy editor of Wisden Cricketer magazine, said: ‘I haven’t heard of someone scoring this many runs in 40 overs before. It is an amazing feat.’

Tendulkar holds the international world record, scoring 200 not out off 147 balls during a one-day match against South Africa in February.
