World’s largest arepa set Guinness World Record by Venezuela's largest food company cooks

CARACAS, Venezuela — Employees of Venezuela's largest food company cooked the world's largest
arepa Wednesday, producing a flattened corn flour patty weighing 1,087.31 pounds. It was
19.7feet across.

Arepas, which vaguely resemble Mexican tamales, are a traditional favorite in this South American country and neighboring Colombia. The patties are usually stuffed with fillings like shredded beef, cheese or black beans.

Ralph Hannah, a representative of the Guinness Book of World Records, certified the record weight after the giant arepa was cooked for hours over a heated metal plate and the water used to mix the dough evaporated.

The previous record weight for an arepa was 440 pounds.

Ashby School attempts to break world record for the largest rugby scrum

Students and staff from a Leicestershire school say they are confident they have broken the world record for the largest rugby scrum.

The 126 members of Ashby School's Bullen House made their attempt under the supervision of two adjudicators.

Guinness World Records will now examine photographs and video of the scrum to establish whether the school has beaten the existing record of 68.

The sponsored event was in aid of the Matt Hampson Foundation.

The charity was set up by the former Leicester Tigers player, who was paralysed from the neck down when a scrum collapsed while he was training with England's Under-21 team in March 2005.

It helps to raise money for seriously injured sportsmen and women.
Motivational talk

Mr Hampson visited the school last month and gave the students a motivational talk.

Student Tom Watts, who took part in the record attempt, said: "Hearing Matt Hampson talk about what he'd been through made us think that, if he can do that, we can do anything."

The participants attended workshops "to be taught how to take up the scrum position" for the world record attempt.

Teacher Nick Morse, who ran the sessions, said: "The purpose of the scrum training was to let them all know where they were supposed to be in the scrum, where their heads should be and how to bind together in the right way so they didn't collapse.

"It was a non-competitive scrum with no pushing so there was no danger of anyone being hurt," he added.

The possible record-breakers are now preparing for their next challenge - a 23-mile sponsored walk from Ashby School to Welford Road, the home of Leicester Tigers.

Enrico Schoeman and Andre de Kock riders claim fiery Guinness World Record

Enrico Schoeman and Andre de Kock ride their Kawasaki sidecar combination through a tunnel of fire to set a new Guinness Book of World Records mark of 67.9 metres.

Two South African stuntmen have claimed a new world record at the Tarlton International Raceway near Krugersdorp.

On Monday night Enrico Schoeman and Andre de Kock powered their modified Kawasaki Z1000 motorcycle-sidecar combination through a 67.6m inferno to snatch the record for driving through a tunnel of fire from American stuntman Clint Ewing, who set the previous mark of 60,96m riding solo on a Suzuki superbike in Los Angeles on January 27, 2008.

The spectacular attempt, deemed too dangerous to be held at various public venues by Ekurhuleni health and safety officials, went off without a hitch. Once the diesel and petrol-soaked cardboard and steel structure was ignited by a pyrotechnics expert, there was a small window of opportunity for the pair to make it through. Guiness World Record rules require the entire tunnel to be burning from the time of entry to the time of exit.

With the flames reducing visibility inside the tunnel to almost zero, professional photographer Schoeman had to remain focused on a white line drawn down the middle of the inferno to keep the three-wheeled racing machine from smashing through the flaming walls with devastating consequences.

The crowd held their breath for several seconds while all that could be heard from within the crackling tunnel was the reassuring scream of the Kawasaki’s engine. Then, to a roar of approval, they blasted out the other side in a shower of sparks.

A victory “doughnut” added a last puff of smoke before the relieved pair punched the air in victory. When asked what it was like, motorsport journalist De Kock said it was “hot”. Still limping from a severe burn sustained while preparing for the event, De Kock went on to say he could have “held on a bit longer”.

The clock hit 6:30p and Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide simultaneously hopped-to.

At the Red Bank chapter, on Drs. James Parker Boulevard, unit director Shniece Perry was slightly tentative.

About a dozen of the club’s members had just finished practicing a timed run of jumping jacks, readying for the early evening attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people doing simultaneous jumping jacks across multiple venues.

“They just did a little practice run to see how long two minutes is,” Perry said. “We hope that they last.”

In the one that counted, one girl called uncle with about 30 seconds to go, while the rest kept with the clock in hopes of breaking the record.

It’s yet to be seen whether the national organization will make it into the books. Perry took a roll of all who participated and will submit the information to the Boys and Girls Club.

The two minutes flew by with a little motivation from Perry and club employee Aaron Styles, who put out the rallying cry, “jumping jacks, jumping jacks, who can do jumping jacks?”

“Me, me, me, me,” the kids responded.

Then time was up, and the kids went limp and exhaled.

“That shows you’ve got what it takes to be healthy and stay on top,” Styles said. “Remember this: you be great.”
