Larry Fields karate champ breaking bats, bricks, boards, and ice chunks break world record

Larry Fields karate champ breaking bats, bricks, boards, and ice chunks break world record

Larry Fields gets his kicks breaking bats, bricks, boards, and ice chunks.

He started out breaking clay bricks when he was 11 and now at age 41 and 225 pounds he is still breaking things — including world records.

Fields, owner of Abilene Mixed Martial Arts, is headed to Orlando, Fla., for the U.S. Open karate tournament on July 1-2, where he will attempt to set a world record by breaking 19 Louisville Slugger bats with his elbow in 10 seconds.

He already holds the world record of breaking 11 bats in 10 seconds at the 2010 tournament in Orlando.

Fields said the bat-breaking attempt will be July 2 and will be filmed by ESPN to be aired later that day.

Asked why he chose to break bats, Fields said he wanted to do something different.

"He used to break up a lot of wood blocks," his wife Terry Fields said. "He got bored with it and started breaking bats."

Fields, who said he has broken 19 bats in practice, said it is difficult because he has to move fast.

"I do have a sore elbow sometime afterward," he said. "I use just one elbow for the event."

Fields is no stranger to television. He was on the Jay Leno show in 2004, and he has been interviewed several times for other shows.

"ESPN3 will interview me if I do well with breaking the bats," Fields said. "The event will air again about two weeks after the tournament."

Abilene Mixed Martial Arts center is filled with hundreds of trophies. Many of these belong to Fields who has set 25 world records in various events. Others belong to his students who have set 52 world records.

World's largest apron set Guinness World Records by Ambadi Enterprises

World's largest apron set Guinness World Records by Ambadi Enterprises

Ambadi Enterprises Ltd., a part of the USD 3.8 billion Murugappa Group, displayed the world’s largest apron on the grassy expanse of YMCA grounds at Chennai. The all white apron measuring about 25 metres x 22 metres (total fabric area of 853 sq. metres, weighing 100 kgs) is expected to beat the current Guinness record of 15.4 metres x 17.6 metres held by a Spanish Manufacturer since 2007.
718 metres of 20sx20s sheeting greige fabric purchased in Karur (Tamil Nadu) was transformed to the final apron displayed at Chennai (Tamil Nadu) today, by the joint effort of teams at the different units of Ambadi. The fabric was bleached at Erode and the apron outline was sketched at the design studio at Gurgaon (Haryana). Finally the cutting, stitching and printing was done at the Kannur unit (Kerala). The cutting team of 26 women spent 182 man-days to cut the fabric and the stitching team of 8 spent 40 man-days to put the apron together.

“The teams had to overcome a few difficulties during the whole process – including, having to factor in the Kerala monsoon effect. For instance, they didn’t have enough space to lay and cut the fabric and had to lay it in the vacant lot outside the factory even as the monsoon rains were threatening to pour down. The Ambadi logo measuring 5 sq metres was a critical part of the design and took longer time to print and dry in the damp weather. In all, the efforts have paid off and today, we have been able to put out a bold statement about our capabilities,” elaborated Vishy Shenoy, Business Head - Ambadi Enterprises.

Ambadi is one of the largest exporters of Textile Fabrics, Home Linen and Floor Coverings from India. In the Company’s line up, apron ranks as one of its high volume products at 500,000 aprons per year. The Company supplies to the top labels in the world including Target, Williams – Sonoma, Kymo and Crate & Barrel.

Maria Gomes Valentim - World's oldest person dies in Brazil

Maria Gomes Valentim - World's oldest person dies in Brazil, just short of age 115

A Brazilian woman listed by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest person died Tuesday, just weeks shy of her 115th birthday. The title now reverts to a woman in the United States.

Maria Gomes Valentim died of multiple organ failure, said Helerson Lima, a spokesman for the nursing home where she lived. Valentim would have turned 115 on July 9.

Guinness said Tuesday on its website that Valentim, "the first Brazilian super-centenarian to hold the title," died at the age of 114 years, 347 days.

On May 18, Guinness determined that Valentim was 48 days older than the person previously considered the world's oldest human, Besse Cooper from Monroe, Georgia.

"With Maria's passing, the title of Oldest Living Person reverts back to American Besse Cooper, age 114 years 299 days," Guinness said.

The Georgia woman's son, Sid Cooper, said Tuesday that his mother is doing well at her Monroe retirement community.

"She's gained some weight, she's eating real good," Sid Cooper said.

"Her memory is still really good," he added. "She remembers things from a long time ago and recognizes people."

Guinness verified that Valentim was born on July 9, 1896, in the city of Carangola in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais. She lived there all her life.

Last month, Guinness said on its website that Valentim, who was known as "Grandma Quita," attributed her longevity to a healthy diet: eating a roll of bread every morning with coffee, fruit and the occasional milk with linseed.

Valentim's family told reporters that she had a stubborn streak and always made a habit of minding her own business. They also said that her father lived to be 100.

"She says she has lived long because she has always taken care of her own life — and not meddled in the lives of others," granddaughter Jane Ribeiro Moraes, 63, told a local newspaper in May.

Valentim married her husband, Joao, in 1913. He died in 1946.

Valentim is survived by four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren. Her only son died at age 75 in the early 1990s.

Valentim was scheduled to be buried Tuesday afternoon at the Carangola cemetery.
