Longest and highest wire walk set World Record by Swiss stunt artist

Swiss stunt artist set World Record for cable car stunt on highest German peak

Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany - Swiss stunt artist Freddy Nock set a spectacular world record Saturday, by walking almost a kilometre along the cable that carries passengers up Germany's highest mountain.


He plans to submit his feat for entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the "longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole".

Nock, 46, gained 348 metres in altitude as he walked - without a balancing pole or security harness - along the 50-millimetre-thick cable that transports the cable car to the top of the Zugspitze mountain, in southern Bavaria.

The gradient reached 57 degrees in places, almost equivalent to the angle between 12 o'clock and 2 o'clock on an analogue watch.

This feat enabled Nock to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

Most hugs Guinness World Record by Nick Cannon

Most hugs Guinness World Record by Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is aiming for a place in the Guinness World Records after staging a stunt aimed at earning him the title for the most hugs given in one hour.

    “I would like to invite everyone to come help me break the Guinness World Record and let’s ‘Hug It Out,” Cannon, 31, said in statement prior to the event, which went down before last night’s (August 19) Mets vs Brewers game at Citi Field in New York.

According to reports, the “Rollin with Nick Cannon Morning Show” host spiced things up by giving all participants in the hug-fest a commemorative Nick Cannon Mets T-shirt and awarding the first 100 huggers with free tickets to that night’s MLB game.

In a post on his website, Cannon – the recent father to twins with wife Mariah Carey – posted , “I am going to make History!”

Cannon’s record attempt has yet to be verified by Guinness officials, but he would have had to beat the current best of 1,749 hugs in an hour, which was set by Nick Vujicic on Sept. 25, 2010.

Regardless of the outcome, the fun-filled event was a sucess as Paper Jamz of WowWee said it would donate one toy for every hug to benefit the children at the Mets Care Room at the New York Hospital of Queens, CBS reports.

Northwest Washington Fair - Largest hayride ever breaks world record

Northwest Washington Fair - Largest hayride ever breaks world record

LYNDEN - Sure there's the Zipper and the Galaxy 3000 and the Ring of Fire, but the real ride to be on at the Northwest Washington Fair Saturday, Aug. 20, wasn't on the fairway.

It was slow-moving, with no fast drops or gravity-defying tricks. Just 300,000 pounds of hay on 10 semi trailer beds, pulled by a snow plow. But after an 11 minute, 12 second loop through the dirt in the Grandstand, it broke the world record for the largest hayride ever.

It didn't just break the record either. It obliterated it. With 639 people - teens, families with babies and grandparents - sitting tight on the hay, the ride more than doubled the previous record of 249 people set in South Carolina in 2010, Guinness World Records adjudicator Kim Partrick said.

For the people who hit the hay to break the record, it was a very memorable day at the fair.

"It was awesome being a part of something really special," said Custer resident Norma Hachett, who was on the hayride with her daughter and grandkids.

Her grandson loves hayrides and already wanted to go again once it was over.

"On my bucket list, I figure breaking a world record is on there somewhere," said Bellingham resident Erik Gibson. "This is the easiest way for me, sitting on a pile of hay."

The mastermind of the hayride was Sean Taylor of Lynden's Big Oak Ministries, who was approached by fair manager Jim Baron about breaking a record at the fair. He worked with people at Guinness to come up with the best record to break that could include a lot of public participation and decided on the hayride. Safety was a top priority, with test runs of the trailers on the loop, training for the volunteers and safety advice from LTI trucking, which provided the trailers and support.

Taylor felt good to watch the record-breaking ride go off without a hitch Saturday, but he doesn't know about setting up another record-breaker for next year. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work.

"I might be a one-record guy," he said. "We'll see."

If he does give it a shot again, though, Lynden resident Karen Boon will be all over it. She was one of the first in line to take part in the hayride.
