World's oldest trapeze artist and a dog that can jump six feet are among America's latest weird and wonderful entries into the Guinness Book of World Records 

10:30 • 07.09.18



A dog that can jump more than six feet is among the weird and wacky champions revealed today in the 2019 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.


Feather, a greyhound rescue from Maryland, USA can jump 191.7cm (6ft 3in), which is only a few centimetres less than the British women's record set by Katrina Johnson-Thompson at the Rio Olympics in 2016.


Samantha Valle, 31, Feather's owner, says her talents became apparent when she saw her jump so high she hit their basement ceiling.


She then began to train Feather to jump over hurdles an soon she was hopping over 150cm “effortlessly”.


Another competitive canine scooping up a world record in Geronimo, a border collie - Australian kelpie cross, also rescued by Samantha.


Geronimo holds the record for the most double dutch-style skips by a dog in one minute, at 128. The human record was is 133 and was achieved by Huang Junkai, Jiang Dali and Jin Zhenyu from Shanghai in September 2017.       


After six weeks, Samantha had an idea to add a skipping rope into the mix when Geronimo was proving difficult to train - it soon became clear that Geronimo was a complete natural.


Samantha takes great pride in seeing the promise in animals that others have left behind and trying to bring out the best in them.


'Sometimes it takes a certain person to come along and see the potential in a dog to make them even greater' she says.


Someone that might be very popular with Geronoimo and Feather is Barry John Crowe who took the title of most sausages made in one minute at a whopping 78.

The 28-year-old from Cavern, Ireland began helping his parents in the family's butchers shop aged 10 and has been perfecting his sausage-making skills ever since. 


Barry now runs the family business and dreams that he'll make his parents proud. He credits his parents for instilling the confidence that remains with him today - allowing him to create an impressive range of 36 different sausage types, even including some of the chocolate chip and honey comb variety.

Tom Bagnall, 26, from Staffordshire, is the proud owner of the world's fastest jet-propelled go-kart, that travels at 112.29mph. Tom's mantra is to take the slow and mundane, and supercharge them to achieve the fastest speeds possible, and with his jet-propelled go-kart, he has made a record-breaking start. He broke the record on CBBC's Officially Amazing, in York on September 5 2017.

Elizabeth 'Betsy' Bond, 31, from Wiltshire, has created the world's largest knitting needle at 14ft5in (4.4m) long. By showcasing exactly what art students can accomplish, she was immensely proud to achieve her record and spark lots of conversation amongst her peers, she says 'Everybody has potential if you just keep striving and pushing forward. Give it a go, what's the worst that can happen?'
