An Idaho man is celebrating accomplishing an unusual goal of breaking 52 Guinness World Records in 52 weeks. David Rush breaks Guinness World Records to promote STEM education, said he set out to break one record a week in 2021.
David Rush is an author, speaker, electrical engineer, and STEM advocate. He is also the holder of over 200 Guinness World Records.
Rush’s attempts had started last January with stacking wet bars of soap. He then managed to slice the most kiwis in a minute using a samurai sword while standing on a Swiss ball.
His feats included stacking soaps; bouncing balls into five plastic cups in record time with the help of a friend; juggling balls for 52 minutes while standing atop a Swiss ball; swiftly setting up a chessboard, and balancing nearly 20 glasses in his mouth.
The hardest record he broke in 2021 was the fastest 100-meter dash while juggling blindfolded. To break that record, he had to stay in his lane for the full 400 meters that involved accelerating and getting up to speed.
