Man walks on bottles - level 3

Man walks on bottles - level 3

25-11-2013 14:00

With records being broken across the world on Thursday, one daredevil achieved not only one but two places in the book.

First up, Joe Alexander, who’s from Germany, beat the record for walking on the most upright bottles, balancing his way along 60 of them lined up in a row.

Not content with just one accolade, however, he than wowed Guinness judges by holding on to his record for the most darts caught in a minute, managing a total of 16 with his bare hands.

Visibly thrilled with his achievements, he had one plea for anyone competing for his crown.

“From Hamburg, to the whole world who’s watching, get inspired by these records. I’m happy to be here and don’t beat it soon, alright? Thanks a lot. Bye, bye.”

Difficult words: daredevil (person who does dangerous things), content (happy), accolade (award), wowed (shocked), dart (small pointed thing used for playing)
