Rolf Buchholz from Germany has an incredible 516 body mods. Rolf’s body adornments, which feature in the new Guinness World Records 2019 book, include 481 piercings – with 37 in his eyebrows and 111 around his mouth – two subdermal horn implants, a split tongue and five magnetic implants in the fingertips of his right hand. He also has approximately 90% tattoo coverage. IT consultant Rolf has been modifying his body for almost 20 years. He had his first piercing and tattoo on the same day, aged 40.
Rolf sported a brand-new look for our exclusive #GWR2019 photo shoot. He has run four marathons in the past two years and lost around a third of his body weight.

Butcher Barry John Crowe from Ireland has a knack for sausage making that’s earned him a sizzling spot in our #GWR2019 book.
Since he was 10 Barry has been making sausages at his father's shop in Cavan, Ireland, which has been the family business for over 43 years.
He has won awards for his sausage making skills from the age of 13 and has invented various sausage flavours, from cheddar cheese and chilli flakes to chip shop curry.
And Barry’s advice for anyone else looking to become a record-breaker? "I’d love to just say to people: go for it. If you feel that you can do a Guinness World Records title, go for it!" ____________________________________________________

Matt Denton's hexapod is a magnificent mechanical marvel which features in the
new #GWR2019 book, out now, featured in our Meet the Makers section. It measures in at 2.8m x 5m (9ft 2in x 16ft 4in) and weighs almost two tonnes.

The British engineer was inspired as a child by the AT-ATs from Star Wars, and from then on has had a fascination with walking machines. Matt also credits his childhood love of building with @lego "LEGO Technic sets… fired up my imagination as a child. I probably wouldn’t be doing what I do now without them." Matt even went on to work on to achieve a childhood dream working in robotics on the set of @starwars The Force Awakens. Click the link in our profile for the full story.

Oldest professional club DJ Sumirock knows how to get the party started. The 83-year-old from Tokyo, Japan is one of our many amazing #GWR2019 global book launch stars. Click the link in our profile to find out more 🙌🎶 Sumiko Iwamuro runs a Chinese restaurant and works as a cook by day, but swaps her spatula for sequins once or twice a month to DJ at Club Decabar Z in Tokyo. The transition from cook to DJ took dedication from Sumiko, who went to a DJ academy at the age
of 77 after her friend suggested it to her.
Her friend's support and her belief that you need to “try something and don’t give up” has resulted in her realising her DJ dream later in life.

Proud gardener Hans-Peter Schiffer from the town of Karst in Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany holds the record with this incredible 9.17 metres (30 feet 1 inch) plant. Hans-Peter, who works as a flight attendant, has held the record continuously three times previously - in 2009 (8.03 metres), 2012 (8.23 metres) and 2013 (8.75 metres) 🌻

Growing such extraordinary sunflowers isn't always easy. There were clouds on the horizon for this record achievement when a thunderstorm and hailstones damaged his 2014 crop of prize sunflowers. "It was a very sad day for me," said Hans-Peter, "because the hail destroyed nearly all the leaves. But nevertheless, my sunflowers continued growing." The local fire brigade kindly helped out with the process of measuring this mighty plant.

Davide received his first Coca Cola can back in 1982 when he was just 5 years old, beginning a lifetime's obsession with the soft drink. His record was confirmed on this day in 2013.
Soon after, Davide began collecting the distinctive tins, with his father bringing him home unusual designs when returning from his European business trips.
Today, he searches the globe for can designs which only appeared in shops for a limited time or sometimes never even released to the public, including rare gold and silver coloured cans released in various countries for Christmas and special sporting events🥤 "The most valuable cans are those produced from the factory for a special moment. Like gold cans produced for plant openings or special anniversaries. But these cans are very limited and very rare," the passionate collector explained, ahead of his appearance in our #GWR2015 book with the record title 'Largest collection of soft drink cans - same brand'. _________________________________________

The longest 'usable' golf club measures 9.29 m (30 ft 6 in), and was achieved by Michael Furrh (USA), in Waterchase Golf Club, Fort Worth, Texas, on 17 November 2017.
As with most athletes, Michael is quite competitive. He has broken the record a total of four times, having first held the record in 2015 with a club measuring ‘only’ 6.87 m.

Though he reclaimed the title from Ashrita Furman in 2016, he decided last year to beat his own record with a new club which is 2 ft longer than his previous best.

Masao and Miyako Matsumoto from #Japan are now officially the world’s oldest living married couple with an aggregate age of 208 years 259 days as of Wednesday 25 July.
On that day Masao was 108 years 16 days while his Miyako was confirmed as being 100 years 243 days old.
The couple married in 1937 with their 81st wedding anniversary coming up in October. In that time they’ve had five children (all daughters), 13 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren, with their 25th expected this month.
Miyako was still preparing family meals at the age of 98 while her husband continued to watch sport until earlier this year when his eyesight reached a point which meant he was no longer able to watch his favourite games on TV.
Nevertheless, their love for each other has seen them enter the record books.

The most planche push ups in one minute is 36 and was achieved by Temur Dadiani (Georgia) in Tbilisi, Georgia, on this day in 2014.
Temur Dadiani is a double leg amputee soldier, who lost both his limbs after stepping on an improvised explosive device while on patrol in the military. He set the record three years to the day of the incident. "It may sound strange but I felt more motivated after a trauma. Regular exercise helped me discover new physical ability that sets me apart from others - I am able to do a lot planche push-ups with my 'half body'. I guessed it may have been the best chance to prove I live normally even without my legs." After completing his challenge of 36 planche push ups, Temur was exhilarated. "I felt absolutely amazing...it was probably the greatest day of my life." Temur wrote at the time: "Now I have one main goal - to get my record officially approved by Guinness World Records. It is the most important thing not only for me, but for all wheelchair users. I believe my success with be a huge inspiration for all." ________________________________________

The incredible Kim Goodman (USA) can pop her eyeballs to a protrusion of 12 mm (0.47 in) beyond her eye sockets! 👀 Here's Kim with @aljacksonig on @cbbc's Officially Amazing, which celebrates its 100th episode today 💯📺🎉 Measuring the “pop” is an exact science that has to be done by an optometrist using a device known as a proptometer; an average of three measurements gives the final, eye‑watering result. “Proptosis” is the term for eyeball displacement or bulging eyes. Kim discovered her talent when she was hit on the head by a hockey mask, but can now pop out her eyes on cue.

George Frandsen (USA) has a fascinating fossilised collection of dinosaur poop, confirmed as a new record on this day in 2015 🦖🦕💩 Fun fact: The term 'coprolite' comes from the Greek for 'dung stone'. As documented at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, Florida, USA, George has amassed an amazing 1,277 pieces of prehistoric poo since he began his collection as a palaeontology student at college.
George went on to feature in our  #GWR2017 book. “Anyone looking to beat a Guinness World Records title needs to have passion, lots of passion for whatever they’re doing. Mine is coprolite...whatever your passion is, you should follow it.” “What got me interested in finding and collecting coprolites is the story they tell of prehistoric life. No other fossil can tell you as much as a coprolite can. Inside you can find inclusions, which are pieces of plants and animals, such as bones.
This information can tell us about what animals were eating and their metabolism, as well as prehistoric ecosystems. In coprolites from my collection, I’ve discovered a tooth plate from a prehistoric fish called a pycnodont, a toe bone from a prehistoric deer, fish fins, shark teeth, and microscopic pieces of plants.” ___________________________________________

After vacating a corporate life the US resident no longer felt satisfied with, she decided it was time to embark on the global trek of a lifetime by jet setting to every nation across the globe. In a race against the clock, she finished what she calls #Expedition196 in a matter of 1 year and 193 days, raising awareness for World Peace through the International Institute of Peace Through Tourism along the way.

Cassie is impressive as she not only managed to beat the former record holder by over a year, but was the first woman to ever set this record title. Can you say #TravelGoals?!🌎🛩🗺 ————————————————————————-

Multiple record-smasher Muhamed 'Hammer Hands' Kahrimanovic recently had a crack at reclaiming his coconut crushing title in Germany 💪🔨🥥💦 Not all record attempts can be successful, but Muhamed, who originally hails from Bosnia and Herzegovina, made a most valiant effort here. Currently the record for the most coconuts smashed with one hand in one minute stands at 122, achieved by Abheesh P. Dominic in Kerala, India, on 18 February 2017.
Prior to this attempt, Muhamed’s long standing record of 118 had been held since 2011. His other achievements include 'Most baseball bats broken with hands in one minute, 'Most bottles broken with the hand in one minute' and 'Most drink cans crushed by hand in a minute'. Determined to have one last try, the veteran martial artist black belt who trains young people in taekwondo, kickboxing, boxing and MMA told our team: "I will attempt this record only one more time, on my 60th birthday. I decided that today. I will stop attempting if unsuccessful." We wish him the very best of luck.

Ernestine lived with her owners, Jude and Dan King in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to the grand old age of 23 years and 76 days 🐷❤️ She was a three months old when she joined the King family as a piglet. As a cherished family pet, Ernestine was part of every birthday, anniversary, and other celebration - as you can see from these photos. “She lives in our house and loves to sleep most of the day, especially in the cold months here,” Jude told us at the time of the record confirmation. “But loves to get outside in the summer to bask in the sun.” When Ernestine was sold to the Kings two decades ago, she told them to expect her to live about 12 years. She went on to nearly double that prediction en route to history. "Well, she knows she's a big deal," Jude told CBC News. "She gets a few extra grapes and raspberries, you know, just cause she's old." ______________________________________________________

After 66 years of growth, record-breaker Shridhar Chillal from India has cut off his enormous fingernails - which will now go on display at @ripleysbelieveitornot in Times Square, New York, USA.

Shridhar's remarkable nails were first included featured in the Stop Press section of our 1979 book. They had remained uncut since 1952. Due to years of growing his nails and their weight, his left hand was permanently handicapped; he cannot open his hand from a closed position or flex his fingers. "I am in pain. With every heart beat all five fingers, my wrist, elbow and shoulder are hurting a lot and at the tip of the nail there's a burning sensation always."
