    Dude Breaks World Record For Backflips On a Pogo Stick (Video)

    I’m not 100% sure what the previous record for backflips on a pogo stick was, but what I do know—judging by the title of this YouTube video—is that there is a new record for backflips on a pogo stick.  That new record is 15, and it was accomplished by some dude named Dmitry, who we […]

    One year ago we told you about surfer Garrett McNamara’s record-breaking ride, which saw him tame a 78-foot wave off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal.  Well, according to reports, it appears as though that record has been broken.

    15 Awesome Sports-Related Guinness World Records

    Every sport has sacred records. In baseball it’s the home run records—career and single season—though the hitting streak is also pretty special. Football has career rushing yards, or touchdown passes in a season, just to name two. Basketball has career points and, maybe more impossible to break, points in a single game. And of course […]

    Cans of tuna may soon be New Zealand’s biggest export following this catch by one of their country’s fisherman.

    Is Hitting 3 Backwards Half-Court Shots In A Row A World Record? (Video)

    While searching through the archives at GuinessWorldRecords.com, I came across some rather odd records, like “the longest distance keeping a table lifted with teeth,” “the fastest time to blow up a balloon with the eye,” and “the longest winning streak on Street Fighter IV.”  One record I couldn’t manage to find, however, was “the most […]

    Is This 70-Meter Basketball Shot The Highest Ever Made? (Video)

    Last month we showed you footage of some young males throwing a 120 yard hole-in-one on a golf course.  Originally I had figured it was nothing more than a bunch of guys with a new video camera and plenty of time on their hands simply trying to become the latest viral sensation on YouTube, but […]

    Her name is Naomi Kutin, but most people these days are calling her ‘Supergirl,” and rightfully so.  One year ago, Naomi witnessed her father weight-training, and asked if she could try.  He obliged, and at that moment ‘Supergirl’ was born. One year later Naomi has been living up to that nickname, as she set a […]

    For 44-years, Tommie Smith’s 200-meter record time withstood the test of timed track.  His 19.5 hand-timed record has survived some mighty big names over the years, but it couldn’t hold off American sprint star, Tyson Gay. Gay lowered Smith’s record time by 0.09 seconds on the straight track created at the Manchester Great City Games. […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/20/09 – Usain Bolt

    Total Pro Sports – We have been somewhat handcuffed in our stat line picks over the past couple of months, being left with little options other than baseball players.  Today that will change because of the performance put on in Berlin at the World Track and Field Championships by Jamaica’s Usain Bolt. He is the […]
