    Sorry you feel that way, Hunter, but a precedent was set earlier on this record when they made the same ruling about a different video, simply subtracting a can from the total when the person threw two cans at once. This wasn't the first time they made that decision.

    Money will not be split. I'm sorry Jordan -- this decision is out of our hands.

    as in what the rules say, you shouldnt accept it if you throw two in at a time

    Is that what they meant, Jordan? That wasn't what I got from Dan's post, but maybe I misread it.

    Following extended dialogue with the team at Stride today, we need to provide clarity about what a "tie" is. We were incorrect in believing that any category in which two or more people submit the same approved value is counted as a "tie." A "tie" only happens when two or more people submit EXACTLY THE SAME VALUE at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME.

    For this category and all others in which there are ties, the FIRST entrant to submit an approved value will be recognized as the winner. Later attempts which match that value will be recognized as DENIED attempts. This stays in line with our existing RecordSetter policy, in which you need to BEAT an existing record in order to gain world record recognition.

    We are incredibly sorry for the confusion on this issue. It's an unfortunate situation, and one we feel badly about. As a token of our apology, we will send a RecordSetter t-shirt and a copy of The RecordSetter Book of World Records to all of those affected directly by this issue.

    Jordan's right. And hey, I'd rather split it than get nothing! Congrats, Jordan.

    Jordan, your final and 37th can did not fall within the 30 second time limit.

  • response to previous attempt United States Jordan Yaun

    Jordan Yaun

    why is my 36 cans a fail when its a tie? and why was my 37 cans denied??

  • response to this attempt United States Rob Birdsong

    Rob Birdsong

    Hunter - thanks for your note. We noticed the same thing, hence the count "36" instead of "37".

    We have decided to accept the attempt and subtract the "double throw" noted by Austin and Justin.
