At the Zappos.com Bay to Breakers road race in San Francisco, California, Megan Oxland set a world record for Most Bead Necklaces Worn At Once.
The record was one of 40 set that day, allowing the race to set an additional record for “Most World Records Set at a Road Race.” See all 40 records at RecordSetter.com/Zappos.
Pushing the limits of both blood circulation and neck strength, Opus
Moreschi tied a whopping 97 neckties around his neck at once, a new
universal record. The ties, which featured everything from cartoon
characters to corporate logos, weighed a combined total of 7.4 pounds.
Moreschi’s daring feat was performed on February 11, 2009 at a World
Record Appreciation Society event at Pianos, a New York City bar.
His face turned slightly purple as he set the record, forcing witnesses
Corey Henderson and Kate Sullivan to periodically check his pulse.
