    Seeing your Hills hoist makes me homesick!

    Denied. He goes off camera and there seems to be a cut in the video.

  • United States Alex Cunningham

    Yeah, I would've declined this record. I thought it was just going to be an issue of an error in the video editing, but this wasn't truly in two minutes since he fixed the hoop.

  • The Internet Fleur

    I am in awe.

    Well done, Berg. Question: should this really be in "two minutes" given the fact that you paused the timer?

    Also, if anyone ever tries to beat this record, I'll be super stoked.

      Thanks for the interest Dan. There are certainly some areas to tidy up if this record is challenged. I feel I have set a fairly low bar to begin with and will happily re-attempt if this initial bench mark is superseded.

      I think that, since he mentioned the stopping and restarting in the video, and he originally set the record, the timer pause should just be regarded as a stipulation for this specific record. I would just put a rule saying that if your equipment malfunctions, you are permitted to pause the timer while you reset everything.

    Ouch. Also, what is a "flared" suit?

    • Australia Berg 121

      A flared suit gets wider the closer you get to the ankles. Some people refer to this style as 'Bell-Bottoms'.

      In any event, the thick wool of this ensemble certainly got quite hot during this record set at the height of the Australian Summer.
