This month Guinness World Records has partnered with US-based youth organisation 4-H to inspire kids to pursue their passions and accomplish new things each and every day.
Thanks to the Inspire Kids to Do contest, 4-H is not only empowering children with the skills they need to succeed, but is also challenging them to 30 Days of Doing with hands-on learning activities in agriculture, STEM, community service, healthy living and even a few record challenges.
Each day during 30 Days of Doing, 4-H is highlighting a young Doer of the Day, and Guinness World Records is delighted to be involved!
To celebrate the “go-getter” nature of the program, here are four record holders who have achieved amazing feats at a young age.
Most four-leaf clovers collected in one hour (individual)
11-year-old Katie (USA), who happens to also be in 4-H, has always been good at spotting four leaf clovers. She achieved the Guinness World Records title for the Most four-leaf clovers collected in one hour (individual) on 23 June 2018, by gathering 166!
Most claps in a minute
Put your hands together for Seven (USA) who broke the record for the Most claps in a minute on 12 December 2016. Seven, who was nine years old at the time of the attempt, broke the record by 60 claps, setting the record at 1,080.
Fastest time to solve three Rubik’s Cubes while juggling
While there are countless ways to solve a Rubik’s cube, Que Jianyu (China) decided to make the challenge even harder by breaking the record for the Fastest time to solve three Rubik's cubes whilst juggling. After training for two years, the 13-year-old was able to solve solve three Rubik's cubes whilst juggling is 5 minutes and 6.61 seconds and he did it live on the iDream of China TV Show!
