On 15 September 2012, Beth Johnson (USA) demonstrated the world’s largest yo-yo in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Measuring 3.6258 m (11 ft 10.75 in) in diameter and weighing 2,095.6 kg (4,620 lb), the disc plunged 36.5 m (120 ft) on a rope attached to a 68-tonne (150,000-lb) crane before successfully rebounding.
She tested it three times prior to achieving the record, but it crashed on each occasion. Beth spent many hours fixing it before her fourth – and successful – attempt.
