Man tosses tortilla 54 feet, five inches to break world record
David Rush, who has broken over 100 Guinness World records to promote STEM education, has done it again. He now holds the Guinness World Record for furthest tortilla throw.
Guinness posted a video of the feat on Youtube.
The Idaho native chucked the Frisbee-shaped food item a distance of 54 feet, five inches at the Science of Guinness World Records Exhibit in Toronto. The previous record was 30 feet, one inch.
Rush said his first throw bounced off a wall, so it didn't count toward his three official attempts. His redo first official throw also wasn't far enough. He didn't have much luck on his second throw when it bounced off the ground at one point in its flight and was disqualified.
However, Rush proved that third time's the lucky charm when his final throw was crowned the new world record holder.
