Sept. 13 (UPI) — An Idaho man broke a Guinness World Record by using his hands to move more than 114 fluid ounces of water between two containers.
David Rush, who has broken more than 200 Guinness records to promote STEM education, said the record-keeping agency provided him with specific rules regarding how large the openings on his containers were allowed to be.
The goal to beat was 87.9 fluid ounces, which was set by Pakistani record-breaker Usman Ayyub in 2019.
Rush took the record by moving 114.1 ounces of water in the 30-second time limit.
Rush said he measured his results in three ways: using the markings on his container, by weighing the result and subtracting the weight of the container, and by pouring the water into another container with more granular markings.
