Does anyone else remember flipping through Guinness World Record books when you were a kid and thinking how cool it would be to set one yourself?

To celebrate Guinness World Record Day, we’re rounding up some of the most impressive (and unusual) records Hoosiers are claiming.

🏄 Longest time spent surfing a wave (female)

Lori Keeton takes the wake for this, tripling the previous record + more than doubling the male record. Not only is this an impressive feat, it’s also a noble one, as Lori made the attempt to raise awareness the nonprofit Wake for Warriors, which supports veterans.

💻 Most laptops toppled in a domino fashion

A total of 2,910 laptops were knocked down one after the other by Technology Recyclers — a locally owned + operated recycling service that allows Hoosiers to get rid of their old electronics for free. Watch the world record unfold.

🏈 Most NFL game wins in a single decade

Believe it or not, our very own Colts set this record with 115 games from 2000 to 2009. This was the golden era of Indy football with Tony Dungy as head coach + Peyton Manning as starting quarterback.

🍎 Most apples picked in eight hours

We’re bringing it back to the year 1980 for this record, which was set by George Adrian of Adrian Orchards. He collected 15,830 pounds of the favored fruit + has never been usurped as record holder.

🏀Most steals per game average

International Citizen of the Year + former Indiana Fever star player Tamika Catchings claims this WNBA record, which was set in 2016. In 457 games she made a total of 1,074 steals between the years of 2002 and 2016.

These are by no means the only records Hoosiers have set, but I might have set a new record for the longest story about world records if I had shared them all with you.
