Winnipeg has two new entries in the Guinness World Records book! Connor Lawrence and Shayne Pheifer have officially broken the record for most behind-the-back flying disc (Frisbee) catches in one minute. Lawrence caught 34 discs on his first attempt at the record.
The duo broke the world record of 31 catches on September 12, 2017. It wasn’t made official until January 31, 2018. The record was previously set by Brodie Smith, a popular American disc league player and trick shot personality.
The guidelines included having to be five metres apart, not even stepping a toe over the five-metre line. They also had two time-keepers and two anonymous witnesses present, each providing an official statement for the record.
My chat with Connor and how they did it. Congrats!
