Kids who etched their names in the Guinness book of World records
You will not believe how talented these children are!
The idea for Guinness book of world records first came about in 1950s when Sir Hugh Beaver (1890—1967), Managing Director of the Guinness Brewery, could not get the answer to the fastest game bird in Europe in any book. There came about the idea of the Guinness book of world records which holds a record of every big thing that has happened around the world. But it is not only older men or women who break records every day; several children have also since years broken many records. Take a look at some of these amazing children…
