Idaho men break Guinness record for behind-the-back disc catches

June 14 (UPI) -- A pair of Idaho men who lost the Guinness World Record for most behind-the-back flying disc catches in 1 minute reclaimed their title with 67 catches.

David Rush, who has broken more than 150 Guinness World Records to promote STEM education, initially teamed with Mike Beacham to break the record with 51 catches, but their title was taken by a Japanese team who managed 57 catches during a TV show taping.

Rush said it took multiple tries to reclaim the record, and one attempt with 68 catches was disqualified when he stepped over the line that denoted the 15-foot distance required by Guinness.

The pair ended up reclaiming the record with 67 catches. Rush said he believes that with more practice they could break their own record with 70 or more catches.
