July 8 (UPI) -- An Idaho man threw chopsticks to burst 55 balloons in one minute to break a Guinness World Record -- his 180th concurrently-held title.

Serial record-breaker David Rush previously held the title for the most balloons burst with chopsticks in one minute when he managed to pop 24 balloons with his hand-thrown projectiles, but it was later broken by someone who popped 28.


Rush retook the record by bursting 41 balloons, but lost it again to a record-breaker who managed to pop 47.

The record-breaking master said he spent two months preparing for his latest attempt, throwing a total 10,000 chopsticks into cardboard boxes to fine-tune his speed and aim.

Rush successfully captured the title once again by popping 55 balloons in the 60-second time period.

The record marks Rush's 180th concurrently-held Guinness World Records title, putting him in a tie with the world's top record-breaker, Italian man Silvio Sabba.
