A Wisconsin Teenager Sets A New Guinness World Record For The Game ‘Jenga’
Most of us have all played the game Jenga and it can bring a lot of frustration, screams, laughs, and disappointment. But a teenager from Wisconsin has it mastered and now is a world record holder!
Nate McEvoy who is 16 years old, of Wausau Wisconsin, said his practice sessions were dedicated to figuring out the best patterns for removing the blocks and he sure figured it out. He managed to remove 32 Jenga blocks with a single hand and put them back on the tower in 60 seconds without it toppling over!
Talk about patients and perfect strategy. Although he already held the record of 25 blocks he continued to practice to beat his old record. McEvoy said to UPI.com:
Training wasn't too difficult, but it did take a lot of practice to figure out the best way to remove the blocks quickly and efficiently. Although my hand was a little shaky, I was still able to beat my record.
But believe it or not, this is not the only record that he holds. He also "holds the Guinness World Records for most Lego bricks removed from a baseplate and held in the hand in 30 seconds (22), most blindfolded passes of a fidget spinner in one minute (125), most hammer flips in one minute (103) and fastest time to build a 15-cup pyramid (2.55 seconds).
Believe it or not, he broke all four records, as well as his latest Jenga record, in a one-week period. He went on to say that being Guinness World Records title holder gave him a great feeling of accomplishment. And he knows with hard work you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. What a great kid to realize this type of success at such a young age, it will be amazing to see what he can accomplish in the future. Check out the video below to see how broke his old record.
