You don't have to be an Olympic athlete or rocket scientist to be a Guinness World Records holder either ­- we treat every claim with the same degree of professionalism and respect, whether you¹re a chainsaw juggler, a sick-bag collector or the next Usain Bolt.

The Guinness World Records database is packed with stories from people like you from across all walks of life - people who've set themselves seemingly impossible goals and shown the determination and resolve to achieve them.

This is your chance to shine a spotlight on your unique ability or achievement and bring it to the attention of a global audience.

Millions of readers enjoy dipping into the Guinness World Records book each year, and our TV shows are shown in almost every country on the planet.

So come on, why not apply today? Who knows -­ this time next year, you might even find yourself the proud owner of an official Guinness World Records certificate.

Good luck!
