The Guinness Book of World Records has accepted my proposal and now recognizes "The World's Largest Jockstrap" as an official event open for competition. In addition, Guinness has invited me to be the first to attempt to set the record by creating a jockstrap 10 times larger than an existing one.

This challenge has kept me busy for sometime but I have recently completed the sewing and I have had it digitally scanned and measured by a surveying company, which is required for the record attempt.

The surveying company has been very generous and has cut their service fees in half totaling $850.00, which brings me to KICKSTARTER. Once I am able to cover the service fees I can submit the information to Guinness, along with photos and witness statements.

The process will take roughly 4 weeks for Guinness to review the materials and to notify me with the results. This is the first of three events that I have created for Guinness and I hope to continue on in the future with your generous support.

Knowing the extremes: the biggest, the smallest, the fastest, the most and the least, offers a way of comprehending and digesting an increasingly complex world overloaded with information.
