The founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries achieved a speed of 32.02mph (51.53 km/h) on his third and final timed effort over a lake in Reading, England.

World records were also broken in the United States where the Harlem Globetrotter, Thunder Law, achieved the record for the highest upward basketball shot. Law threw 15.26m (50ft 1in). Law's new record means basketball players from the Globetrotters hold 17 Guinness World Record titles.

Also in the USA, the gymnast brothers of Giuliano and Fabio Anastasini broke the record for the most Risley flips in 30 seconds. The brothers, both members of New York's Big Apple Circus, achieved 32 flips.
