‘Iron Man’ sets record

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

A BRI­TISH in­ven­tor billed as a real-life ver­sion of the su­per­hero Iron Man has hit 51km/h in a body-con­trolled jet­pow­ered suit, a Guin­ness world record. Guin­ness an­nounced the feat as part of its an­nual World Records day.

Other marks an­nounced in­cluded a Swedish baker’s record for the world’s largest ve­gan cake, which weighed more than 450kg.

Har­lem Glo­be­trot­ter Thun­der Law suc­cess­fully made a bas­ket on a 50-foot high hoop for a new mark – his fourth in­di­vid­ual record.
