It has been a long time coming, but today I got this email from Guinness World Records in New York:
All fine here and I have good news!
The record has been accepted and this is the text to appear in the certificate, but let me know if there is amendment to make (I just received an email from the RMT department):
“The longest journey by skateboard was 12,159 km (7,555miles) and was completed by Rob Thomson (New Zealand) starting in Lausanne, Switzerland on 28 June 2007 and finishing in Shanghai, China, on 28 September 2008.”
Check the dates and so…
Let me know! And congrats!
So there you have it.
Just goes to proove that even every-day people can get world records too.
I’ll hold back any other comments until I have the actual certificate in my hands…but there you go.
Icing on the cake.
