Heroes of Record Breaking: Ashrita Furman

Post on April 5, 2013 @ 4:23 am

This video clip brings together two of my favorite things: HBO’s Real Sports—and Ashrita Furman, who holds More World Records than Any Other Individual on Earth. If I were in charge of the world, this man would be the Highest Paid Athlete on the Planet. Sadly, I am not in charge of the world, and so I will have to be content admiring his inspiring records for pancake catching and underwater pogo-sticking from the pages of the Guinness Book and from the odd news feature, instead of from the front page of every newspaper on earth as he deserves. Ashrita Furman, I salute you!
