Guinness World Records 2019: Latest record-breakers unveiled

The latest breakers of weird and wonderful records have been revealed as the new Guinness World Records 2019 is published.
This amazing dog Feather's owner knew that she was destined for great things when she saw Feather jump so high that she hit their basement ceiling! So she began training her to jump over hurdles and within no time at all, Feather was clearing 150cm with no problem. Now, she holds the title for highest jump by a dog after clearing a 191.7cm hurdle!

At 10 years old, Barry John Crowe began helping his parents in the family's butchers shop. Now, he has taken the title for most sausages made in one minute, churning out a tummy-turning 78 bangers. He absolutely loves his job and can create a whopping 36 different types of sausages, including chocolate chip and honey comb-flavoured ones!

Feather isn't the only dog in the record book. Jessica and her owner Rachael will be... er... jumping for joy... as they have retained their record, after securing most skips by a dog and person in one minute using a single rope, back in December 2016. The pair racked up an amazing 59 skips!

The Met Office recently announced that 2018 was the joint hottest summer on record for the UK - and the hottest ever for England. Well, how much more bearable would that heat have been if you had this incredible water pistol to hand?! This amazing water pistol is 1.22m tall and 2.22m long, created by Mark Rober, Ken Glazebrook, Bob Clagett and Dani Yuan all from California in the US.

Samantha, who owns record jumper Feather - also owns another rescue dog called Geronimo, who has made it into the Guinness World Records 2019 too. The female Border Collie and Kelpie cross has taken the title for most double dutch-style skips by a dog in one minute! Don't try this with your own dog at home though, as you may injure them. Samantha is a proper trainer and knows what she's doing - clearly!

Most of us will have had a go at hula-hooping at some point, but we bet you've never managed to spin as many rings as Dunja Kuhn from Germany. She managed to spin an incredible 59 hoops, taking the record for most hula-hoops spun simultaneously on multiple body parts. Impressive!

Ever dreamed of having your own robot? Well, Matt from Winchester made this a reality - and bagged himself a Guinness World Record in the process, after building the largest rideable hexapod (six-legged) robot. The machine is a massive 2.8m tall and 5m wide. Matt says his love of engineering began at a young age, when he received his very first Lego kit and was only made stronger after a trip to the cinema to see Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back when he was eight years old.

She is a restaurant owner and cook by day, but by night she becomes rock-star DJ Sumirock, giving her the official title of oldest DJ. Does she get tired? Not a bit of it! "Doing something totally different is energising,” she says.

We all think our pets are pretty amazing, but check out Bibi's dice-balancing skills! This talented feline has bagged a world record after balancing 10 dice on its paw. All we'll say is there are a lot of dice all over the floor at Newsround HQ as it turns out we're not as talented as this cat...

Tom Bagnall, 26, from Staffordshire is now officially the owner of the world's fastest jet-propelled go-kart, which travels at an eye-watering 112.29mph! The project took him a year to complete, after he became fascinated with speed from a young age. This developed into a love for engineering. Well, it seems to certainly have paid off, Tom!
