Boot-throwing record broken at National Plowing Championships
Written by Angie Sharma on September 21, 2023
The National Plowing Championships in Ireland hosted a Guinness World Record attempt where 995 people threw Wellington boots into the air at the same time.
The annual agricultural show and plowing contest in Ratheniska, County Laois, featured hundreds of waterproof rubber boots flying through the air at the same time in a record attempt organized by youth farming group Macra.
The previous record for most people throwing Wellington boots simultaneously was set at 792 at the Holsworthy and Stratton Agricultural Show in England in 2018.
Macra said evidence from the attempt is now being submitted to Guinness World Records for official certification.
The Wellington boots used in the attempt will be donated to schools across Ireland.
