Guinness World Records Day (GWR Day) is an annual celebration of record-breaking, a day which sees thousands of people around the world come together with one common goal, to become a titleholder.
This year’s theme, Spirit of Adventure (which is also a chapter in Guinness World Records 2020), is central to the Guinness World Records family and is something shared among many of our iconic record-holders, from round-the-world cyclists to mountaineers and ultra-marathon runners. No matter where in the world you are or what you want to do – anyone can attempt a record on GWR Day 2019!
An Australian record-holder who definitely embodies the ‘Spirit of Adventure’ is Newcastle native, Rhiannan Iffland. Rhiannan is a 28-year-old cliff diver who, as of 2019, holds the record for most wins of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series (female). Rhiannan is a veteran of adventure, the world champion was a wildcard entrant into the Cliff Diving World Series in her debut year. Her 2016 performance earned her the bragging rights as the first-ever rookie competitor in the competition to win. The Red Bull Cliff Diving competition sees competitors dive from heights of 20 meters and reach speeds of 85 km/h.

Celebrate the dawning of a new decade with the fully revised Guinness World Records 2020. To kick off the ’20s, we’ve created an electrifying new cover and curated a record-breaking edition packaged with thousands of new, updated and classic superlatives, hundreds of never-before-seen images, and a selection of eye-opening photo-composites that put a new spin on record-breaking.
A new decade means it’s time for a fresh approach, so starting with our front cover, we’ve re-booted record-breaking with an all-new design. There’s a new look inside, too, and thanks to our team of digital artists, we’ve created mind-blowing poster pages that will reveal some of our classic record holders in a whole new light.
