Harlem Globetrotters Set Six New Guinness World Records

Nov 15, 2019/CHASE CENTER

In honor of Guinness World Records Day, the Harlem Globetrotters added six new Guinness World Records to their growing list of accomplishments. The Globetrotters now own a total of 22 records. The Globetrotters set the records Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, Arizona and were verified onsite by official Guinness World Records Adjudicator, Christine Fernandez.

The records set were varied and impressive. Globetrotter veteran Bull Bullard broke two record titles for the furthest under the legs basketball shot as well as the record title for the farthest behind-the-back basketball shot. Bullard now owns four Guinness World Records titles overall. Guard Wham Middleton set the record for the most bounced basketball figure eight moves blindfolded in one minute.

Hammer Harrison broke the record title for the longest underhand basketball shot, while Handles Franklin broke the record title for the farthest kneeling basketball shot made backwards.

The Globetrotters continue to astound audiences and will conjure that same sense of fun when they bring the Pushing the Limits World Tour to Chase Center for two shows on Saturday, January 11, 2020. If you want to experience the Harlem Globetrotters and their unique brand of entertainment, it’s not too late to get tickets to the first show or the second show.
