The Guinness book of world records is probably familiar to everyone. Many yearn to perpetuate their names in this almanac. Sometimes, even, this idea becomes the meaning of someone’s life. So, one Australian, about 30 years kept ... the trash congregating in the belly button in order to be listed in this reference! And he had collected no less - a three-liter jar of this content. Generally, the Guinness Book of world records does not disdain anything. Each year you can find a lot of ridiculous and even unpleasant records.
And meanwhile among our countrymen, only a few people know about the existence of the record book of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Information-encyclopedic reference of Kazakhstan), where only positive unique achievements of people in our country can be found. Perhaps that is why it is not as popular as its source. But, nevertheless, our Book of records has existed since 1999. During all this time, publishing is only increasing its volume.
The author of the idea of creating the Kazakhstan’s record book (Kazakhstan information-encyclopedic reference) is Turan University, where this reference is presented annually. However, in contrast to Guinness, there are no fees for the domestic Champions. They are only awarded the certificate confirming the uniqueness of their achievements. Each year the publication introduces the Kazakhs with their unique compatriots, whose records, as the chief editor of the Book said, are worth not only Kazakstan’s record book, but Guinness.
We are offering you to get acquainted with some records of Kazakhstani people, who were recorded by Kazakstan’s record book in different years.
Assel Andagulova and twirling hula-hoop
A circus woman Assel Andagulova is still the only one in our country who can skillfully twirl with the entire body 50 hula hoops at the same time. But Assel is not complacent, and she wants to beat her record.
Woman-magnet Karlygash Nigmetova
Karlygash Nigmetova received the recognition of Kazakhstan, along with the place in the Kazakhstan’s record book due to her strong biofield, which gave the holder the opportunity to draw to her body, like a magnet, metal objects. But the record is to hold metallic objects weighing up to 8 kg simultaneously in your body. And they are not only cutlery, but also more heavy artillery – weights and irons.
The main donor of the country Alexander Skakovsky
This record is honorable and shows an example for all citizens. Alexander Skakovsky was awarded the certificate for record number of times he donated blood voluntarily. So to his sixty-something years (at the time of listing his name in the record book) had donated blood 862 times! This is in total 470 liters of healthy blood. He goes to the point of delivery once a week as to work. For a good cause Alexander Skakovsky was awarded the UN certificate and many awards from the country. At the moment Alexander has already exceeded the number of donating blood over a thousand. At such rate Kazakhstani record holder will be soon listed in the Guinness Book of world records, where he will move with his figure already recorded Australian, who has such 1040 donor “gifts” on account.
