49 year old Eddy McDonald (Fast Eddy) from nearby Hamilton Ontario broke the record, under the watchful eye of a Guiness official, for the most hop the fence yo-yo tricks in one minute.
On his second attempt, Fast Eddy completed 145 tricks with his yo-yo. This breaks the record of 144 tricks set in 2008 in the United Kingdom.
McDonald is no stranger to fame having performed in more than 25 countries around the world and featured on numerous television shows.
The event at the museum, found on Clifton Hill (Niagara’s Street of Fun), was to showcase a global celebration of the 12th consecutive Guiness World Record Day.
Congratulations to Fast Eddy MacDonald.
