The home of world records breaks a record in Dubai

Biggest, fastest, longest, tallest ? the UAE collects superlatives, and world records, like some other nations collect Olympic medals.

The number of such achievements has grown to a level that has prompted Guinness World Records has decided to open a Dubai office to keep tabs on them all.

“The UAE currently holds 102 records,” said Talal Omar, the Middle East representative for Guinness World Records.

“So establishing an official presence in the Middle East has been a direct response to the demand for record-breaking in the region.”

The office will open next year and, if recent history is any guide, its staff will have their hands full.

Record-holders say there is much about the UAE that makes it an appealing place to take on a challenge.
