A determined 76-year-old from Derbyshire, UK, attempted to beat the world record for most wineglasses balanced on a person's head with an impressive stack of 350. A small crowd gathered at Trowell Garden Centre in Nottingham on December 4 to watch John Evans's record attempt. Evans already https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/search?term=john%20evans&page=1&type=record&max=20&partial=_Results holds several Guinness World Records for balancing items on his head, including pint glasses, balls, and even bricks. Evans told Guavo.Media: "I'm a family man now, and at 76 years old I want to prove to everyone that it doesn't matter how old you are. Anything is possible if you try and put in some dedication. You can do anything if you truly believe in yourself. I am living proof of that!" https://www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk/news/people/derbyshire-grandad-claims-guinness-world-record-for-balancing-wine-glasses-on-head-4436135 According to local media, Evans walked 10 feet while balancing 350 wineglasses on his head. The record attempt lasted 35 seconds and the glasses were returned safely afterwards. Evans was spurred on to the attempt after seeing 62-year-old Aristotelis Valaoritis https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/news/2023/10/cypriot-man-shatters-record-with-319-wine-glasses-balanced-on-head-759912 successfully balance 319 glasses on his head in October this year - a record that ended with Valaoritis smashing all the glasses. "I am the World's Best Head Balancer, and there's no beating me! Ain't no challenger able to do it better than I can," Evans told Guavo.Media. According to Evans, he developed his knack by carrying bricks on a board on top of his hat when he climbed ladders as a builder's laborer. Evans's record attempt has not yet been verified by Guinness World Records. (Footage by Guavo.Media/Storyful via Getty Images UGC)
