How many times can you clap in a minute?
In a video, a man purportedly breaks the world clapping record, with 802 claps in a minute.
The Guinness World Records must still verify the claim from Bryan Bednarek’s YouTube video, which was uploaded on June 2, 2013. The young Bryan is shown clapping in a rhythm with his eyes closed and headphones on. An iPhone times the amazing feat while a tally of claps increases in line with the rapid procession.
“How on earth was that counted?” says one comment to the video, while another one reads, “Don’t applaud yourself before you finish.. oh wait.”
Currently the record is held by American Kent “Toast” French who clapped his hands 721 times a minute in 2003, which he calculates as 12 claps per second.
