British Taekwondo expert smashes 923 roof tiles to set new Guinness Record

Taekwondo expert Lisa Dennis from the UK recently smashed the record for the Most roof tiles broken in one minute (female).

The tiles were arranged in stacks of 10 tiles. Lisa began the attempt by smashing two stacks of tiles at a time; one with each hand. She then alternated to one stack at a time with one hand.

Only 2 tiles from the stacks she hit during the 60 seconds time period did not break, meaning that the 40-year-old taekwondo pro achieved an incredible record of 923 tiles.

On 26 Mar 2014, Lisa also set the female record for Fastest time to break 1,000 roof tiles, clocking 83.98 sec in Orpington, London, UK.
