Become a record breaking hero!
Always wanted to break a world record? Here is your chance! Impossibility Challenger invites you to have a shot at the impossible. Pick a record of your choice, train hard and come to Berlin to perform your feat on stage for a live audience.
“We are all truly unlimited,
if we only dare to try and have faith.”
-Sri Chinmoy, founder of Impossibility Challenger
Impossibility Challenger is a record festival that provides a platform and an opportunity for anyone to try and break a world record in any non-Olympic discipline. The records can be athletic, funny, creative or even a bit silly, as long as they are challenging and require some serious training or preparation.
Your record has to be measurable and requires a clear target defining when the record is broken. For instance, if you aim to blow up the most balloons in one minute, you will need to define at which size the balloon is considered blown up and how many blown-up balloons you need to get the record. We sometimes encourage ‘silliness’, but never bad taste. Controversial records will not be accepted and all records are subject to review by the organization.
Impossibility Challenger was founded in 1982 by peace visionary and weightlifter Sri Chinmoy with the idea to inspire people to challenge their personal limitations and experience the thrill of going beyond their present capacities. The event is sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Centres.
“To build the new you break the old
The surprised world salutes the bold”
