Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said: "It's all very well being a professional athlete, but what about the pea-shooters, toe-wrestlers and haggis-hurlers?
"Who gives these passionate sporting heroes the credit they deserve? Thankfully, Guinness World Records is here to congratulate and celebrate these unsung heroes of the track, field and bog."
