Well the 2012 Olympics is almost here and the world's top athletes will be competing against each other and the record books. So we here at Newslite are celebrating in the only way we know how -- by looking at some of the weirder sporting champions.
Together with Guinness World Records, who have released the e-book 'Totally Bonkers Sporting Champions' we will count down to the London games with one quirky record holder per day.
Today we meet John Evans who balanced a gutted Mini car weighing a total of 159.6kg (352lb) on his head for 33 seconds at The London Studios, London, England, on May 24, 1999.
The Totally Bonkers Sporting Champions ebook is available on iPad, Nook and Kindle.
