In the United States, a 23-year-old Englishman set a new world record..for domino toppling on Saturday (9 June).
SYNOPSIS: These are the dominoes...all 169,712 of them. The idea of the sport...to set off a chain reaction by toppling the first onto the next, and so on until the end. Michael Cairney, an English civil engineer, started the toppling, for his attempts at the world record. He narrowly failed in Tokyo last month, after taking two weeks to set up the elaborate and intricate patterns...like these, to be toppled in a few minutes.
The end of the line, and a new world record for Michael Cairney..the final domino electronically triggering a camera...Cairney placed a telephone called to London to claim a world record, with the Guinness Book of Records.
