The record for the world’s largest rubber band ball was recently surpassed by a young shop worker from Lauderhill, Florida. Joel Waul, 27 has created a rubber ball made up of approximately 300,000 bands of different sizes that weighs 8,200lb.
The first record of the world’s largest rubber band ball was held by John Bain in 1999 whose ball weighed 3,120lb,but he was surpassed by Steven Milton of Eugene, Oregon who created a 4,600lb ball made up of approx. 175,000 rubber bands and recorded as the largest in November 2006 in Chicago.
Even if Waul’s rubber ball is already the largest in the world,he plans on adding 2,000lb but for the moment he’s out of material.After he reaches his goal,Joel Waul plans on submitting the ball to the Guinness World Records.
