One of the more unusual boomerang world records is that of the ‘most consecutive catches’. This is currently held by Haruki Taketomi of Japan, who after throwing for an extraordinary 11 hours and 41 minutes, managed to make 2251 consecutive catches of a boomerang. He managed this spectacular feat in 2009, and amazingly broken the previous record by over 1000 catches.
