I think that most people would like to leave their mark on history in some way or another. For some people, it may be a matter of having children and being a success in life, but there are other people who want to take things to an entirely different level.

Although there may be a number of different ways that you could leave your mark on history, perhaps the one that is within the reach of many is to set a Guinness world record. There are so many different options available, it is likely that you will be able to break at least one and get your name in the book.

One of the interesting world records that is always up for grabs, if you’ve got the nerve to do it, is to stack Jenga blocks on top of a single vertical block. It may seem unusual, but the amount of skill that is necessary to accomplish it is off the charts.

The world record that stood for quite some time was set by Tai Star Valianti. He stacked 485 pieces on one vertical piece to set that record. Then came Kelvin the Menga Man, who was able to stack 517 pieces, shattering the old world record.

That world record was going to be short-lived because it wasn’t long before Iamlei of Team Captain Noodles stacked 518 Jenga blocks into a single vertical sculpture.

We offer congratulations on this amazing accomplishment. You can enjoy it for yourself in the video below:
