Press Release - Iowa Man to Attempt Guinness World Record
Local Man Seeks To Break World Record in Dubuque
Dubuque, IA – October 26, 2011- Tom Rauen, owner of Envision Sports in Dubuque, Iowa announced that he will attempt to beat the world record for most T-shirts worn by a person at one time. “Breaking a world record is one item on my bucket list,” Rauen said. “I chose this record and because my family business is primarily t-shirt printing, I thought it would be a good fit.”
Rauen contacted Guinness Book of World Records earlier this year, and received notice that Philip Robertson from Guinness Book will adjudicate his world record attempt. The attempt will take place on Friday, November 11, 2011 at Mojo’s Sports Bar, located on the 2nd floor at Diamond Jo Casino. The public is invited to watch Rauen’s attempt. Admission is free and open to people who are at least 21 years old. Rauen’s attempt will begin at 7p.m..
Tom Rauen has been lifting weights to prepare for the 2.5 hour event. Past world record holders in this category have largely been from the USA. Tom is determined to bring the record back to the United States. He’ll be attempting to successfully break the current world record of 245, earned by a Croatian just last year.
Rauen is seeking sponsorships for each shirt that he will be using to break the world record. Proceeds will benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Rauen has two brothers who were diagnosed with Diabetes at a young age, “so helping raise awareness and funds for the Foundation was an easy decision,” Rauen said.
