Triple M’s Pete Timbs smashes world High Fives record

Pete Timbs has sore hands – sore from making 14,607 high fives at the 2012 Bridge to Brisbane. Pete has smashed the Guinness World Record for the Most High Fives Achieved by an Individual in 24 Hours. And he did it in 5 hours flat.

In doing so he has also raised $10,000 for the Kids Help Line – the amount donated by Suncorp if he got to 10,000 high fives, thus breaking the previous record, which was 9,325.

The previous Guinness World Record holder was American Roy Tuscany in San Francisco, California, USA – he set the record over a 24 hour period from 5-6 November 2011.

The reason Pete was high fiving was because he has done his hamstring and can’t run, but still wanted to be part of Triple M’s support of the event.
