Did you know there’s a Guinness World Record for throwing a washing machine?

Neither did I.

But American strong man Sean McCarthy just crushed it.

The previous record was held by four-time World’s Strongest Man Zydrunas Savickas with a throw of 13 feet, 6.6 inches in Italy last year.

Sean was supposed to attempt to break the record on July 17th but the attempt was cancelled due to weather conditions.

On July 31st the Cincinnati Reds gave Sean another chance and he went all out, throwing the maching a whopping 15 feet, 9 inches.

And now you have the video.
