Australian Breaks Guinness Record By Drinking At 120 Bars In 24 Hours

By Oyinkan Somorin  

David Clarkson, a 69-year-old retiree, broke the Guinness World Record by visiting 120 pubs and ordering drinks in 24 hours.

Clarkson was born in Britain but has lived in Australia for over 40 years. He started his attempt with a drink at the Captain Cook Hotel in Sydney.

He walked to over 119 establish­ments in the next 24 hours, ordering a drink at each one.

Guinness World Records Adjudi­cator Pete Fairbairn joined Clark­son for the first four and final four hours of his attempt. 

Other witness­es accompanied Clarkson during the middle period of his pub crawl, collecting evidence for Fairbairn to review at the end of the day. 

Clark­son’s attempt came to an end at the Sussex Garden Bar, where Fairbairn certified his record. He won the title from Australians Harry Kooros and Jake Loiterton, who visited 99 pubs in 24 hours.
