Truth around the world: some people have too much time on their hands
Another World Record for New Zealand
-Cricket world record one day - the world's largest tape ball the next-
Two young Kiwis have put New Zealand on the world map by gaining a Guinness World Record for the world's largest tape ball.
The record tape ball weighs a staggering 53kgs and has a circumference of more than 2.5 metres.
Alexis Fletcher and Ben Naylor, both Massey University students, have spent the last two months trying to beat the record previously held by an American whose tape ball weighed only 45.65kg - about seven kilograms lighter than the New Zealand tape ball.
