NEW YORK -- A British inventor billed as a real-life version of the superhero Iron Man has hit the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit at 51 km/h, a Guinness world record.
The record keeper announced Tuesday's feat on Thursday as part of its annual Guinness World Records day.
Other marks announced included a Swedish baker's record for the world's largest vegan cake, which weighs in at more than 450 kilograms. Harlem Globetrotter Thunder Law successfully made a basket Sunday on a 50-foot high hoop for a new mark. It's the 17th mark accomplished by the Globetrotters, and Law's fourth individual record.
Guinness says more than 600,000 people are attempting to set records as part of the event.
