The Guinness World Records world record for the most football neck catches in one minute is 35 and was achieved by Sinan Öztürk (Germany) in Mittweida, Saxony, Germany, on 13 November 2014.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most behind-the-back flying disc catches in one minute; it is 24 and was achieved by Tim Habenicht and Daniel Habenicht (both USA) in College Station, Texas, USA on 6 May 2012. Daniel was assigned as thrower and Tim as the catcher.
"Kirk aiming for the butt, great strategy, perfect position to get my hands behind my back. We did it," Brown said.
"I always wondered when I was born if I would do something special, and today I think I have," Cousins said laughing.
Cousins and Brown previously set the Guinness World Record for one handed catches with 40.
