A Salmon Arm boy has gained entry to the Guinness Book of World Records for being an impressive Jenga stacker.

Auldin Maxwell stacked 693 blocks on a singular vertical Jenga block Nov. 29, 2020

“Auldin, 12, has wanted to earn a Guinness World Records title since he was six years old and has been balancing and stacking objects for as long as he can remember,” according to the Guinness Book of Records post.

“This is what made this record challenge such a natural fit for Auldin."

After the tower was completed, Auldin used a couple of his Guinness World Record book editions to topple the tower over for a finale with a flourish, but held on to the final Jenga block and keeps it on a shelf in his room to commemorate the event and his success.
