DAI ANDREWS The World's Greatest Sword Swallower



In 2007 Andrews worked alongside Dr. Sharon Caplan and other physicians at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore MD USA. The study was conducted to determine whether the techniques involved in sword swallowing could be used to help patients who suffer from achalasia or those who had suffered severe throat trauma and were having trouble swallowing as a result.

On September 12, 2009 at Pimlico Race course in Baltimore, MD USA, Dai Andrews swallowed a sword that was curved 120 degrees from point to hilt. This record was certified as an official Guinness World Record™ in 2009, and included in the print edition of The Guinness Book of World Records in 2012
Andrews also holds three other world records for sword swallowing!
