Controversy

On July 2, 2010, the Chinese state-run Xinhua news agency reported that Wuxor set a Guinness World Record for tightrope walking. It was later reported by Thomson Reuters, however, that Wuxor's achievement was not recognized by the London-based Guinness World Records. The certificate Wuxor received was from Shanghai Great World, whose Chinese name, "Jinisi", sounds similar to the Mandarin pronunciation of "Guinness". The firm is not connected to Guinness World Records, but is managed by the Shanghai Media Group, run by the Shanghai government. According to Guinness, the world record is held by Jorge Ojeda-Guzman, who spent 205 days on a wire in 1993.
