I have a question about world records. It seems to me that a true “world record” would be one person performing a standardized event faster or scoring more points than anyone else in human history. If the event is standardized and strict procedures are followed it should not matter at which event the record was broken or set.
My question is how is the IAM and the other memory organization handling world records. Does anyone know if the Guinness World Record organization has set standards and rules for memory events such as speed cards and numbers? I know the image event is relatively new so that record is probably managed by the IAM but other memory events have been around for decades. Does anyone have inside information on this subject? Thanks
