Beijing-Based Sommelier Sets World Record By Holding 51 Wine Glasses In One Hand

Here’s a man who knows how to handle his wine glasses. Via the AFP video’s description: “Beijing-based sommelier Philip Osenton breaks the world record for the number of wine glasses held in one hand. The previous world record was 39, set in Spain, five years ago by Reymond Adina from the Philippines.”

Local nightlife blogger Jim Boyce was definitely impressed. “’He isn’t human!’ screamed someone* on Saturday afternoon as Philip Osenton held 51 wine glasses in one hand at the Hilton Bei… (* That scream might have been to myself. I’m still checking for confirmation.)”

I think we can all agree that it’s just good, after all the world records that have fallen around China, that Beijing has a world record holder of its own. There are some pictures of Osenton practicing his impressive skill over on Boyce’s site. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
