Largest foot rotation (male)
Renato Bayma Gaia
البرازيل (São José dos Campos)

The largest foot rotation (male) is 210.66 degrees and was achieved by Renato Bayma Gaia (Brazil) in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, on 21 January 2024.

Renato decided to attempt for this Guinness World Records title to once again represent his country (Brazil) and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, his football team.

He also wanted to make this attempt a homage to Curupira, a character from Brazilian folklore, whose feet were turned backwards to confuse hunters and travellers in a way they couldn't capture as his footprints led them to his starting point. Furthermore, Curupira can also create illusions and produce an acute noise, similar to a whistle and drive his victims to madness.

Renato wants to defend his records such as Curupira, with all his eagerness to remain on top.
