15520First purpose-built churchAqaba churchJordan, Aqaba31 December 0301The oldest known purpose-built Christian church in the world is in Aqaba, Jordan. Built between 293 and 303, the building pre-dates the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel, and the Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem, West Bank, both of which were constructed in the late 320s. The church is the first purpose-built Christian church discovered from the period before Christianity found favour with the Roman imperial government. It even pre-dates the greatest of all the Roman anti-Christian persecutions, that of Diocletian in 303-313. The church, the ruins of which were excavated in 1998, is in the form of an east-west oriented basicila, with apse and aisles. It also had a narthex and chancel. Excavation has unearthed walls up to 4.5m 14ft 9in high. During its first phase the church would have held about 60 worshipers it was later extended to hold about 100. The building appears to have been abandoned during the presecution of 303-311, then refurbished between 313 and 330. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 363.

15524Largest military division of marine mammalsUS Navy Marine Mammal ProgramUnited States, San Diego18 April 2003The world's largest military division made up of sea mammals, is the US Navy's Marine Mammal Program, of San Diego, California, USA, established in 1960. In April 2003 the program had 75 Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and 20 Californian sea lions (Zalophus californianus californianus) all trained for deployment.The program also had two beluga whales (Delphinapterus leucas), although as of April 2003 they were on a breeding program. The marine mammals are trained to safely locate and/or mark the position of enemy mines or divers, rather than as an attacking 'weapon'. They have such an advantage over other ocean creatures because of their diving, sonar and responsive training capabilities. The animals were recently seen in action, clearing a safe passage for ships in the port of Umm Qasr, during the war in Iraq in early 2003. Between March 24-18 April 2003 alone, the team of dolphins cleared 913 nautical miles (1,690 km), recovering 90 sea mines and destroying 11 more.

15526Oldest topiary gardenLevens HallUnited Kingdom, Kendal25 June 2003The world's oldest topiary garden is Levens Hall, Cumbria, UK, which has topiary designs that are over 300 years old, with the initial planting and training of them carried out in the 1690s. The shapes include Chess pieces, the Judge's Wig and the Great Umbrellas.The topiary triming takes many months, using lightweight aluminium scaffolding to reach the higher points.

15530Oldest horse stablesRamses IIEgypt, ancient city of Piramesse,in the Nile Delta01 January 1999The world's oldest horse stables were established by the Egyptian pharaoh, Ramses II (1304-1237 BC) to breed horses for war, hunting and recreation. They were discovered in early 1999 by a joint German-Egyptian archeologicial team headed by Edgar Pusch (Germany) in the ancient city of Piramesse, in the Nile Delta, Egypt.The stables are also believed to be the largest, covering approximately 17,000 m² (182,986 ft²) and housing 460 horses at one time. The stables were built on a slant so the horse urine could drain away and be used for fertilizer. A courtyard and horse-bathing pool were also discovered.Due to the fact that horses were essential to the expansion of the Egyptian empire, the need to have stables placed in strategic locations increased.

15540Fastest run 100 metres (male)Usain BoltGermany, Berlin16 August 2009With a time of 9.58 seconds Usain Bolt (Jamaica) Berlin, Germany 16 August 2009Bolt shattered his own record of 9.69 seconds exactly one year to the day when he won the Olympic gold medal. This run helped him win the gold medal at the World Championships. Tyson Gay (USA) ran the third fastest time ever (9.71 sec) to finish second.Every sport has its heroes, but few reach the level of fame attained by sprinter Usain St Leo Bolt (JAM). Not only holder of the 100 m and 200 m records, he is also the first athlete to win the 100 m and 200 m at successive Olympic Games. But how did the fastest man become an athletics superstar?Usain Bolt was often accused of being hyperactive when growing up. In his early teens, he turned to sport as a way of putting this excess energy to good use.Bolt’s first passion was cricket, but on noting his speed, his parents encouraged him to focus on track and field. His first medal – a bronze – was achieved at his high school at the age of 13. Although it was for 80 m hurdles, this early win served to galvanize his athletics ambitions.In 2002, he made his global debut at the IAAF World Junior T&F Championships in Kingston, Jamaica. Running the 200 m in 20.61 sec, he earned his country’s only individual gold at the event, aged just 15.Despite a period of illness, Bolt came back fighting at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, breaking records for the 100 m, 200 m and 4 x 100 m relay – all of which he beat again in subsequent competitions.Asked how he felt about receiving a medal during GWR’s 60th anniversary (above), Bolt told us: “When one thinks of Guinness World Records, automatically, extraordinary and remarkable comes to mind. So for me to be included, I am truly honoured and delighted.”
