Wasn't it Galileo who supposedly said "Nevertheless, it turns." ?
Guinness can decline to keep records, but that's eventually just going to mean someone else will take their place. They'd accomplish more by recognizing her record, and publicizing her video clips where she was discussing how scared she was. Show that it has been done, and show how dangerous it can be. Like Tanya Abbei, who said she couldn't figure out how to use a sextant when she left NJ and was extremely lucky not to have missed Bermuda and been lost at sea before her first landfall.
Maybe Guinness will also stop publishing football records, since the NFL has finally come out and officially said all that head-banging is killing their players and putting them into dementia in huge numbers at early ages?
