Kortney Olson burst three watermelons in just 7.5 seconds, nearly halving Ukrainian bodybuilder Olga Liashchuk's Guinness World Record of 14.65 seconds, which was set in 2014.

Olson - who is also a bodybuilder - beat the male record too, which was set at 10.88 seconds by Iranian athlete Rohollah Doshmanziari.

She smashed the records at the opening of her new athletic clothing store in Las Vegas on 4 June.

"I just decided in correlation with our store opening because it's a community space and we really want to start utilizing the space to teach things, to share this watermelon-crushing story with younger girls," Olson told the Times-Standard.

She said she was confident she could break the record, as she had previously done it unofficially in 11.36 seconds, and she added that no Guinness World Record officials were in attendance this time around due to the pandemic.

She continued: "You've got to have two witness affidavits, you have to use two official stopwatches that are within a tenth of a second, and then you take the average of your two timekeepers.

"You go through quite an extensive application process and then go from there."

LADbible has contacted the Guinness World Records for comment.

Clearly though - official or unofficial - she made light work of those melons, which should come as no surprise, given that she teaches a watermelon-crushing class.

She explained: "I have an eight-week watermelon crushing course that I've just actually filmed in virtual reality.

"And because national watermelon day is 3 August, my goal is really getting as many women and girls starting on this programme because it's designed to be done at home.

"There's a portion of it that goes through how to pick a watermelon, technique on squeezing, visualization, understanding beliefs, societal beliefs that women are the weaker sex.

"My vision is just seeing a tonne of women on 3 August on National Watermelon Day crushing the crap out of some watermelons."

So if you wanna learn from the best, you know where to head.
