Impossibility-Challenger is a record festival that provides a platform and an opportunity for anyone to try to break a world record in any non-Olympic discipline. The records can be athletic, funny, creative, as long as they are challenging and require some serious training or preparation. The Impossibility Challenger was first organized in Zürich, Switzerland in 1982. Sri Chinmoy, the founder of the Impossibility Challenger, visited the event twice in the following years. From 2002 on, the Impossibility Challenger took place also in Germany, New Zealand, Hungary and Portugal. The event is sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Centres. This year the event took place in Kladno, Czech Republic on November 12. The next edition of the Impossibility Challenger will happen on June 9th and 10th 2018 in Leiria, Portugal.
