Man breaks the record for world's fastest fingers

June 08, 2017

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt has the world’s fastest feet, but a Portuguese-American musician, Domingos-Antonio Gomes — aka 'Antonio Domingos' — has proven he has the fastest fingers, after smashing the record for the most piano key hits in one minute.

Guinness World Records last week announced that the pianist played the key B7 at an astonishing  824 times in one minute, which is more than 13 hits a second.

Gomes, who has been playing piano since he was seven years old, spent about four months training for the challenge, and beat the previous record by 59 hits.

“I broke this record in order to gain visibility in the international world of music by demonstrating my athletic prowess on the piano,” Antonio told Guinness World Records.
