SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This year’s San Diego Comic-Con (Jul. 22-25) is destined to break major records.

Guinness World Records and its editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday, will be on hand at the geeky event all weekend to judge several record attempts and present official certificates.

It all began yesterday (Jul. 22) with a wacky feat by competitive eater Joey Chesnut, who tried to smash the record for “Most Chocolate Bars Eaten In One Minute.” He ate 20.

Then, Sylvester Stallone accepted honors on behalf of Rocky as the “Most Successful Sports Movie Franchise.”

Today (Jul. 23), legendary letterer Todd Klein will accept the Guinness certificate for “Most Eisner Awards In One Category,” having won 15 of the comic book Oscars over his career.

Meanwhile, wrestlers Randy Couture and Steve Austin will be saluted for their record time in the ring, the tallest structure built with LEGOs – 99-foot-one – will be praised, and Comic-Con itself will go down in the books for drawing so many attendees.
