Louisville City FC Heretics unofficially break a world record

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hugging as fast as he can to break a world record and bring some attention to his favorite team.

That was the scene before the Louisville City FC game Sunday after James Pizzolato unofficially broke the world record for "most hugs by an Individual in one minute."

He hugged more than 80 people.

That beats the current record of 79 hugs, but Guiness still has to confirm the new world record.

"It feels great. I mean I just 85 hugs in a minute. What better feeling is that? They weren't the most emotional hugs but it feels really, really exciting," Pizzolato said. 

The attempt was put on by the Heretics, a Louisville City FC supporter group.
