Virginia woman sets Guinness World Record for loudest belch by a woman

SARAH MCCAMMON, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Sarah McCammon.

Last week, it was announced that a Virginia woman set a new Guinness World Record for the loudest belch by a woman. It wasn't me, I swear. Kimberly Winter recorded her attempt in April on air at a morning shock jock radio show.

(SOUNDBITE OF RADIO SHOW, "ELLIOTT IN THE MORNING")

KIMBERLY WINTER: (Burping).

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: It's 107.3.

(CHEERING)

MCCAMMON: At 107.3 decibels, Winter's belch is louder than a blender and some motorcycles. But, she says, I can be so much louder than that.
