Well done,
Does Guinness still use feet and inches measurements worldwide, or has Guinness gone metric in some countries ?

Probably feet & inches just for certificates in the U.S.A. I don't think we are ever going to convert over here.

My amaranth record was broken by a friend in New York State a week later. In fact, I gave him the seeds, and he grew them in his house, and then took a cutting and gave it to me. I took another cutting of that cutting and that is what I used to get a 23 feet 2 inch plant. His plant was 27 feet 10 inches. Hopefully, this year I can break that record. This plant can also get very large stalks. He had a couple amaranths with stalks 6 feet around. Remember, this is an annual; so they get this big in a single season. It's best to start them indoors under growing lights, but I have been able to get plants up to 21 feet direct sown in the garden.

Here is a video of a 6 feet stem circumference on a giant amaranth
