I've been trying to nail this down for years. I once read that the only world record still held by Kneivel (all his jumping ones having been superceded) was "most number of bones broken". Does anyone know if this is true?

He may have just splinted them himself and shrugged it off. After breaking your femur five times, I imagine a broken finger is just a scratch.
