Joe Ayoob, a former college football quarterback at Cal went to a hangar at McClellan Air Force Base, near Sacramento and threw a paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches, officially breaking the world record by 19 feet, 6 inches.
Outside of his record smashing throw Joe has had a pretty interesting athletic career according to ESPN:
Playing quarterback for two seasons at Cal, succeeding Aaron Rodgers and competing alongside future NFL stars DeSean Jackson and Marshawn Lynch. Prior to that, he went 23-1 as a starter at City College of San Francisco and guided his high school team to two section championship games.

The plane was designed by John Collins and he has four cool plane designs on his website if you’re interested in trying to enter the paper airplane game.
