For her work, she has received two received two world record awards: one for the longest running educational program in world history and the other for the longest running presenter of a television program on the small screen (television).

The awards were given to Doña Inés by  Ralph Hannah, the Guinness World Records representative in Latin America, who travelled from London to Costa Rica to attend the ceremony Saturday night at the Intercontinental hotel.

Sitting next to Doña Inés at the head table were Presidenta Laura Chinchilla, the Presidenta’s parents, Rafael Ángel Chinchilla and Emilce Miranda. Also on hand were former presidents, Abel Pacheco and Luis Alberto Monge.

The name of Ines Sanchez and the Teleclub are already part of the history, but not officially in the Guinness book until 2015, as the edition of 2014 and is closed.
