DUBAI: A 17-year-old Indian boy in Dubai set a Guinness World Record for most side-to-side hops in 30 seconds after he jumped across a ruler 101 times.
“The record was measured by a close-up slow-motion video so that the line object and my feet are clearly seen,” Soham Mukherjee said.
Hailing from New Delhi, Mukherjee managed to break the previous title of 96.
The Indian boy completed 110 hops, but nine were considered invalid by Guinness.
Soham has been involved in many sports including football, badminton, table tennis, and basketball. But what helped him breaking this specific record title is his long history of 13 years in taekwondo, which requires a lot of leg work, according to him.
The young boy, who will turn 17 on 19th of July, said he is attempting another record in aerobics.
