A Chinese student just made it to the Guinness World Records 2017 for being the fastest man walking on two hands — with a soccer ball clutched between the legs.
Zhang Shuang accomplished the feat by walking a 50-meter distance in just 26.09 seconds.
The record for fastest 50-meter walking on hands — without the soccer ball — is 16.93 seconds. It remained undefeated for 22 years.
The 24-year-old’s attempt was carried out at China West Normal University, located in Nanchong, Sichuan, China.
Zhang studies sports, and it’s easy to tell from his great physique.
Zhang is also an incredibly hard worker, training for about three years to achieve a record. According to Guinness
, he “trains every day from very early in the morning until late at night.”
The new record-holder is thankful:
“As a successful Guinness World Records title-holder, I feel pleased that my daily training has paid off. I’m also grateful to my trainer and for the love and support of my family.”
Back in January, Zhang attended the CCTV Guinness World Records TV show in Beijing, where he attempted to make the fastest time to climb and descend 40 steps by hands. However, he lost to SWAT police Fan Congcong
, who set the bar at 31.7 seconds.
Zhang hopes to set more records in the future, so you can bet he’s not stopping from walking this way anytime soon.
