Indian teenager staying in the United Arab Emirates broke a Guinness World Record by hopping over a ruler 101 times in 30 seconds.
Guinness said Soham Mukherjee, an 11th-grader at GEMS Wellington International School in New Delhi, hopped on one foot forwards and backward over a ruler to achieve the new record for most side-to-side hops in 30 seconds.
Mukherjee completed 110 hops in the timeframe, however, 9 of his hops have been disqualified when Guinness reviewed slow-motion footage of the try. The 101 qualifying hops have been sufficient to interrupt the earlier report of 96.
Mukherjee mentioned his 13 years of learning taekwondo helped him put together for the report, which he determined to aim as a way of passing the time constructively throughout COVID-19 lockdown.
