Nigerian Boy Becomes Guinness World Record Holder For Most Skips On One Foot (Photo)

Another 17- year-old pupil of Oyemekun Grammar School Akure, Ondo State, Philip Solomon, has been declared the Guinness World Record holder for most skips on one foot in 30 seconds.

On January 24, Solomon officially recorded 153 skips on one foot in 30 seconds to outdo former record holder Rasel Islam of Bangladesh whose record was 145.

 

His record was officially confirmed by the Guinness World Record on Tuesday, four months after his attempt.

“Solomon was inspired by the previous holder of this record title Rasel Islam after seeing a video of his record attempt. He has been training to achieve the record and was honoured to attend a skipping world championship,” Guinness World Record announced on its website.

Solomon has joined his Ijapo High school, Akure counterpart, Gbenga Ezekiel, who was in February declared the world record holder for most skips on one leg in one minute with 265 skips, to increase Nigeria’s rope skipping Guinness World Records to two.

The senior secondary school three students also said he was inspired by the feat of Gbenga Ezekiel earlier this year.
