GeorgiaTeen Breaks World Back Handspring Record

As the Dad of a former gymnast, this is incredible!

Georgia Teen, Mikayla Clark, Breaks Guinness World Record For Most Consecutive Back Handsprings

A 16-year-old high school cheerleader has broken a Guinness World Record that is, quite frankly, flipping amazing!

Mikayla Clark, of Westlake High School in Atlanta, performed 44 consecutive back handsprings at her school’s homecoming game, beating out the previous record of 36. She started training for the big moment at the beginning of the football season.

“I was looking at world records and I just happened to see the most consecutive back handsprings,” she said in an interview with Fox Atlanta. “I clicked on the link and I was like, ‘Oh, she did 36, I think I can beat that.'”

The feat only took about 34 seconds, and as Clark performed, cheers from her teammates and her coach grew louder and louder as she approached the previous record number of flips and then passed it significantly.

“Most people can say, ‘Well, I won state, I did this.’ Now I can say I’m a world record holder,'” said the record breaking teen.

Although her official certificate hasn’t even come in the mail yet, she has already set a new goal for herself.

“My senior year, I’m going to flip field goal to field goal and try to break my record.”

Michelle Obama to Lead Socialist Jumping Jacks World Record

The First Lady is continuing her healthy living campaign to encourage kids to be more healthy by doing more physical activity, eating right,  and exercise.

As with her sneak visit to Target last week, which was posited as a socialist plot by conservative bigots –  undoubtedly she will accused by conservative haters for picking “Socialist Jumping Jacks” for the kids to break the world record.

I mean 25,000 people actually working, at anything… Is anti conservative capitalism!

First Lady Aims for Jumping Jack Record

Michelle Obama is looking for at least 20,425 people to help her break a Guinness World Record next week. The first lady will lead hundreds of children doing a minute of jumping jacks on the White House’s South Lawn on Tuesday, kicking off a 24-hour challenge, AP reports. Groups around the country will join the effort to beat the record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. Event organizer National Geographic has more details.
