Indian teenager in UAE makes 101 one-leg hops over ruler; finds place in Guinness book – Times of India


DUBAI: A total of 101 hops over a stationery ruler has brought Dubai-based Indian teenager Soham Mukherjee a Guinness World Records title.
Hailing from New Delhi, Mukherjee managed to break the previous title of 96 hops in 30 seconds.
“In a video taken in his bedroom Mukherjee completed 110 hops in total but 9 were deemed invalid,” a statement released by the global authority on record breaking was quoted as saying.
Mukherjee said the record was captured with two cameras and measured by a close-up slow motion.
“The record was measured by a close-up slow-motion video, so that the line object and my feet are clearly seen,” Mukherjee, who is in 11th grade at Dubai‘s GEMS Wellington International School, said in the statement.
|rediting his achievement to his active sports life, Mukherjee said what helped him break this specific record title is his long history of 13 years in taekwondo that requires a lot of leg work
“I came from a background of several sports, so I always felt more competitive than my peers. Since I moved to Dubai a year ago, I started to feel more productive,” he said.
“During lockdown, I wanted to test my determination, so I started to search for something to do to keep active and do a remarkable achievement, and then decided to go for an official attempt with Guinness World Records,” he said.
