Nigerian Secondary school students wins Guinness World Record for most skips on one foot
A secondary school student identified as Philip Solomon of Oyemekun Grammar school in Akure, Ondo state has been declared Guinness world record holder for most skips on one foot in 30 seconds.
Solomon beat the former record holder, Rasel Islam of Bangladesh whose record was 145 to create a new record of 153 skips in 30 seconds.
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.
