In celebration of Guinness World Records Day 2015, Benedikt Mordstein (Germany) has broken his own record for the Fastest time to type a text message (SMS) on a mobile phone while performing head spins (breakdance).
The GWR guidelines state that the SMS message must be a well-known proverb with a minimum of 38 characters (including spaces), and Benedikt successfully completed the challenge typing "Ein blindes Huhn findet auch ein Korn.” in a dizzy speed of 56.65 seconds.
Taking place in Freising, Bavaria, Germany, Benedikt spent the duration of the attempt balanced on his head while rotating along the vertical axis of his body, without any other form of support, with only his head and hands allowed to touch the floor to keep the head spins going.
His typing was significantly faster than his first record which he achieved on the set of „Tag des Glücks – Die SKL-Millionen-Show“ in Munich, Germany, on 17 May 2013.
Benedikt also holds other breakdance records such as Most consecutive elbow spins (18) and the Fastest 20 m performing breakdance flairs (35.17 secs).
Packed full of the latest and greatest record-breaking facts and achievements, the Guinness World Records 2016 book and Gamer's Edition are out now.
