Student Zhang Shuang from China has entered the new Guinness World Records 2017 Edition with the impressive title Fastest 50 m walking on hands with a soccer ball between the legs.
Zhang covered the distance in a blinding 26.09 seconds during an attempt at the China West Normal University in Nanchong, Sichuan, China.
The incredibly-fit record-breaker studies sports at university and trains every day from very early in the morning until late at night.

Speaking about his incredible achievement, Zhang said: “I feel pleased that my daily training has paid off”.
He has been training for this particular record for about three years and has now set his mind to attempting more records in the future.

Zhang previously attended the CCTV Guinness World Records TV show in Beijing to attempt the record for the Fastest time to climb and descend 40 steps on the hands, but he narrowly missed out on the title to his speedy competitor Fan Congcong.
The record for the Fastest 50 m walking on hands (without the added difficulty of holding a football between the legs) is 16.93 seconds and has been unchallenged for a staggering 22 years.
However, we recently celebrated another talented inverted walker Kevin Delcò from Switzerland, who holds the record for the Fastest time to descend fifty steps walking on hands with an incredible time of 14.58 seconds.
Zhang is featured in the new Guinness World Records 2017 Edition book alongside thousands of other inspiring record breakers.
