Extreme acrobat Aiden Malacaria celebrated Guinness World Records Day 2017 (Thursday 9 November) with a fiery attempt in Sydney.

The performer set a brand new record for the Most fire breathing full twist backflips in one minute on the set of Aussie morning talk show Studio 10, where official adjudicator Solvej Malouf and the programme’s presenters stood watching from a safe distance!

Aiden had to achieve a minimum of eight in order to set the record, but he managed 10 sizzling twists.

Each jump had to be a complete 360° backwards flip and, whilst airborne, Aiden needed to perform a 360° lateral spin, and blow a flame, without falling – making this challenge both exhausting and risky.

However, the Aussie gymnast is an experienced professional who has been practicing his skills for a long time.
