If you thought jumping was just for fun, think again; there have been more than a few attempts (and plenty of successes) in setting some serious jump records – and we mean Guinness records (told you they were serious).
In 2004, Kotetsu the pig set the record for the highest jump – for a pig. At a farm in Japan, he jumped an impressive 2 feet 3 inches.
Ever wondered how many times you can jump in and out of a pair of underwear in one minute? Well, Mattieu Bommier, of France, can do it 27 times, as of his 2001 record.
You’ve heard about the long jump, right? How about the reverse long jump? Jan Hempel of Germany jumped backwards 6 feet 7 inches in 2002.
And if you’re ready to “stick” the landing, maybe you should consult Jari Monkkonen of Finland who performed the longest standing jump with a handstand landing. He jumped 7 feet 4 inches to land on his hands!
Are YOU ready to jump around?
